Retired civil servant Setoki Galuvakadua is the acting chief executive officer for Cricket Fiji.
The Ono-i-Lau man has taken over from Inoke Lesuma who has resigned.
Cricket Fiji board chairman Gaurang Patel confirmed Lesuma resigned due to personal commitments.
“There was no such thing that CEO has been terminated from Cricket Fiji as stated in the email that was circulated,”Patel said.
“He resigned for personal reasons and the board has accepted it in good faith.”
Galuvakadua looks forward to his new challenge.
“I want to thank Cricket Fiji board for having confidence in me and appointing me as acting CEO for two months,”he said.
“I have served in the Government for 35 years and retired in 2013 and I also played cricket.
Lesuma acknowledges CF for the opportunity they have given him for the past months.
“It’s been a pleasure working with Cricket Fiji and I want to thank the board,” Lesuma said.

Jurgensen continue as coach
Shane Jurgensen resigned last month and after discussions with the Cricket Fiji board, he will continue his role as coach.
Jurgensen said he had discussions with the board on a few issues.
“We have also talked and discussed some issues that need to be sorted. This is based around how we operate on and off the field,”he said.
“I have a small family and being away from them for three years is long so those were some reasons I have discussed with the board.
“I’m willing to take Cricket Fiji to new heights.”
Patel said they look forward to work with Jurgensen.
“We will be looking into the issues which Shane has mentioned,” Patel said.
