Four players who missed the Vanuatu-Fiji series in March have been picked for Fiji's squad in their World Cricket League Division Three campaign to be held in Darwin, Australia, later this month.

The four players - Iliesa Waqaituinayau, Filimoni Vuli, Sakaraia Lomani and Rajeev Patel - are part of a squad, captained by Seci Tuiwai, who will play two warm-ups against an Indigenous XI and the Northern Territory State XI.

He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
