Fijian cricket over Easter

Will Luke

Six Fijian district teams will contest the Diwarka Prasad Trophy, the premier domestic event in Fijian cricket, this weekend.

Played using a place-of-origin format, the best available players represent the district in which they were born, regardless of where they now live. The tournament is Fiji's only inter-district tournament.

Suva (1), Suva (2), Combined Lautoka/Nadi, Moce, Tubou and Natokolau will each play three 50-over games with the top two teams meeting in the final on Easter Monday.

The Shield is part of the selection of the Fijian national squad to contest the World Cricket League Division Four tournament in Tanzania in the latter part of 2008.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". 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.
