Football boss to run Fiji cricket

ESPNcricinfo staff

Cricket Fiji will be headed by a football chief executive from next month. Martin Shaw, the former Football Federation Tasmania chief executive, has been recruited after three and a half years in his current role.

Cricket’s profile in Fiji is rising steadily but the game’s administrators are now hoping for a bigger increase with Shaw on board. He will help to develop the game from grass-roots level. “It should be a challenge,” he told Fijilive. “I think a lot more of my time will be spent at grass roots level in a more relaxed culture.”

This is a good step forward for Fiji cricket. Grass-roots are certainly where the improvement should be targeted first and foremost.
