Sport: Fiji cricket coach seeking improvement

10:39 am on 29 November 2014

2015 is shaping up as a busy year for Fiji Cricket and coach Shane Jurgensen says all of their national teams are capable of lifting their games.

The Fiji men's team earned promotion to World Cricket League 6 during the week after beating Samoa by nine wickets in the East Asia Pacific playoff.

Jurgensen says fitness played a big part in their success but says that will be tested next year amidst a packed calendar.

"That exposure for more cricket: World Cricket League, Pacific Games next year, Under 19s, women's programme - I think that's probably the area we need to continue to work on is when we come against those really really good teams, that period where the game is sort of in the balance and what's the next best decision to do when we're bowling [or] what's the next best decision to do when we're batting and controlling that situation and that's something we will have to keep working on next year".
