Despite failing to win a game, Fiji cricket coach Shane Jurgensen says there were some encouraging individual performances at the Under 19 World Cup, which bodes well for the future.
Fiji finished in last place in their debut appearance at the global tournament, after losing all six matches in Bangladesh.
Shane Jurgensen said the World Cup was a big learning curve for Fiji but it was pleasing watching some players shine on the big stage.
"Peni Vuniwaqa scored 160 runs in six games, so he was a standout with the bat, and we had Cakacaka [Tikoisuva] - he was at one stage the leading wicket-taker...for quite a few games and just got overtaken in the last game and then Josaia [Baleicikoibia] was excellent as well. We had a few players and these are the sort of players that will be stepping up in the senior men's team in years to come."
Shane Jurgensen said five players from the current squad will be eligible to play at the next Under 19 World Cup in 2018.
