Opinion: Tanzania U19 v Fiji U19, 2005

Since the 2005 U19 WCQS was combined for the regions of Africa and EAP, I fould this scorecard to be an interesting one. It looks like it was a fairly big mismatch with Tanzania beating Fiji by 214 runs, dismissing Fiji for 90 in 25 overs. I am not sure why the Fiji U19 team is so weak compared to Tanzania, but thats apparently how the situation is.

    Very Interesting result…I looked at the scorecard and many of the guys from the Tanzania squad play in the senior team that just qualified for the WCL Division 3 tournament. I don’t think Fiji have ever been that strong at the junior level. Very interesting result though. Makes you wonder what the level really is at such a tournament because Tanzania came 4th or 5th at this tournament, and two world cup qualifiers from this tournament, Namibia, and Uganda were much weaker than Nepal and Ireland.

    Assalamu alaikum Nasir.
    I was just surfing the net on Fiji Cricket and found your website. Yeah I am surprised with Fiji’s performance because i reckon they still have very competitive bunch in the islands.
    Fiji was a powerhouse in the 1950s and 1960s but after independence from Britain Cricket sadly has declined over the decades.
    I used to live there in the 1980s.The West Indies visited the islands in the 1950s and were defeated. In 1977, Pakistan played 3 unofficial one-dayers. In 1982- India visited and 1984 the English test team.
    To my knowledge there is renewed interest by ICC re-develop the game there that has been taken over by rugby and soccer.
    I hope Fiji rebuilds its cricket because the Fijians are a natural sportsmen. I hope that some Pakistani clubs and technical advisors visit the islands and help the Fiji Cricket Association.
