Tomorrow these 6 SINAS will be part of the FINAL National Women's Trial for the Fiji Women's Cricket Team that will be participating in the ICC Women's World Cup Qualifier later this year.
They have tried their best these last few months to balance work, studies and family and despite having many things working against them selectionwise, they've just put their heads down and gotten on with the business at hand.

How proud we are of these 6 Trendsetters...setting the pace for the rest of the SINAS SQUAD. They have all earned their place in this FINAL TRIAL and we ask for your well wishes and prayers to be with them for tomorrow. The Trials start at 2pm at Albert Park.

All the best and God Bless you....very very very proud of you all for making it this far.
