Vanuatu and New Caledonia hope to shine at Pacific Games

first_imgVanuatu coach Chris Moran said that the team has had a strong build-up for the Pacific Games. “Our early preparation was hampered by Cyclone Pam, but since then the team has trained well. The new practice nets have made a significant difference to the way the girls have been able to train and all squad members have made improvements to their skill level,” Moran said. “We have been lucky to have had visits by the New Caledonian team and the Melbourne Cricket Club, both giving us much needed game practice. As part of our preparation the national women’s squad participated in the Under 17 boys competition as well,” Moran added.“Batters who are in good form at the moment for our team are Leimaure Chilia, Rachel Andrew and Marcelina Mete while the bowlers to keep an eye out for are Rachel Andrew, Ruth Kaltongga and Valenta Langiatu,” Moran concluded. Team captain Marcelina Mete said that “The team is focussed on winning gold in PNG and have a strong belief that it can be achieved. We are very grateful and honoured to be selected to represent our country at the Pacific Games. We know we under-achieved last year in Japan and our goal is to show what we are truly capable of”.New Caledonia coach Steeven Selefen said his team recently toured Vanuatu this year and played several matches with the Vanuatu women’s team as a lead up preparations towards the 2015 Pacific Games.“Three of our most important and notable players are Siwa Rose, Wawine Louise and Qaeze Jeannette while Angexetine Rosina ought to be watched for her bowling abilities as well”, Selefen said.“We have been in weekly fitness and skills training and the prospects look bright for our participation in the Games,” Selefen said.For results, live scores and information on the 2015 Pacific Games Cricket please go to:www.icceap.comlast_img read more
