SUVA Cricket Association president Adriu Misiki expects a mouth-watering clash between Police and Oneata when they meet for the Perpetual Cup tomorrow.

Holders Police face the Green Energy Oneata at 11.30am at Albert Park in their first defence of the title.

Misiki said Oneata had recorded steady improvement in their games over the past few weeks.

He said veteran players like Walesi Soqoiwasa and Tomasi Ledua would add depth to the young side.

"I think Oneata has been preparing for their chance at the Perpetual Cup for some time now," Misiki said.

"The players in the team come from an island where cricket has been played for the past generations," he said.

"I believe they are ready to tackle Police and win their first ever title in the Suva competition."

Misiki said Police would also be out to prove their win over Moce II last week was no fluke.

"Police surprised everyone when they won the title from Moce II and this week they would want to prove that it was not a fluke.

"This will be a good challenge match and an exciting one that spectators can enjoy so I would urge cricket lovers to come to Albert Park to watch this mouth-watering clash," he said.
