MOCE I are the new holders of the Perpetual Cup in the Suva Cricket Association competition.

This was after they beat defending champions BSP Titans by four wickets at Albert Park in Suva yesterday.

BSP went in to bat first and were reduced to 76 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

Former national rep Rukesh Patel was their top scorer with 25 runs.

In reply, Moce I reached the target after losing six wickets with Metuisela Bula and Iniasi Cakacaka as their top run scorers with 21 and 19 respectively.

In the other premier grade matches, Yadrana beat Sarafui and Novotel VICC lost to Army.

Sarafui batted first and were seven for 72 in their 20 overs with Colin Rika as their top run scorer with 20 runs.

Romero Nisa took three wickets for 17 runs for Yadrana, which during their term at the crease lost only one wicket but reached their target.

Sevuloni Baba was their top run scorer with 22 runs while Setuki Ravula and Jikoi Bure hitting 21 runs each.

In the other match, it was Army who batted first and set a massive target of 164 runs for VICC to chase.

Suva Cricket Association president Adriu Misiki said VICC were all out for only 45 runs in 15 overs.

"Penisoni Kotoisuva was the best bowler in the match as he claimed five wickets for 13 runs."

Misiki said after a few weeks they managed to get a sunny day for playing.

"For the past few weeks, the rain disrupted the competition but today (yesterday) we had sunshine throughout the day for us to have good cricket."
