Yadrana faces Moce I

FORMER champion Yadrana will try to win back the Perpetual Cup today when they face holders Moce I in the Suva Cricket Association competition.

The two sides meet at 11.30am on ground one at Albert Park. Association president Adriu Misiki is expecting a cracker of a match.

He said the two teams had been consistent performers in the premier competition and were in contention for the overall title along with Army.

"It's tough to say which of these two teams will win tomorrow (today)," Misiki said.

"They both have a good set of bowlers and batsmen to get the job done on the pitch."

However, he has picked out Samu Draunivuci of the Yadrana side to cause the biggest damage with the ball.

"He is still the best left-handed bowler in the country and has claimed a lot of wickets since the season started two months ago.

"Then there are batsmen Sevuloni Baba and Jikoi Bure who can score a lot of runs.

"In the Moce I side, their top player who they will be relying on would be Iniasi Cakacaka.

"He is their top spinner and batsman while their secret weapon would be Tamana Qio who is a young upcoming player and I think the national selectors should keep an eye on him because he is equally good in both bowling and batting."

In other matches, Army will take on Moce II, BSP will face Sarafui, VICC will be up against Ono-i-Lau and Nasaqalau will battle against Covenant Brothers.

"The match between Nasaqalau and Covenant from the A-grade was called off mid-way two weeks ago because of poor lighting.

"It's also the last match of the A-grade and it will determine the places of the team on the points table and then we can decide which teams will compete in the promotion/relegation matches later this month."
