KOMO and Covenant Brothers stand a good chance of playing in the premier grade of the Suva Cricket Association competition from next season.

This was after the two sides finished at the top of the A-grade table after five rounds of competition.

Association president Adriu Misiki said Komo lost only one game this season.

He added the biggest surprise was that both Komo and Covenant Brothers were new to the competition this season.

"Komo have been very consistent this season," Misiki said.

"And Covenant Brothers is a team which does not come from a cricket background and most of their players are rugby players and one of them is national sevens team captain Osea Kolinisau.

"Also the fact that they are both new to the competition is surprising and should be a lesson to the other teams in the competition."

He said a few rounds of games for the premier division was left to be played.

"Some games remain in the premier grade but it seems like Ono-i-Lau might be one of the teams that could be relegated.

"The two bottom placed teams from the premier division and the two top teams from the A-grade will play in the promotion/relegation three weeks later."
