NAKAVU Two will be breaking new grounds by introducing women players in the Lautoka Cricket Association league competition.

The league competition starts at the Central College ground this morning.

A total of six clubs have registered for the competition which will be played for the next two months.

Lautoka Cricket Association events manager Rukesh Patel said the number of clubs had increased this year.

Patel said matches would be played in the Twenty20 format.

"Interestingly the Nakavu Two team will have a number of women players," he said.

"They are using this competition as a build-up to the Inter District Competition which will be held in March. After a lapse of three years we have managed to organise a six club competition.

"This shows that the interest in the sport is increasing. We want to select a formidable team for the Crompton Cup competition in April."

Moce West will take on Nakavu One in the first match at 9.30am.

Former national rep Mosese Ravula will spearhead Moce West's campaign.

The side will also have top batsman Colati Ravula.

Nakavu will be boosted with the services of Vilikesa Driu, Tayasa Vakarau and Patrick Tuidraki.

In the second encounter, Danam will face Lautoka Knights.

Nakavu Two and Nasaqelau are on a bye.
