Suva starts round two

AN exciting competition is anticipated in round two of the Suva Cricket Association weekly club competition today.

In the feature match, the Perpetual Cup challenge, Army will play Moce I at Albert Park I at 11am.

Both teams are laced with national reps and Moce is banking on the experience of Iniasi Cakacaka to topple champions Army, who have Kitione Tavo and Sakaraia Lomani and led ably by the ever-green Tupou Colati.

In another exciting encounter, newcomers to premier grade Covenant Brothers will battle against Yadrana.

"It will be a great challenge for the young Brothers team trying to contain the dangerous attack bowling of Samu Draunivudi and Taione Batina," Suva Cricket official Alex Konrote said.

BSP Titans led by former national cricketer Omid Saberi will face the winners of the A-grade, Komo in another exciting match while Moce II takes on Sarafui.

"Komo will be out to prove that they belong in the premier grade but face an uphill battle against the likes of Ram Bajekal, Riyadh Khan and fast bowler Lee Waqa," Konrote said.

"Both (Moce II and Sarafui) teams are laced with development players but are ably led by experience with former Fiji reps Inoke Kacilala and Tamani Ledua leading Moce II and Sarafui with the likes of the Rika brothers Colin and Joe and last year's highest runs scorer expatriate Gavin Pereira.

"Moce II defeated Sarafui in round one and will be looking to repeat that in this game."

Meanwhile in the A-grade matches, Nasaqalau will take on Police while VICC faces Suva Grammar Old Scholars.

"Round two will not be easy to predict as all teams have been working hard throughout the season so we're expecting quite a few upsets."

Competition starts at 8am.
