ARMY successfully retained the Perpetual Cup when they beat challengers Moce I yesterday at Albert Park in Suva.

They won the toss and elected to bat and were all out for 107 runs in 15 overs.

Vuli Turaganikoro was their top run-scorer with 51 to his name.

Tuinasau Rarawa was the best bowler for Moce I in the innings as he took three wickets for 26 runs.

In the second innings, Moce I was all out for only 57 runs in 17 overs and Iniasi Cakacaka as their top run scorer with 13.

Army's Sakaraia Lomani, who was caught out for just nine runs when batting, made amends when it was his turn to bowl.

He took four Moce I wickets for five runs in the innings.

Competition official Mohammed Ali said Army played good cricket under the clear skies in the Capital City.

"They are very dangerous with both the bat and ball," he said.

"So when it was their turn to bat, they made over a century and when it was their turn to bowl, they fielded very well."

He said the next challengers for the Cup could be newly promoted club Covenant Brothers.
