FORMER national rep Vilikesa Driu guided Nakavu One to a 24 run victory against Moce West in the opening fixture of the Lautoka Cricket Association league competition yesterday.

Driu was outstanding with the ball taking four key wickets to deny Moce West in the run chase.

Nakavu One won the toss and elected to bat in the Twenty20 fixture at the Central College grounds.

The Nakavu One team from Nadi was all out for 85 runs in 19 overs. Sakiusa top scored with 30 runs.

Iliesa Nawatu added to Nakavu One's tally with 20 runs.

Moce West's Vilisoni claimed four wickets.

In reply Moce West was all out for 61 runs in 12 overs.

Lautoka Cricket Association league referee Alvin Kumar said the first match was delayed because the turf was not cleaned after being mowed.

Kumar said the teams included many new faces.

"The positive sign is the introduction of the new players," he said.

"The younger players are participating and they will learn a lot in this competition."

In the second match Danam Fiji defeated Lautoka Knights by a massive 103 runs.

Danam Fiji scored a total of 159 in their innings. Lautoka Knights failed miserably with the bat. The side was bowled out for 56 runs.
