THE Komo cricket side made a dream debut in the Suva Cricket Association premier grade competition.

This is their debut season and they were promoted from A-grade to the premier grade last week and last Saturday, they beat BSP Titans by nine wickets.

BSP batted first and lost nine wickets for 126 runs in their allotted 20 overs with Lautoka duo Rukesh and Gaurang Patel scoring 36 and 25 runs respectively.

In reply, Komo lost only one wicket and managed to reach 127 runs in just 16 overs with national under-17 rep Saimoni Tuitoga scoring 96 runs not out. Tuitoga had just returned from competing in the New Zealand U17 Championships where he played for the Wellington Development XI.

Association vice president Alex Konrote said it was the first time this season someone came close to hitting a century.

"He is a high school student and for him to score 96 runs is a big achievement," he said.

"And BSP were playing with their full squad against Komo who were playing their first game in the premier grade where BSP is placed third behind leaders Army and Yadrana."

In other matches, Westpac Sarafui beat Moce II by 31 runs, Yadrana beat newly promoted Covenant Brothers by 18 runs and Army retained the Perpetual Cup by defeating Moce I by 50 runs.

The A-grade competition, Police beat Nasaqalau by five runs and demoted VICC beat SGSOB.

"SGSOB batted first and were all out for only 40 runs in 13 overs with Malcolm Bosley of VICC taking six wickets for 18 runs.

"In reply, VICC lost only one wicket and surpassed the target in just six overs."
