Army keeps cricket title

VULI Turaganikoro may not have done much with the bat but he did just enough with the ball to claim three wickets for three runs to help his Army side retain the Perpetual Cup yesterday in the Suva Cricket Association competition.

Challengers Komo, playing Army for the first time, gave the defending champions a massive scare in the first innings.

Army won the toss and elected to bat but lost five quick wickets for just 32 runs and then lost another when they stood at 43.

Association vice-president Alex Konrote said Army's bottom batting order picked up the intensity and the last two batsmen scored the final 40 runs to help their side reach 113 runs in their allotted 20 overs.

"In reply, Komo were all out for 56 runs with Turaganikoro, who had scored only four runs with the bat, taking three wickets for three runs," he said.

"Kitione Tavo took two for 16 runs and Army fielded well to dismiss all Komo batsmen as fast as they could."

This was the first loss for Komo in the premier grade.

Konrote said Westpac Sarafui will challenge Army for the Perpetual Cup next weekend.
