THE Ratish Lal-skippered Islands Electric team recorded two wins in the Fiji Airways Club Open Fours Championship at the Nadi Sports Club greens yesterday.

Lal, the former world number three who is making a comeback on the bowls scene after a short lay-off, showed his experience to inspire his team.

The Islands Electric team with Raymond Singh, Abdul Kalim and Iliaz Khan defeated Jaduram Investments 19-13. The Jaduram Investments team was skippered by Babu Khan and had Keegan Jaduram, Paul Jaduram and Paul O'Conner.

In the second match, Islands Electric downed Kanda Samy Mudaliar's Unique Refrigeration 19-14.

The Islands Electric team will face Rina's Electrical in the final pool today.

Top seeds Fiji Gas with Samuela Tui, Arun Kumar, Curtis Mar and David Aitcheson remain unbeaten.

The Nadi Sports Club team with Sheryl Mar, Doreen O'Conner, Sophie Khan and Maria Patel also recorded two wins.

Heavy rain delayed the start of the tournament.

The final round of pool matches will be played this morning.

The top two teams from each pool will qualify for the quarter-finals.
