DANAM Fiji maintained its third position in the Lautoka Cricket Association club competition after a six-wicket win against Nasaqalau Sharks at the Central College ground in Lautoka on Saturday.
The Sharks won the toss and elected to bat first. The side was all out for 93 runs in the Twenty20 fixture.
Sairusi Waqabaca top scored for the Sharks with 20 runs. Solomoni Tauyavu scored 10 runs.
Malinda R and Avantha S scooped two wickets each for Danam Fiji.
In replay Danam Fiji surpassed the target in 17.5 overs.
Michael Driu smashed 30 runs while Pawan Patel knocked 15 runs.
Tui Vuna claimed two wickets for the Sharks.
In other matches, the Lautoka Knights defeated the Sharks by 34 runs while Moce West claimed a no sweat default win against Nakavu Two.
Competition referee Alvin Kumar said with the excellent display, the selectors would have a tough time selecting the Lautoka team for the Crompton Cup.
Kumar said the Knights finished round one strongly with two good wins.
"Interestingly, the Knights lead the top scoring department," he said.
"Their players Dharsan Kapadia with 54 runs and Ebrahim Cassim with 51 runs have the best batting figures. Hopefully the team will continue its strong performance in the second round.
"Round one really saw great performances by all the teams and this will make it hard for the selectors to choose the Lautoka team for the upcoming Crompton Cup."
The competition will take a break next week.
Nakavu One leads after round one with 129 points and is followed by Moce West on 113 points, Danam Fiji on 105 points, Knights on 100 points, Nasaqalau on 73 points and Nakavu Two on 30 points.
