ABDUL Kalim will spearhead Fiji's campaign at the Tiger Bowls Championship in Hong Kong next week.

Kalim, Westpac Banking Corporation senior relationships manager, will guide the powerful line-up which includes former world number three Ratish Lal.

Rookie Iliaz Khan and Santok Singh are also part of the team which is sponsored by Islands Electric Wholesalers.

Kalim and Lal are the two surviving members of the team that won the title in 2010. Semesa Naiseruvati and Som Padiyachi were part of the winning team.

Skipper Abdul said they were ready for the challenge.

"We have a good team," he said.

"Ratish is the most experienced player having travelled around the world competing in many tournaments.

"We have played together on a few occasions and know our strengths and weaknesses."

A total of 34 countries will be represented in the tournament. Khan who will be making his national debut said it was a dream come true after taking up the sport recently.

The Ba Football Association secretary said he would give it his best shot.

"I have been involved in soccer for a long time and now I get a chance to represent the country in another sport," Khan said.

"I have a lot to learn playing alongside Ratish who is one of the best in the sport."

Khan was the Fiji under-23 manager in 2003.

The team will head to Hong Kong on Thursday and will also play in the China Open Championship.
