THE Abdul Kalim-skippered national team has drawn a tough pool for the Tiger Bowls Championship which starts in Hong Kong this afternoon.

Fiji is in Group C with China A, Guangzhou, VLBC-B, LBTC-A and GLBC-B.

The national side with Kalim, Iliaz Khan, Ratish Lal and Santok Singh had a practice session upon their arrival in Hong Kong.

Kalim said the weather was a bit cold for them with the temperature about 17 degrees.

He said they would face top seed China A in their opening round match.

"This tournament is played in the abbreviated format with only eight ends," Kalim said.

"There will be short breaks after each pool game which will be completed on the first day."

A total of 72 teams have entered the two-day tournament. They have been divided into 12 groups of six teams each.

The teams will compete in a round-robin format. At completion of the group stage, all teams will be ranked according to their game results.

The top 36 men teams will be grouped in Cup section while the remaining teams will be grouped in Plate section for the qualifying rounds.

The 17th Tiger Bowls is supported by Hong Kong Lawn Bowls Association and is approved by World Bowls Limited.

Fiji won the event in 2010.
