THE Korean cricket side won their second match of their Fiji tour when they defeated the Fiji Board XI by five wickets yesterday.

After successive losses, Korea beat the Fiji A side by 25 runs on Sunday and then lost to the Cricket Fiji's Junior High Performance squad on Monday but bounced back to notch another win.

The Fiji Board XI won the toss and elected to bat and was off to a good start thanks to openers Metuisela Beitaki and Makutu Seru who scored 30 and 27 runs respectively.

Superb bowling from Choi Jiwon reduced Fiji Board XI run rate to 17 in four overs after the loss of two wickets.

The hosts then finished with 111 runs after the loss of five wickets in their allotted 20 overs at Albert Park.

In the second innings, opener Cho Sung Hoon top-scored with 44 runs and it was just the start that the Koreans needed.

Jikoi Kida took two wickets for 15 runs, Riyad Khan took two for 19 and Josefa Gauna took one for 12 runs but it was not enough as the Koreans continued to pile on the runs.

Daneil Ilhwan Seo also contributed with 25 runs and the visitors reached the intended target in just 16.3 overs after the loss of five wickets.

Today, Korea will face a representative side of the Suva Cricket Association at 1pm at Albert Park.
