THE visiting Korean cricket side was exposed again on Thursday afternoon.

The Board XI Fiji Cricket Team struck out Korea with a hectic 2 for 211 runs from 20 overs at Buckhurst Park.

Board XI won the toss and opted to bat first. First up on the line-up were the dominant duo, Giles Smith and Rabici Lesuma.

Smith began the game with 81 runs in 14.6 overs, however, his drive for more runs was short-lived as Korean bowler Inho Gus Cha bowled strongly towards Giles only to be caught later by Sangwook Lee. Colin Rika came on for Giles.

Colin completed with four runs as Park Taekwan's bowling was just too powerful for him to handle and was caught off his guard. Viliame Yabaki came on for Colin.

Rabici became the highlight of the game as he dominated and ended with an astonishing 96 runs from 20 overs whilst Viliame Yabaki completed with only 8 runs.

Korea walked away yesterday disappointed at the 10 for 46 runs off 11.3 overs.
