NEW champions would be crowned in the Banana Cup pairs bowls competition today.

Defending champions Wise Bake and Vilisoni Vakatali lost two out of three games yesterday at the Suva Bowling Club.

A total of 26 teams entered the Rena Distributors-sponsored event and competition official Martin Fong said the last round of games today would determine who advances to the finals.

"Suren and Ramesh, Bobby Khan and Raju, Laqere Netava and Eminoni Turagabeci and Curtis Mar and Rick Eyre are the unbeaten teams in the competition," he said.

"The defending champions are completely out of contention for the title so new champions would be crowned.

"We still have one more round of games to be played before we can determine who meets who in the quarter-finals."

Wet greens and windy conditions resulted in a few upsets in day one competition yesterday and more upsets could be expected today.

"Abdul Kalim and his partner Shashta Nand were among the teams that suffered upset losses in the competition.

"Tomorrow, we expect stiff competition from all the teams because everyone is targeting to be in the final and win the Banana Cup."
