Friday, August 22, 2014

DEFENDING champions Ba go into the 2014 Inkk Mobile Battle of the Giants with an impressive record in the tournament which started back in 1978.

The Men in Black have won the title 16 times and have been the runner-up on six occasions.

The next best is Nadi with five wins and four runner-up positions.

Ba has kept a low profile heading into the opening pool stages today and will face arch rival Nadi in the feature match at 7.30pm.

Nippy striker Abbu Zahid Shaheed is back training with the team after a short stint in New Zealand.

Prolific striker Osea Vakatalesau is the notable exclusion from the squad. Vakatalesau has been nursing a knee injury he sustained during the Oceania Champions League in May.

He scored one of the goals in Ba's 3-1 victory against Lautoka in the final last year.

Epeli Codro, Meli Codro, Avinesh Waran Suwamy, Ronil Kumar, Jone Vesikula, Mavileko Nakama, Kiniviliame Naika and Aisea Codro are the experienced players in the squad.
