Lautoka clinches cricket gold

Saturday, May 05, 2007

LAUTOKA clinched the gold medal during the Fiji Games cricket competition after beating Suva at Albert Park yesterday.

Led by Herbert Christopher, who was named player of the tournament, the side won by eight wickets.

Suva batted first and was all out for 57 runs. In reply, Lautoka managed 58 runs.

Christopher, who captained the Fiji Under-15 side in 2005, was well assisted by former Indian national Gaurang Patel.

Moce beat Tailevu for the bronze medal play-off. Suva came through unbeaten in the round robin to top the points table.

Lautoka clinched a final berth after beating Moce by five wickets thanks to brilliant batting by Christopher. Meanwhile, national selectors will name a Fiji squad to participate at the East Asia-Pacific world cup qualifiers in Vanuatu.
