Nitin Sundar

A team from Sydney is amongst the eight taking part in this weekend's annual Easter tournament in Suva, Fiji.

Friends United Sports Club will join seven representatives sides from across Fiji to conest the event, which will be played using the Twenty/20 format for the first time.

The return of Komo and Oneata from the Lau group of islands reflects the rejuvenation of the tournament, which has struggled in recent years to attract teams. Previously, it was common for teams from New Zealand and Australia to take part in the three-day event which traditionally is the biggest in Fijian cricket, as well as the Tongan national team.

Also returning are teams from Lautoka and Nadi, from the western side of the main island, Viti Levu.

The eight teams will be split into two pools of four with pool games being played on Thursday, Friday and Saturday with the semi finals and grand final being played on Monday.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Nitin Sundar
Social media manager Nitin spent his formative years perfecting the art of landing the googly, before blossoming into a book-cricket specialist.

After four forgettable years of electrical engineering, followed by a rigorous MBA and 16 months in the strategy consulting industry, he began to ponder life's more profound issues. Such as the angle made by Brian Lara's bat with the horizontal at the peak of his back-lift. A move to ESPNcricinfo followed and Nitin is now a prolific nurdler in office cricket, with a questionable technique against the short ball.
