The Pacific MMI Lewas made an early statement with crushing wins in both of their matches played yesterday.
Skipper Pauke Siaka’s ‘player of the match’ performance, has placed Lewas at the top of the table. Beautiful sunshine greeted Sano for the first day of competition at the 2014 ICC EAP Women’s Trophy in Japan. All six teams were in action on day 1.
The Pacific MMI Lewas walked the talk with a double victory, and put on early lead in the competition. In the morning matches, Lewas held on tightly to Vanuatu, while displaying disciplined bowling and fielding. Skipper Pauke Siaka, was a page-turner as she went on to bag 24 runs, leaving Vanuatu handicapped at 43.
Lewas claimed a comfortable 67-run win over the much-fancied Vanuatu. Lewas continued their good form in their afternoon match against Cook Islands. Siaka formed a good combination with Membo Pendel Ipi and chipped in 42 while Ipi secured 37.
Lewas were on the cusp of moving into new era as they securely sit on top with two wins after round two of the competition.
In other matches, Samoa began the day in blistering fashion with a 10 wicket victory over the Cook Islands in the morning, but were left dry by host Japan by a five wickets win in their afternoon match. Cricket Without Borders put up a brave performance against the host nation in their friendly match, but went down by 26 runs.
Currently on the standings, PNG governs the top with four points, Samoa and Japan trailing with 2 points each, while Vanuatu and Cooks Islands are yet to register a point.
