Suva Warriors are crowned the 2018 Easter Cricket champions.

The Warriors beat Lakeba in the grand final at Albert Park, Suva, yesterday.

Lakeba batted first and scored 109 runs for the loss of 10 wickets while Warriors scored 110 runs at the fall of nine wickets.

Speaking to SUNsports, Warriors coach Gaurang Prasad said he’s excited with the win since it’s after a three-year lapse.

“So proud of the win today,” Prasad said.

“For the last two years the competition has been won by Moce and Suva Crusaders.

“The players’ were very disciplined with the way they played during this year’s East­er competition.” Prasad acknowledged the support of Cricket Fiji to the team during their preparation.

Cricket Fiji general manager Setoki Galu­vakadua said the player’s performance in this year’s competition has really improved and with that they were able to select poten­tial players that will represent the country in August.

“That is primarily the purpose of the East­er competition,” he added.
