The Day Two competition of the 2018 ICC World Twen­ty20 East Asia Pacific Sub Regional Qualifier had to be called off yesterday.

International Cricket Council (ICC) tournament director Rob Gomm said the matches were post­poned due to the wet weather con­ditions in Suva,

“The player’s safety is the main priority that we will consider the most,” Gomm told SUNsports.

“We are not able to run the game because of the condition of the field.

“The game is now schedule for one of the reserve days and that is tomorrow.

“Since today’s matches have been postponed than teams will have to recover and resume their matches tomorrow.

“Hopefully, tomorrow we will be back here and the same fixtures for today will be on.”

Gomm said he is impressed with the tournament so far

“The first day of competition was amazing where we really had some close matches which were fantas­tic.”

“Excellent win from the Fijian team beating Vanuatu after a long time.”

The matches start today at 10am at Albert Park in Suva.
