Bobby Kumar and Rajnesh Prasad scored an upset win over defending champions Samuela Tui and Waisea Turaga 27-6 in the Suva Bowling Club National Open Pairs tournament yesterday. After a tough round robin competition, Martin Fong and Ramesh Chand have topped Section A while Semesa Naiseruvati and Kurtis Mar have topped Section B.

Bobby Kumar and Rajnesh Prasad have topped Section C while Section D winners are Abdul Kalim and Ravindra Pravin Prasad.

They have all qualified for the quarterfinals today. Tournament organiser Samuela Tui said it has been a competitive day one of competition and they are looking forward to a good final day.

“The tournament has been very good, the teams from the west have been putting up a good fight and making the rest of us really work hard,” Tui said.

“Most of the players who are Fiji reps are in the men’s quarterfinals so it is going to be a really good tussle in the men’s competition. On paper all the teams look good so I think it will come down to the wire for most of these teams.  We are thankful for the good weather that we have had which has allowed the players to enjoy the event and we look forward to an interesting day tomorrow.”

Meanwhile, the women’s grade still has three more rounds to play today to finish off their round robin.

 

Quarterfinals- Martin Fong/ Ramesh Chand v Semesa Tui/ Waisea Turaga; Abdul Kalim/ Ravindra Prasad v Arun Kumar/ Kushal Prasad; Bobby Kumar/ Rajnesh Prasad v Munesh Prasad/ Keegan Jaduram and Semesa Naiseruvati/Kurtis Mar v Jone Koroitamana/ Ben O’Connor.
