Sport: Korean cricketers end on winning note

1:06 pm on 22 July 2014

The Korean Men's cricketers have ended their Fijian tour in winning fashion, beating a national 'A' side by 31 runs in Suva on Monday.

After electing to bat first, Sun Dae Sik and Cho Sung Hoon racked up a 69-run opening stand to lay the foundations for Korea's competitive 152 for 5.

The Fijian run-chase didn't start well with experienced opener Joe Rika forced to retire in the second over with a back injury.

Lee Hwanhee snared three wickets for just eight runs, including a wicket maiden, to further employ the brakes, with Fiji falling short at 121 for 7.

Korea managed four wins from eleven matches over the past fortnight.
