News: Japan lose to Fiji

EAP Trophy game 1 – Japan v Fiji
Fiji won by 8 wickets

Japan 188 (50 overs)
Fiji 189/2 (42 overs)

Japan did manage to get Fiji pinned down at 22-1 in 10 overs, but Fiji took the game comfortably in the end. I am not surprised, because I was expecting Fiji to beat Japan, though I was hoping that Japan would be able to upset Fiji and make it to the top 30 cricket teams in the world.

Japan is still not out of it, though after this thrashing, I would not expect them to win over Fiji and qualify in the second round. I guess at the momment, what they need to do is to beat Cook Islands and underline their credentials as the second best team in the EAP region.

    With Fiji defeating Cook Islands by 5 wickets, it seems as though Japan may be the poorest of the 3 teams in the region..

    Also, Cook Islands are 14/0 off 11 overs against Japan…Interesting!

    Not to worry, I think Japan will pull through against Cook Islands.

    Nasir..

    The most impressive thing about this entire tournament for me is the amount of coverage and importance Australian cricket authorities are giving to it..it’s surprising that Queensland cricket website has even put up photos from the two concluded games on their ‘exclusive’ webpage for this tournament..Infact, there are links to the Japanese cricket website where you can get regular score updates of all the matches involving Japan!
