Sekove Ravoka has starred for both his Australian club and association representative side, in what was a busy weekend of cricket for Western Australia’s country sides.
On Saturday Sekove scored 70 batting at number three for Cowaramup in their match against the Margaret River Hawks, before travelling to Perth on Sunday to represent the Busselton Margaret Rive Cricket Association in the Western Australian Country Cricket Board’s Twenty20 Finals. Sekove again top scored for his side in their match against the South Midlands Cricket Association, with a remarkable 51, in a tournament that saw five rounds of matches played over two days.
Over in South Australia another Fijian was the top-scorer for their team, with Alicia Dean hitting a true captain’s knock of 43 in her team Port Adelaide’s win over Southern Districts on Sunday in the South Australian Cricket Association’s Women’s A-Grade competition.
Meanwhile in Melbourne, Viliame Yabaki’s team, the Boroondara Cobras, have continued their dream run, winning their last home-and-away match of the season and progressing to next week’s semi-finals.
In the last round of matches in the Eastern Cricket Association’s competition, the Cobras played Clifton Hill in what was another two-day affair. Batting at number seven on day one Vili finished on a respectable seven not out, and was also instrumental in the field for Boroondara, taking a catch.
The Cobra’s will face Edinburgh in next weekend’s two-day, sudden death semi-final, while Sekove’s team Cowaramup will face St Mary’s in their last home-and-away match of the season, and Alicia’s Port Adelaide will play the Northern Bullants at home. Maciu Gauna’s side, Wests Illawarra, who compete in the Illawarra Cricket Association, will also continue their two-day match against Wollongong next Saturday.
