Cook Islands Cricket Super Slam competition heads into round two playoff today at the Turangi Oval, starting at 11am.

In the opening match at 11am, Oceans 11 will take on Tupapa Tiger Sharks with the winner heading straight into the final.

In the other playoff match starting at 3pm, Nikao King Wolves will play East Coast Onu. The losing team will be eliminated and the winner will play the loser of Oceans 11 versus Tupapa Tiger Sharks match in the semi-final.

Cook Islands Cricket Association president Grant Walker said they completed the inaugural season of the Super Slam (preliminary rounds) and last weekend played the initial round of the double elimination playoffs.

“We finished the season with Oceans 11 in 1st, then the King Wolves, the Tiger Sharks, and in 4th the East Coast Onu.”

Walker said round one playoff saw Oceans 11 defeat the Onu by four wickets after scoring 176 runs for six in 17.2 overs. The team was chasing Onu’s score of 172 runs for eight in 20 overs.

Rain delayed the finish of the second game until Monday afternoon. 

Tiger Sharks defeated King Wolves by five wickets. King Wolves batted first and were all out for 117 runs in 17.4 overs. In reply, the Sharks overcame the target in 13.1 overs with five wickets in hand.
