The touring Korean cricket team have won their latest match in Fiji, defeating a Fiji Board XI by five wickets in 20/20 contest in Suva.

The win comes on the back of two defeats the day before at the hands of Fiji's high performance squad.

The Koreans will play ten matches in all, adding up to ten opportunities for Fiji's new national coach Shane Jurgensen to have a good look at the talent at his disposal ahead of the team's tour to India in October.

Fiji's coach, Shane Jurgensen says the competition is giving both teams much needed match practice.
