Top-of-the-table duel in Twenty20
Pomare, who has moved across town from Tauranga Boys’ College, finished his first day in green and gold with 30 not out.
The two other round-four encounters see Element IMF Cadets favoured to dispatch Bond & Co Tauranga Boys’ College and a Lakeland derby between GM Painters Lake Taupo CC and Bayleys Central Indians.
There should be a good scrap in the early-afternoon round between New World Te Puke and Tauranga Boys’ College with the winner claiming their first points of the T20 competition.
Mount Maunganui will be odds-on to defeat Central Indians and Lake Taupo would have to produce a major surprise to lower the colours of Cadets.
