Matai was then joined by his younger brother, Mel Matai, and that was when the fireworks started. The last four overs would yield 49 runs. The senior Matai played some beautiful shots on both sides of the wicket, before he was caught on the deep mid wicket boundary, for a well played innings of 70 runs.
