JACK Akbar Trophy champion Ishwar Nand did not expect to win the Jack Akbar Shield yesterday after the one day competition at the Fiji Golf Course in Suva.

Nand was caught by surprise when his name was announced as the Nett winner at the closing ceremony.

“I love this sport and even though I am 71 years old I still very much enjoy playing. Today (Thursday) I played really well in the first nine holes, in the second nine holes it was a bit difficult because of the conditions but I enjoyed it.

“It won’t stop here, I plan to continue with the sport I love,” he said.
