CHALLENGERS TAKE ON NEWCOMERS SKLPS AS TORNADO BEE LOOK TO STING PATIDAR

Challengers are wounded from last weekend after losing to rivals Aziz Damani in a heated battle at the lakeside oval in Entebbe.

Challengers don’t have enough time to lick their wounds as they seek to get back to winning ways as they take on newcomers SKLPS.

SKLPS will need to be at their best if they are to take down a wounded Challengers at the Lugogo Cricket Oval. Challengers will be hoping for good weather so that their star-studded line up that has the likes of Hamu Kayondo, Arthur Kyobe, Shahzad Kamal, Zephaniah Arinaitwe and Olipa Rogers show their class.

At Kyambogo, Tornado Bee will be seeking for their third win of the season as they take on Patidar. This encounter is a six-pointer of sorts as the teams in the bottom half of the league battle for points that will keep them in the league.

Tornado Bee, the four-time league winners, lost a lot of experience in the offseason but they have managed to assemble a side with a lot of experience. One of their new recruits Falak Sher scored a season-high individual double century as they walked over Tornado. If they can pick up their third win of the season they will need atlas just two more wins to guarantee their place in Division 1 for next year.

Patidar put together a good side with some exciting youngsters such as Cosmas Kyewuta, Ronald Opio, Collins Okwalinga but none of them have delivered the goods for the newly-promoted side.

Patidar is rooted at the bottom of the table and needs to start winning games before they run out of the same to save their season.

DAMANI DEAL WITH KUTCHI TIGERS AS SKLPS SHOCK PATIDAR

Once the rain stayed away over the weekend, Aziz Damani made sure they take care of business with a 121-run win over Kutchi Tigers.

The match played at the University Oval in Kyambogo saw Damani win the toss and choose to bat 1st.

Even the early loss of Roger Mukasa (24) with only 37 runs on the board didn’t help Kutchi Tigers in any way as Saud Islam (41), Brian Masaba (41) and Frank Nsubuga (42) all contributed to a team total of 196 all out.

With a dry wicket, Henry Ssenyondo (5/16) and Frank Nsubuga (3/19) spun webs around the Kutchi Tigers batsmen bundling them out for 75 in 20 Overs.

The win is the first for the defending champions this season as they seek a third straight title.

The shock of the weekend came at Lugogo where SKLPS shocked Patidar with a two-wicket win.

SKLPS won the toss and made a wise decision to field first and they quickly reduced Patidar in 2/5 in 2.3 overs to have their tails up in the contest of the promoted sides.

Unfortunately, Patidar failed to recover from that collapse with only Derrick Bakunzi (20) having a decent score as they crumbled to 83 all out inside 28 overs.

The pace of Innocent Mwebaze (5/26) and Cosmas Kyewuta (3/31) nearly swung the game for Patidar as they combined to pick up eight wickets but SKLPS were able to hold on for the win by two wickets.

At the Lakeside Oval in Entebbe, Challengers were undone by a wet wicket as they shared points with Tornado in a no contest.

Kutchi Tigers are top of the table for now by virtue of having played the most games but Damani, KICC and Challengers are all lurking.
