PROMOTION PLACES AT STAKE AS ACC TAKE ON AVENGERS IN DIVISION 2 ACTION

ACC has come close to promotion in the past seasons and this year they might lie in 4th place but they have an outside chance of finishing second only if they can go past Avengers.

Avengers who are in second place are the favorites with an 11 point difference between them and ACC.

Avengers who joined the league in 2016 have the ascendence to gain promotion and as long as they can all their remaining games they will be able to go up with Ceylon Lions.

The battle for promotion will go down at Kings College Budo cricket oval and the winner will be guaranteed a shot at promotion.

If ACC loses this encounter they will virtually be out of the race for promotion so they cannot afford slip-ups. They will be hoping that their old guns Micheal Kintu, Amos Kyazze, and Emma Odeng can guide the youngsters to deliver a result they need.

Avengers have the potent of Harsh Panchal the leading wicket-taker in Division 2 with 27 scalps, he will be tasked with finding those early breakthroughs to make sure they limit ACC to a small total.

The weather has been very unpredictable this year and the first round encounter between these two was washed out, they will, therefore, be praying for good weather or even taking the field 1st when you win the toss to try and play a long game.

More at stake as Uganda, Kenya meet in T20 derby

From the Rugby Elgon Cup, perennial Cecafa engagements and more, you do not need much to tell the sporting rivalry between Uganda and Kenya.
A new episode of this East African derby is on cards today when the two friendly foes clash at the oval today in Benoni, South Africa on Day Two of the Pepsi ICC Africa Division One Twenty20 Championship. 
This will be the sixth T20 meeting between both sides in four years as they pursue the two available slots to the ICC Global Qualifier scheduled for July 9 - August 2 in Scotland.

“We need to beat either of Kenya or Namibia to have a chance for a berth in Scotland,” Team Uganda captain Brian Masaba said. “Obviously, we know the Kenyans better and we are ready to throw everything at them for a result,”

Mission Scotland
The Cricket Cranes will not only be aiming to pay back 19-run defeat suffered in front of their home crowd at Lugogo as they surrendered their African Twenty20 title to Kenya in 2013, they know victory will help them inch closer to Scotland. 
“That was a painful loss to take and this is the perfect time for revenge,” said veteran spinner Frank Nsubuga. 
In that loss, Alex Obanda, who was dropped early on, blazed 64 off 47 to help Kenya set 156 for 5. 
With charged levels of adrenaline, top-scorer Deus Muhumuza (22 off 16) and Kenya’s Tanmay Mishra had to be calmed down as Uganda fell short on 137.

“Defeat against our brothers always leaves us wounded but we will be pumped up enough to erase such low memories on Saturday (today),” Nsubuga added. 
Whereas Uganda has a new look side that has seven eight new faces from the team that was in Windhoek, Kenya have kept faith with their tried and tested crop, adding only a few youngsters.
