Season Five Night Cricket has more prize money, new twists

Brace yourselves, members of the cricket fraternity! The pick of the tournaments and only Night Cricket event – The Kampala Boys Sports Cricket Club (KBSC) Premier League – Season 5 is here. 
The annual reloaded showpiece was officially launched on Thursday night at the Cooper Chimney Restaurant in Lugogo infront of a full house of the 16 teams participating teams, officials, organisers and members of the media. The previous seasons have showed that there is no lightweight in this tape-ball cricket format that will be played over 16 overs (preliminary phase) and 20 overs (knockouts) from next Friday (July 28) to September 4 at the home of cricket in Uganda – Lugogo Oval.

Despite the envisaged stiff competition, the franchises will not need any additional motivation to outlast defending champions Pak Stallions after the organisers announced that the stakes were higher this year with the winning team taking home Shs15m and runners up pocketing Shs8m – an increment from Shs10m and 7.5m respectively last season.

“We set the standard pretty high from the previous editions. We want to take it a notch higher this season. We want to keep everyone excited and involved,” said KBSC chairman Tejas, who also disclosed that there would be a tournament within the competition with the teams that don’t make it to the semifinals competing in a Super Over contest.
UCA’s Martin Ondeko lauded KBSC for being consistent in their endeavour to promote cricket and promised that the association would continue to support such projects.

Five in five for Tornado Bee ladies in league

The script is almost similar to last year’s. Like 2015 where they won the first seven matches, Tornado Bee now have made it five in five after seeing off KICC by 30 runs at Lugogo Oval on Saturday.

The result meant that Tornado Bee completed the first round of six-team topflight tier with 29 points. But it was double delight for their coach Jackson Ogwang who was celebrating his 28th birthday on the day.

“When we met on Thursday, I asked the girls to deliver a win on Saturday,” said Ogwang.
Shortly after the win, his players toasted to his birthday with a surprise cake. “I did not know that there was cake,” he said, “I was astonished!”

But the party was almost not taking place had Tornado Bee not found quick remedy for KICC’s Rihanna Mutesi.

In her nine-over bowling spell, Mutesi took figures of 5/29 and Gloria Adubu had 2/31 but Patricia Munguryek (30* off 48) and Saidat Kemigisha (24* off 25) guided Tornado Bee to 140 in 36 overs. Mary Nanderenga (35 off 105) and Adubu (19 off 66) could hardly take the big chains off their feet. In the end, it was KICC’s fourth loss.
