Olila High CC Vs Aziz Damani CC
Saturday 29th, 2018
Players To Watch
Olila High CC:
Joyce Mary Apio
Aziz Damani CC:
Lugogo will play host to probably the biggest game in ladies’ cricket this yeah with the tournament favourites Aziz Damani and Olila High CC clashing for honours.
Olila High Cricket Club opened their campaign with the narrowest of wins stolen from KICC on the opening day of fixtures. Boosted by that win, they go into this fixture with the confidence of denying their opponents a shot at glory.
Felix Musana, the pioneer of the Soroti Cricket Academy where the majority of the Olila High CC players come from was quoted saying;
“It is really good to play the game with the math in our heads online. When we set, we need to know what score we need, to bowl them out so as to get that bonus point. When we are chasing, we need to know the overs by which we should have chased that score. Cricket is a good sport if you clearly know how the math is done.”
In his response to the upcoming fixture, Aziz Damani head coach Yusuf Nanga had the briefest of words when he said;
“May the best team win the league.”
There will be no luck of talent at this star studded game when both team teams lock horns on Saturday in Lugogo. The likes of Racheal Ntono, she-cranes vice-captain Janet Mbabazi, Joyce-Mary Apio, among others will be ever present for Olila High. Damani will have the likes of Immaculate Nakisuyi, Getrude Candiru, Sarah Bakhita, among others to see to the Olila challenge.
Damani were denied the opportunity to garner some points on the table over the weekend when their fixture against Wanderers was cancelled due to the unavailability of the grounds at Kyambogo. If they were denied the opportunity to do so, then they have chance to prove their worth when they face Olila High.
This is going to be one of the best games of the season. Miss if you must.
