Tornado fell in an ambush well laid by Challengers at the small Budo Cricket Oval.

Challengers scored a season record high of 466/6 in their 50 overs just 34 runs shy of 500 runs with Arnold Otwani (115) leading the onslaught with a well-played century, his first of the season, while Trevor Bukenya (80), Zephaniah Arinaitwe (64), Steven Wabwose (74) and Perry Wazombe (49) came in handy.

It was the first time a Division 1 game was being played at Budo in over a decade and this brought about because of the unavailability of most grounds. In response Tornado never got going bundled out for 61 in under 15 overs.

In the other game, national team player Dinesh Nakrani inspired his Kutchi Tigers side to pick up a precious win against KICC.

Nakrani scored 100 off 102 balls to help Kutchi Tigers to set 235/7 in their 50 Overs. He then came back with the ball to pick up three key wickets to cap off an all-round performance.

The win more of the less guarantees Kutchi Tigers’ life in the top flight while KICC endures another barren campaign.

A lot was expected of KICC this season and they had been tipped to be one of the title challengers.

Records galore for Uganda at Kwibuka Women Tourney

By ESPNcricinfo

IN SUMMARY

Cricket. Captain Rita Musamali finished unbeaten on 103 off 61 whereas Alako was dismissed for 116 off 71 off the penultimate ball of innings as Uganda tore into the record books with a total of 314 for 2 in the allotted 20 overs against West African side Mali

Mali women’s miserable run in the Kwibuka Women’s Twenty20 Tournament 2019 continued for a third straight day, as they sank to a record 304-run defeat against Uganda’s Lady Cricket Cranes yesterday.
Mali had already set a world record for the lowest ever total on Tuesday, having been bowled out for 6 against Rwanda.
Their 10 all out came after Uganda had racked up a massive 314 for 2 after choosing to bat first - the highest total in all T20Is - men or women.
Opener Proscovia Alako and captain Rita Musamali both hit centuries for Uganda, the first time two centuries had been hit in the same innings of a women’s T20I. Alako made 116 off 71, and was run out off the penultimate delivery of the innings. Musamali stayed not out on 103 off 61, having shared a 227-run stand with Alako for the second wicket off 14.1 overs. Alako took the Player of the Match award.

Solo wicket
Oumou Sow bowled three overs, conceding 82 runs. Mali’s only wicket taker was Aicha Kone, who bowled Immaculate Nakisuuyi (34 off 18) in the sixth over, by when Uganda had already reached 82. Tenin Konate gave away only 32 runs in her four overs, the only bowler with an economy rate under 10. Mali bowled 61 extras, with 30 no-balls and 28 wides.
No Mali batsman made more than 4, with six falling for ducks. Their innings was wrapped up in 11.1 overs, with Mildred Anyigo’s 3 for 1 being the best figures. With a double round-robin league format, Mali will have to play each of Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda over the next three days.

Records broken in the match:
*Highest total in women’s T20Is, beating England women’s 250 for 3 against South Africa women exactly a year ago.

*The 227-run stand between Musamali and Alako is the highest for any wicket in women’s T20Is. The previous best was 182 put on by Suzie Bates and Sophie Devine against South Africa women , exactly a year ago. [South Africa women played two T20Is on the same day in Taunton on June 20, 2018]

*The margin of victory (304 runs) is the highest ever by a distance. The previous best in women’s T20Is was when UAE women beat China women by 189 runs in January.

*Mali have the three lowest totals in women’s T20Is, having incredibly achieved those on three consecutive days.

The 61 extras Mali gave up are the third most in women’s T20Is.

*The 82 runs Oumou Sow conceded are the most ever for Women’s T20Is. The most ever conceded in men’s cricket is 81 (in four overs) by Sarmad Anwar in a domestic match in Pakistan.
