National Men’s 50 Over League: Challengers, SKLPS seek redemption


Challengers went down to Ceylon Lions last weekend by 25 runs hurting their chances of winning their 1st 50 over league title, they come up against SKLPS this weekend and need to get something quickly in the win column.

SKLPS lost to Wanderers by 5 wickets on the opening weekend of the season and for them they are fighting for their place in the top flight.

Challengers is loaded with a lot of talent with Frank Akankwasa, Arnold Otwani, Richard Agamire the trio from the national team to add to the likes of Wasim Butt, Emmanuel Hasakya, Perry Wazombe and
Zephaniah Arinaitwe. They should be favourites to take the day if everything goes for them.

Nyakasura were put to the sword by Aziz Damani Development last weekend, indifferent in performance scoring 300 runs in their opening game but folded for only 85 in their second game against Aziz Damani Development.

Pascal Murungi and his side face school side Jinja SSS and they should have enough to get past the students.

Ivan Thawithemwira scored a century on the opening day of the season and he should be the go to man for runs for Nyakasura.

Pascal Murungi is yet to light up the league given his exploits in the World Cup but he is a value man.

Aziz Damani Development will take on Premier Cricket Club, Aziz Damani too strong for Nyakasura last weekend
but will face a stun test against Premier this weekend.

The World Cup boys in Aziz Damani Yunusi Sowobi, Fahad Mutagana, Ronald Lutaaya will be required to be at their best if they are to pick up their second win of the season.

1. Jinja SSS v Nyakasura – 10am Lugogo
2. Aziz Damani Development v Premier – 10am Kyambogo
