In a low scoring weekend, Damani showed their class by making light work of Partidar at Kyambogo winning by 9 wickets.

U19 national team captain Kenneth Waiswa led they way with a brilliant spell of medium pace bowling returning figures of 4/9 backed up by Fahad Sadiq with figures of 3/4.

Tornado B found the going tough in Entebbe but managed to beat Kutchi Tigers by 14 runs. Kutchi Tigers had former kenyan captain Hiren Varaiya and current Vice Captain Shem Obado in their camp, both spinners give tornado B a hard time returning figures of 3/9 and 2/25 respectively.

Tornado B could only manage to score 133 all out with Deus Muhumaza (21) and Francis Otieno (21) contributing double figures, unfortunately Bharat Ghodadra’s (40) was in vain as Kutchi fell short by 14 runs all out for 119.

KICC got back to winning ways defeating Nile by 7 wickets. Frank Nsubuga spun webs around Nile Batsmen picking 7/17 to restrict Nile to only 61 runs all out. Ziraba arthur (21 not out) and Siraje Nsubuga (18) knocked off the deficit within 10 overs.

“We lost our first game against Damani but our hard luck as the middle order collapsed. But our team was also playing its 1st game as a unit with some new inclusions. We got the desired result against Nile because we played as a disciplined unit,” Hanumat Captain of KICC had to said of the game.

In Division 2, ACC beat wanderers by 61 runs in Buddo. ACC posted 216 all out thanks to Trevor Kapere’s gusty innings of 60. Wanderers in reply only managed 155 all out with Adonia Waibale (49) and Micheal Nuwagaba (37) making some cameos. Kintu Micheal (4/32) got the 2nd hatrick of the season against wanderers.

In Jinja, Strikers managed to beat Jinja SS by 39 runs in a very close game. Strikers posted 123 all out but managed to defend their total with Jinja SS collapsing for 84 runs.

On Saturday in Division 3, Joshua Mwanja turned back the hands of time scoring a big century of Kampala Pirates against Nyakasura. In a top of the table clash Pirates came out victors posted 240 thanks largely to Mwanja’s (112), Nyakasura could only manage to score 107 all out.

Kings College Buddo picked up valuable points against JACC in Buddo. Buddo posted a big total of 267 all out with Jacc only managing a paltry 147 runs. Captain Abu Mayanja led from the front with a decent 32 supported by Thawitamwira Phillip who scored 39.
