Aziz Damani celebrate winning the league after the game against Tornado B

Sunday 5th November 2017

Lugogo Oval

Damani CC Vs Mwiri CC – 9:30 AM
Damani CC Vs Wanderers CC – 3:00 PM

League Champions on the first time of asking, Aziz Damani are a team on the up. They stopped Tornado B’s league-winning streak by claiming it for themselves with a game to spare.

Damani now wants to go for the season double. Even without 4 key players in Kenneth Waiswa, Arnold Otwani, Captain Brian Masaba and Steve Tikolo who were on national duty in Kigali, they easily saw off the challenge of Kampala Pirates last weekend.

Damani face both Mwiri and Pirates in games they are expected to win this Sunday in Lugogo. Kasujja Quaraish and his Mwiri boys have had a mixed season in Div 3 and they will be playing to avoid embarrassment on Sunday.

And in the afternoon Wanderers wont offer much of a challenge either, they were woeful against Strikers last weekend losing by 9 wickets and without big hitter Micheal Nuwagaba and Tembo Zubair, there can only be one winner in this encounter.

Brian Masaba is not downplaying his opposition and sees these games as crucial games .

Two crucial games for us, definitely looking to win those and gain some momentum in a tough group.

We are still working out the ideal T20 line-up. We had guys missing last weekend, so it will be interesting to see the dynamic on Sunday.

Damani will have Brian Masaba, Kenneth Waiswa, Arnold Otwani and Steve Tikolo back from national duty to add to Issanez Emmanuel, Fahad Sadiq and Benjamin Musoke.

Denis has represented Uganda in international cricket events including the World Cup. He is currently the captain of Wanderers Cricket Club.
