Jinja Oval

  • Wanderers CC Vs KC Budo – 10:30am

Avengers were humiliated in Jinja last weekend by ACC and they will be looking to make amends when they face Partidar in Budo.

Avengers failed to follow up their opening season win against Wanderers as they were bundled out for only 60 before ACC knocked it off for the loss of only one wicket.

Their opponents Patidar lost their first game of the season to a resurgent Tornado and they will also seeking to get their season going to avoid getting so far behind to the pace setters.

Patidar heavily recruited from Premier but the players are yet to find their midas touch which helped Premier win the Division 2 title.

Meanwhile, both Wanderers and Budo return to a ground they lost their opening games of the season. Budo lost to Tornado while Wanderers lost to Avengers and the latter has no more room for failure if they are to have a chance of promotion to the top flight next season.

Wanderers will have part of its main team in Abii Nobert and Nirav Hathi returning to beef up the bowling that was so blunt against Avengers.

Nothing but a win is what Wanderers should get but if they put down chances, Budo has an opportunity to hurt them.

Budo will have captain Abu Mayanja and the experienced Arnold Byarugaba return to the side after they both chose to sit out the opening game but the size of the battle requires all the experience.

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