Aziz Damani wrapped their maiden league title last season against the same side last season at the same ground in Entebbe.

Then Defending champions Tornado Bee surrendered their title to Damani in a low scoring thriller at the lake side oval last year but their meeting this season on the same ground is a mere formality.

Damani have already wrapped up the league but they will want to finish the season unbeaten, a feat that has been achieved by Tornado Bee during their four-year run title wins.

Damani have been by far the best team in the league winning some games without testing the depth of their squad. Kutchi Tigers were the only side who came close to inflicting defeat to the side in a low scoring thriller at Lugogo but fell short by 8 runs.

It is the only game of the season in which Damani lost all its 10 wickets. They have coasted to the other 12 wins with no much fuss and this battle at the lake side oval might be just another statistic in a very dominant season.

Tornado Bee will be relying on Oman bound Roger Mukasa and Deus Muhumuza for inspiration but Damani has up to six players on the team to Oman.

Cricket Cranes vice captain Brian Masaba, Kenneth Waiswa, Bilal Hassun, Riazat Shah, Henry Ssenyondo and Kenneth Waiswa were all selected on the Cricket Cranes squad to Oman and Tornado Bee will have to work super hard to deal with that kind of line up.

The only motivation for Tornado Bee coming into this game will be trying to make sure they are the only side to win the league unbeaten.

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