After a month’s break, Wanderers cricket club return to action against Kutchi Tigers on Sunday in the National Men’s 50 Over league looking to go top of the table.
The side’s last game was against Tornado Bees in September which they convincingly won thanks majorly to their captain Davis Karashani who notched a century.
With current table toppers Challengers out of action this weekend, Wanderers who host their games from Lugogo can reclaim the top spot in their final game of the season.
Karashani is full of praise for his teammates, and is hopefully of a great ending.
“I think we have done tremendously well, first of all to find ourselves in the second spot. However, if we can be able to pick up maximum points on Sunday, and hope that other results go our way, we can actually end up winning the league.
“The last time we won the league was in 2001, so it will be a fantastic job done by the lads considering we have just come from Division 2. For us to come and push the big teams in this particular format in our first time in top flight for a long while. I think we have done well so winning the trophy will be an icing on the cake.”
In the other men’s game, Nyakasura will take on Premier in Entebbe.
In the Women’s division, table toppers Aziz Damani meet Tornado Bees in their second game of the new season at Lugogo Cricket Oval on Saturday.
Damani coach Yusuf Nanga is confident of his side delivering the goods, but insists they’re not taking anything for granted.
“The girls are prepared and ready to win tomorrow’s game so that we can stay up there. We hope for the best, we pray for good weather so we can maximize our points.
“We are not taking any team for granted. All teams are good, that’s why they’re in the first division.”
Pioneer against Soroti Challengers at Entebbe Cricket Oval will be the other women’s game played on Saturday.
Soroti Challengers lie fourth on the log while Pioneer are rooted to the bottom of the table.
