AFTER helping Rwenzori Warriors lift the East Africa Cricket Cup, Humphrey Kayondo is out to shine on another front.
He is keen to inspire his Wanderers team to the Multiple Industries Division I cricket league title.
Kayondo’s side will face lowly SKLPS at Kyambogo while Patidar are up against Tornado B at the Entebbe oval in the second round schedule.
Kayondo produced a match best 67 runs as Rwenzori Warriors defeated Nile Knights in the all-Ugandan East Africa Cricket Cup final last Sunday.
The Warriors edged their colleagues by 92 runs.
The player is expected to replicate the form exhibited in the Nairobi final game against the less experienced SKLPS outfit.
A positive result will help the third-placed Wanderers consolidate their title pursuit.
Tornado and Tornado B are the teams above Wanderers after an impressive display in the first round.
SKLPS are fighting to move away from the bottom of the table. A win will ease their relegation worries.
Kayondo will link up with the other East Africa cricket players including national team captain Davis Karashani, Hamzah Saleh, Arnold Otwani, John Illukor in search of a win.
SKLPS’ Ramesh Kimani, who has been outstanding with the ball and the bat will again spearhead the team’s challenge.
Elsewhere, Tornado B, who suffered a surprising defeat against Nile last week, are out to redeem themselves against the unpredictable Patidar side.
Tornado B face a side lying second from the bottom of the annual Uganda Cricket Association contest.
Meanwhile, the top performers in the Schools Cricket Week are expected to play their last friendly game today.
