THE all-Tornado clash on Sunday at Lugogo is a perfect opener for the 2014 Multiple Industries Division 1 Cricket League in many ways. 

For one, the two teams share a curious relationship – part related, part rivals. 

Above all, though, this match could very well be the clash of the main contenders for the title. Tornado B are arguably the main contenders after waltzing through last season with a perfect record. 

Having strengthened rather than weakened in the offseason, Tornado B are being tipped by many to win it all again despite coming in unstuck against the Challengers in the semi-finals of the just concluded T20 national championship. 

For their part, Tornado are well set to make a title charge for the umpteenth time. Frank Nsubuga’s charges are always in the title frame and the 2012 champions did not miss by much last year. 

Their mix of talent and experience is the perfect blend to win the highly tactical 50/50 overs competition. Speaking of title contenders, the aptly-named Challengers are not to be overlooked. 

The reigning T20 champions open their charge against the Wanderers at Kyambogo and Mohamed Vaheed’s club want to make it a double. 

“We are going to win it,” warned Challengers patron Vaheed. “I am ready to spend everything for us to win. 

Nile take on Charity at Entebbe in a clash of two potential dark horses.
