Shs10m and Shs7.5m await the winners and runners up of the contest respectively and unlike before the event is played in 16b overs until up to the quarter finals, then the semis and final will be 20 overs.

Expect the 2016 edition of the Aziz Damani and KBSC Night Cricket tournament to be bigger than the previous edition.

And there is an obvious reason to that; the one month tournament that started on Saturday has incorporated Women cricketers and the Abagurusi into the contest, expanding the list of teams to 20, with a total of 50 games lined up.

“We decided to include Abagurusi and the Women because we feel they have a stake in local cricket and of course they still will draw their following to Lugogo and watch games and hence the more numbers, the more entertaining it gets” said Sajiv Patel, KBSC chief during the launch of the tournament over the weekend at Lugogo.

Shs10m and Shs7.5m await the winners and runners up of the contest respectively and unlike before the event is played in 16b overs until up to the quarter finals, then the semis and final will be 20 overs.

The Indian dorminated contest will at least have two local players on each franchised team as a means of promoting Ugandan cricket.

Aziz Damani are the defending Champions having won the trophy back in 2015 after beating Pak Stallions.

Silva Kotti, the Aziz Darmani manager is confident they are ready to defend the title .
