KICC are making amends on their campaign following a poor start in the top tier of the Jazz Safari National Men’s League

Two early losses against Challengers and Ceylon Lions had signaled a fall from title contenders to just competitors.

Fast forward, they have bounced back to save face with a remarkable 140 runs win against top flight debutants Premier yesterday at Lugogo oval.

Wassim Butt was in top drawer performance scoring an undefeated half century of 74 from 79 balls as KICC moved the board to 286 in their 50 allotted overs in spite of Utsav Shah claiming 3 wickets in what was a free scoring KICC innings.

Rajesh Nair top scored for the chasing pack scoring a near half ton of 44  from 45 balls but his side were all out for 146.

Frank Nsubuga and Irfan Afridi combined for 3 wickets apiece as KICC registered their first win of the season.

At Kyambogo, man of the match Frank Akankwasa scored a half century of 54 off 43 balls and claimed 2 wickets as Strikers went cruising past Ceylon Lions. Zephania Arinaitwe’s 4 wickets ensured Ceylon Lions were all out for 157 in the first innings of the game.

In division two, Hitesh Harai was key as SKLPS came up big against Nile by 125 runs. He scored a game best half century of 51 from 69 balls.

At the Jinja oval Denis Musali’s undefeated century of 115 from 141 balls was not enough to save Wanderers in a game of nerves that Avengers won by 2 runs. In the end however, Musali will definitely celebrate what is obviously a rare return in his career.

Meanwhile Cyrus Kakuru and Brian Adriko efforts with the bat propelled Tornado to a comfortable 158 runs win over Patidar at Budo. The former knocked a half century of 61 off 56 balls as the latter had a half century of  52 from 70 balls.
