UCA National Men’s League
Kutchi Tigers 266 Tornado 51/7 (Kutchi Tigers win by 157 runs D/L method)
Jinja SS 117/7 ACC 118/4 (ACC win by 6 wickets)
Buddo 101 Wanderers 102/6 (Wanderers win by 4 wickets)
Earlier this season, one school of thought expressed a prevailing trait of local batsmen misfiring.
The argument maintained that with scores reducing drastically, it affects the competitive nature of the national men’s league.
Nonetheless, the change in weather patterns has greatly affected how teams play, not to mention a big number of games washed out.
Sunday presented a unique case at the Kyambogo Oval where Bharat Ghodedra and Kerai Chinta worked the magic in Kutchi Tigers’ 157 run win over Tornado.
Ghodera’s man of the match performance was crucial, scoring 64 runs from 57 balls in the win. Teammate Chinta caught the eye as well as he hit 60 runs from 71 balls.
Tornado’s Allan Sembatya impressed with the ball although his 4 wicket haul could not save his side’s misfiring batsmen who were restricted to just 51 runs.
Bowler Kanti Vekaria’s duels with Tornado’s batsmen earned him 4 wickets in a game Kutchi Tigers controlled.
In Division Two, Africa Cricket Club’s duo of Jamil Mayengo and David Mwesigwa claimed 2 wickets apiece as ACC cruised past Jinja SS.
