In equal measure, Zephania Arinaitwe offered a comfort blanket to his teammates and at the same time, a nightmare for Kutchi Tigers' bowlers.
 
Undefeated at a half-ton of 83 from 71 balls, He was the difference in Challengers' 9 wickets win over Kutchi Tigers Sunday at Entebbe oval.
 
His form may have dispelled the idea that his game had slumped. On a largely tricky oval, it has since become notorious for not being favorable to batsmen. Arinaitwe stood out in Challengers’ chase.
 
Arinaitwe’s returns off the bat took him up the batting charts to number 4 on a total of 246 runs from as many games for the youngster.
 
Opener Hamu Kayondo weighed in with 25 runs off 26 balls not out. The sallying batsman has displayed a high level of consistency this season for Challengers.
 
He will nonetheless need to keep up with this kind of performance as he looks ahead into the ICC Challenge Cup in Hong Kong November later this year.
 
Earlier in the first innings, Gerald Mubiru had merrily cut through Kutchi Tigers’ batting order picking 3 wickets as the latter were all out for 123.
 
Bharat Ghodedra, a match-winner in the previous game was restricted to just 23 from 41 balls before he was out caught by David Wabwire.
