WHEN these two sides met three months ago, the result was treated as a huge upset but Sunday at Kyambogo, Wanderers proved their eight-wicket Premier league win over Tornado B on June 14 was no fluke.

Denis Musaali’s young troops contrived to dispatch Tornado B by the same margin and in fact, they did with greater ease this time. Denis Mutyaba laid the foundation for the Wanderers, ripping through Tornado B’s batting attack to take 5/28.

Captain Jeremy Kibuuka Musoke was the pick of Tornado B’s batting, scoring an unbeaten – if paltry – 28 runs. Nicholas Kebba was the other notable contributor with 24 but with such low individual returns, Tornado B was always in danger of bowing out with a low total. And so it was, they were dismissed for 117 in 40.1 overs.

With victory in sight, the Wanderers made no mistake once the chase got underway. Ali Haider scored 41 off 42 balls while Abu Seguya topped the charts with an unbeaten 55 to lead Wanderers home and dry in 17.2 overs.

The win took the second-placed Wanderers to within three points of Tornado, who lead the standings with 25 points and have a game in hand on Musaali’s team.

Defeat sent Tornado B, who have won two of seven matches this season, to the bottom of the pile. This year, last position has belonged almost exclusively to Rounders but Michael Kintu’s side climbed to fifth place after defeating ACC by 36 runs at Lugogo.
