Wanderers take on KICC while Damani powered Masaka SS visit JACC

KICC Ladies

Wanderers will be taking on a KICC side full of Kenyan internationals in their second league game of the season and the first for the latter.

Wanderers managed to defeat defending champions Tornado B by 100 runs last Saturday at the lakeside oval in Entebbe and will be looking to pick up their second win at the same ground.

Janet Mbabazi put in a Lady of the Match performance last Saturday against Tornado B and she is confident they will be able to win on Saturday

We know they are going to bring Kenyans. The plan is to use our strength which is the bowl. If we can bowl well and and take our chances then we are good to go.  As for the bat, if we are patient enough in between wickets, I think we can set a score that we can defend with our bowling.

KICC relied heavily on their Kenyan contingent during the T20 league and there is little sign of the same changing during the longer format.

However, Franklin Najjumba has turned back the hands of time as she was in fine form for team Uganda as they overcame Zimbabwe to be crowned African Champions and together with Mary Nanderenge will be key for KICC, if they want to beat the drop.

Division 1 has 6 very competitive teams and the 50 over league being a promotion/relegation league all teams will be looking at gaining maximum points every weekend.

The winner after the round robin will be crowned champion while the last team will be relegated.

In Division 2, runner away leaders Masaka SS will be taking on JACC in Jinja. The Masaka based team is confident after they got Aziz Damani as their main sponsor cutting ties with previous sponsors Tornado.

Yusuf Nanga and his girls are in prime position to get promoted to Division 1 and will need to just make sure they don’t undo the good work they did in round one.

In the other Division 2 game, home side Ndejje SS take on fellow stragglers Charity in Ndejje. The home side is backed by Premier money and they are hoping they will be victorious over an in balanced Charity side.

Jonathan Ssebanja and his Charity ladies have had a bit part season but its expected for a team that is transition.
