Aziz Damani, Kutchi Tigers face off at the Lakeside Oval

Henry Ssenyondo and Roger Mukasa

Kutchi Tigers are the only side that gave double winners Aziz Damani a bloody nose last season nearly breaking their unbeaten run but since then, alot of water has gone under the bridge.

Kutchi Tigers are without their talismen Dinesh Nakrani and Ronak Patel while Damani has added more steel to their batting with the acquisition of the prolific Roger Mukasa.

Roger Mukasa is already showing why Damani paid alot of money for his services he has scored three half centuries in four innings. He tore Patidar last weekend in Lugogo and he will the go to player for Damani when they face the the Tigers in Entebbe.

Kutchi Tigers lie just out of the playoff spots in 5th position and will be looking for a win to atleast keep Patidar who are in 4th place in sight. Damani on the other hand are hot on the heals of table topping KICC and if they win all their remaining games they will claim top spot.

In the other Division 1 T20 games, winless Tornado Bee takes on Patidar in Kyambogo.

Patidar might have lost to Damani last weekend but they were only outclassed not outplayed.

The youthful Patidar side are favourites against the four-time league champions Tornado Bee who have never prioritized T20 cricket.

However, they will need to regroup before the 50-over league as some of their performances have been very worrying for a side that two years ago was a force in the local league.
