  2. Deus Muhumuza

  1. Irfan Afridi Mohammed
  2. Davis Karashani
  3. Falak Sher

The last time the two teams faced each other, K.I.C.C took the day winning by 29 runs, a score that the Bees will look to settle once and for all at the Lugogo cricket oval. The two teams have shared everything from similar points, position as well their hot and cold form throughout the season and K.I.C.C in particular, will want to finish on a high at Lugogo this Saturday.

Having won their previous fixture against the Strikers, K.I.C.C will look to put on an even better show against the Tornado Bees, as their draw the curtains on their season. K.I.C.C secured a 33 run victory over the youthful Strikers with their bowling display that saw the on course lads lose the innings after man of the match Falak Sher (4/27) destabilized the steady mid order, bringing the wickets down and quick together with Davis Karashani (2/41) and Irfan Afridi (2/33).

The Bees who two weeks ago suffered a 79 runs loss to the Challengers in a fixture that saw them face the on form side without all-rounders Deus Muhumuza and Roger Mukasa. They will be hoping for a turn around with the Cricket Cranes duo now back in action as well as Abdulai Lubega. Even the effort from Akbar Baig (34 off 73) and newly-wed Nicholas Kebba (28 off 49) were unfortunately inadequate against the on form bowlers.

Tornado Bee will be facing a strong bowling attack in K.I.C.C from the likes of Davis, Irfan, Falak Sher as well as Frank Nsubuga who have also recently proved challenging their batting opponents, and will look to capitalize on the now present all-rounders to put up the required resistance. While K.I.C.C in turn will hope to tighten the screws on their fielding, something that the Strikers used to their advantage as well as support their bowlers with a good batting performance to seal their season in style.
