Labeled as the numero uno title contenders for the championship, Aziz Damani CC will be looking to clinch it in their maiden season in the division.
They have been impressive all season long dispatching of their opponents in such gallant fashion. Opener Saidat Kemigisha sits atop the batting log with a massive 239 runs, a massive 70 runs more than 2nd and 3rd placed Nakisuyi (Damani) and Mbabazi (Olila) both with 169 runs.
Both number 1 and 2 on the table are separated by such small margins that Olila High CC at number one better Damani at number two by a single point. However, Damani have the superior net run rate with 29.78 compared to Olila’s 18.50.
With these statistics to boast, Damani know they are outright favorites against a Pioneer side who sit 69 points behind in 3rd place.
Being labeled as the underdog usually spurs teams to prove the pundits wrong and Pioneer will be hoping to do just that. Pioneer have looked like the most organized team but the results have proved otherwise. They have won half the number of games, losing 3 and getting a no result in 2. Their results story has literally been one of ups and downs - win one, lose the next one.
Against a strong opponent like Damani, Pioneer will definitely be tested and how they stand up to the test will determine whether or not they get to have a shot at the title. A potential final clash between either Olila High CC or KICC awaits the winner from this contest at the Kyambogo cricket oval.
