Aziz Damani smacked the life out of Kutchi Tigers at the Lugogo Cricket Oval today in the Men’s 50 Over League, while Wanderers Cricket Club survived a daring Tornado Bee to level points with Challengers Cricket Club at 10.
Damani’s Alpesh Ramjani and Simon Ssesazi both set up centuries -160 and 148 respectively- to ease their side past Tigers with a feat the latter couldn’t match up, 403/6.
Despite hosting a big crowd on Friday, Lugogo was fit for play when Damani picked up the big win to continue making the charge to the top of the table.
In the other game, Tornado Bee had Wanderers on the chopping board at 33/4 but a fourth wicket partnership worth 102 between Davis Karashani (100) and Denis Musali (26) dashed their hopes as Wanderers ran out winners to keep second place and dare to upset Challengers who are table leaders.
