Henry Ssenyondo who has been Challengers go to man for the previous 2 seasons has decided to join champions Damani for the new season. Ssenyondo hard formed a dangerous partnership with Irfan Afridi for Challengers and between them they picked over 50 wickets last season.

The Left arm orthodox spinner will strengthen a rich bowling line up that was only missing an ex factor when the going gets tough.  Coach Steve Tikolo has been the frontline spinner for the side and  with the signing of Henry they got a reliable bowler who can dry up runs as well as pick wickets.

Ssenyondo who was not shy to show his frustrations on the field with Challengers in a season that went wrong for them in the 50 over format finishing a lowly 5th on the log. His appointment as the Captain for the 50 over format has not been enough to persuade him to stay.

He was a winner with Challengers helping them win back to back t20 titles while earning the league MVP title as well as the Male Cricketer of Year gong awarded by USPA in the 2016 season.

Damani who won the league at the 1st time of asking will be looking at defending their league title this year and also challenge for the t20 crown that eluded them last season after losing to Challengers in the semifinals.

Henry Ssenyondo joins a side loaded with alot of experience in Coach Steve Tikolo, Benjamin Musoke, Emmanuel Isaneez and National Team Vice Captain Brian Masaba.
