Olila Cricket Club Vs Wanderers
Olila Cricket Club made a massive roar across the Div 1 table after thumping Wanderers cricket club on Saturday at Kyambogo cricket oval by 222 Runs.
Everything was in place for the game of cricket and Olila won the toss and chose to bat. The score on board justified the decision to bat first, opener Damalie Busingye anchored the innings with a massive 86 with contributions from Janet Mbabazi (67) and Proscovia Alako (42) helping the favorites Olila post a commanding 294.
Wanderers Cricket Club didn’t bother in the chase bundled out for only 72, Mary Akwi (14) and Shakira Sadick (11) did put up some resistance but it was a case of delaying Olila’s victory. Kevin Amuge (3/13) and Proscovia Alako (2/14) were the pick of the bowlers for Olila with their neat tidy lines. Both sides have extreme ambitions with Wanderers fighting for their lives to stay in the top flight while Olila are destined to win the league as long as they can take care of their business.

KICC VS Jinja SSS
The pick of the weekend games in the ladies league as both KICC and Jinja SSS gave fans value for money as they watched an all through action packed game of cricket.
KICC won the toss and chose to field first a decision that they would later rue as Jinja SSS senior players Rita Musamali (78) and Stephanie Nampiina (29) showed picking the boundary off the bad and rotating the strike as much as they could. Their foundation helped their side set a target of 185, Kenyan imports Vanessa Adhiambo (4/42) Esther Wangare (2/23) were the pick of the bowlers for KICC.
In the chase KICC needed to be mature in their approach as Jinja SSS boost of one of the best bowling attacks in the league. Like in the Jinja SSS innings the senior players took charge with Vanessa Adhiambo (38), Mary Nanderenga (38), Franklyn Najjumba (33) balls saw KICC walk away with match points despite bowling resistance from Claire Mushakamba (2/25), Patricia Ajalo (2/30).
