KAMPALA- Tornado Bee skipper Jeremy Kibuukamusoke set out a target to win their remaining five matches in pursuit of a fifth successive Jazz Safari National Cricket League crown.
So far so good as the four-time champions have won two on the trot with centuries from Abdallah Lubega and Deus Muhumuza in victories over Patidar Samaj and Nile. Those bonus point wins have seen Tornado Bee surge from fourth to third on 51 points from 11 matches, nine behind leaders Kutchi Tigers, who have played two more.
To be realistic, the title is between second-placed Aziz Damani, who have 55 points in 11 outings, and Tornado Bee.
Tornado Bee won’t rest until they clinch it. Their quest will face a stern test from Challengers when the two 2016 contenders meet at the lakeside oval in a Entebbe today. Challengers lost their plot for the title over a month ago but Ivan Thawithemwira and Co. itch to avenge Tornado Bee’s ‘boardroom title’ last season on the field.
It could be a day where Cricket Cranes’ batsmen Arthur Kyobe, Irfan Afridi and Hamu Kayondo decide to remind the fraternity of their qualities despite their current woeful and forgettable form.
