16 Teams Confirmed For Nakuru 6-a-side

The Jagir Singh Memorial six-a-side cricket festival 2006 draw has been released with 16 teams confirmed participating. The event will be held in Nakuru at the Rift Valley Sports Club on the weekend of June 3rd and 4th. As well as the regular teams from Nairobi, several upcountry teams are listed to play that we have not had the opportunity to hear about recently, so great to see such a fantastic turn out for this event. Structured as a knockout tournament, the first two rounds will be played on the Saturday, then the semis and final on the Sunday. Tournament favourites would probably be Kanbis A and Swamibapa A who are on opposite sides of the draw, so one would expect these two to meet in the final. Of the two, Kanbis have arguably the tougher route to the final with possible matches against Nairobi Jaffery in the semis if they get past Gymkhana or Kongonis in the Quarters. Swamibapa will have some unknowns to face when they come up against the winners of the all-school clash between Greensteds and St. Andrew's Turi in the second round.
