Kongonis ‘A’ versus Swamibapa ‘A’ at Nairobi Club
Aga Khan S C ‘A’ versus Nbi Gymkhana ‘A’ at Aga Khan Sports Center.
Kanbis Sports Club 'B' vs. Parklands Sports Club - Rhinos at Eastleigh Sec Sch:
Ngara Sports Club vs. Swamibapa Cricket Club 'B' at Ngara S.C:
Shree Cutchi Leva Youth League vs Kongonis Cricket Club 'B' at Pindolia Academy:
Premier Club vs. Ruaraka Sports Club 'A' at Premier Club.
Stray Lions C.C 'A' versus Aga Khan Sports Center 'B' at Simba Union: Both teams surprised me by winning their matches last week, but the Aga Khan batsmen look to be in too good form to go past.
Golden XI vs. Oshwal XI at Highridge Pr Sch: Debutantes Oshwal gave Parklands Ndovu a real scare last week, but Golden XI's bowlers seem to be in good form despite their loss to Ruaraka. Another toughie, but I'll go with the more experienced side.
Nbi Jaffery Sports Club 'B' vs. Stray Lions 'B' at Nbi Jaffery S.C: Two teams that started in vastly contrasting styles. Jaffery defeated Telca fairly comfortably, while Stray Lions were annihilated by Sir Ali. Hopefully Jaffery will keep up the winning ways and make up for the withdrawal of their senior team.
Parklands Sports Club - Ndovu vs. Telca Cricket Club at Parklands S.C: Ndovua won last week despite being run close by Oshwal. They should have enough experience to account for the newcomers, Telca. It will be interesting to see how the latter's bowler, Odoyo goes. He took 3/17 last week - I wonder if he is a younger brother to Thomas (anyone who knows, please drop me a line).
Ruaraka Sports Club 'B' vs. Sir Ali Muslim Club 'B' at Ruaraka S.C: Sir Ali put on a very impressive display against Stray Lions B last week while Ruaraka beat the Golden XI thanks largely to 5/30 from Nguru, the best bowling figures from last week. It will be interesting to see how Sir Ali's prolific batsmen go against what seems to be a stong attack, but they would still be favourites to win.
