NPCA 50 Over League week 3 Preview

It will be an interesting week in the Super Division with two of the title holders facing off when Swamibapa 'A' host long time rivals Kanbis 'A'. Both teams are in fine form and will be looking to put an early season dint in their opponens title hopes. Whoever wins this game will sit clear at the top as Stray Lions 'A' are not scheduled to play this weekend, their match from this round vs Simba Union 'A' not being played until the 6th of September. Thomas Odoyo's Telca will look to break into the top four with a win over Kanbis 'B'.

In Division 1 the game of the round will be at Ngara who host early leaders Premier Club. A home win will bring Ngara level on points with Premier, but should the visitors dominate, they will consolidate their lead at the top of the table. If Premier stumble, both Kongonis Development and Ruaraka have games they should win which could keep the battle wide open.

Stray Lions 'B' come up against a stiff challenge to maintain their unbeaten start to the season as they meet Simba Union 'B'. Their early challengers for top spot, will probably have little trouble also making it three from three even if their opponents, Qutbis actually show up. Full fixture list to follow shortly.

On an individual basis, the early runners for the highest season score or top figures in their respective disciplines are as follows:
