Brian Masaba’s Aziz Damani Scorpions have been declared winners of the inaugural T20 Elite League tournament organized by the Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) at the Lugogo cricket oval.
The Final against Royal Varsani Bucks wasn’t played due to heavy down pour which flooded the pitch and the organizers decided to hand the award to Aziz Damani Scorpions who were leading a three team log.
Captain Brian Masaba put up a maiden performance, garnering eight points in the tournament to help his side finish top.
“The tournament has been competitive although we had some games which were affected at the end by rainfall, we are happy to get silver ware and this has been a stepping stone for hope of a possible return of cricket in the short run,” said Masaba.
The Royal Varsani Bucks finished second by one point below the winner and Metro Challengers Mambas finishing third by three points less.
Aziz Darmani Scorpions’ Wasim Butt won two individuals accolades which include Man of Series and the Best Bats man and and was presented with Ugx. 500,000 and Ugx. 300,000 for the respective awards.
Royal Bucks’ Siraje Nsubuga was awarded the best bowler of the tournament and Jonathan Kizza the best fielder, while Stephen Wabwose was the best wicket keeper of the tournament.
The winners Damani scorpions received a cash prize of Ugx. 3m from the Organizers, while the best 14 players received Hisense mobile phones.
The T20 Elite Tournament’s closing ceremony was graced by the UCA chairman, Bashir Badu Ansasira.
