The showdown unfolded today, March 29th, 2024, at the prestigious Hilton Cricket Ground, spotlighting outstanding displays from Group B competitors.

Mukono Kings clinched a resounding victory, dominating their adversaries by a formidable margin of 133 runs.

Right from the outset, Mukono Kings established supremacy with a formidable batting spectacle, amassing a formidable total of 162 runs while losing only four wickets within their allotted 20 overs.

Spearheaded by the dynamic batting display of Nalumansi Resty, who amassed an impressive 37 runs, the team exhibited resilience and precision at the crease.

Supported by stellar contributions from Nampaamu Jackline and Nalutaaya Christine, Mukono Kings erected an imposing target, leaving Hilton High School with a daunting task to surmount.

Hilton High School, tasked with chasing down Mukono Kings’ imposing total, encountered a formidable challenge from the get-go.

The relentless onslaught from the bowling attack, coupled with stringent fielding, stifled Hilton High School’s attempts to gather momentum throughout their innings.
While the laurels of victory undoubtedly adorn Mukono Kings, commendation is due to both sides for their spirited demonstration of sportsmanship and unwavering commitment to the game.

Each player showcased their talent and dedication, contributing to an enthralling contest that captivated spectators.
