Amidst the fervor of the RCA Men’s T10 League’s opening day at the Gahanga Cricket Stadium in Kigali last Sunday, the newly promoted teams, Kutchi Sports Cricket Club and Indorwa Cricket Club, faced formidable challenges but failed to clinch victory.

In the clash between Kutchi Sports and Challengers Cricket Club, the latter’s skipper, Srinath Vardhineni, made a strategic call to bowl first after winning the toss.

This decision paid off as Kutchi Sports struggled to set a substantial target, managing only 22/5 in their allotted overs.

Challengers’ Eric Niyomugabo showcased his batting prowess, guiding his team to a convincing victory with an unbeaten 15 off just 7 balls.

Notably, Ugandan cricket Cranes player, Siraje Nsubuga, played a pivotal role for Challengers, claiming two wickets while conceding just four runs in a single over.
