Soroti City Cricket Club aims at redemption against SKLPS in Division two clash


Soroti City Cricket Club is gearing up for a defining clash against the Indian community-based team, SKLPS, at Buddo Cricket Club on Sunday, November 19th, 2023.

The club, now rebranded from Soroti Blazers Cricket Club to Soroti City Cricket Club, enters its eighth game with just two points in hand. With only one win from seven games, they currently anchor the bottom of the second division table.

Seeking redemption after their recent loss to Strikers Cricket Club, Soroti City is determined to clinch their second victory this weekend.

Their solitary triumph this season occurred in September, securing a resounding 178-run win against Jinja Association of Cricket Clubs (JACC). Despite this bright start, their subsequent matches have been devoid of victories.

With three games remaining in the season, Soroti City eyes a potential 8-point haul if they can secure victories in all upcoming matches, a feat that would grant them bragging rights in the city.

In contrast to the pre-COVID era featuring three divisions, the current setup with two divisions means Soroti City, at the bottom, faces no risk of relegation.

Although Soroti City enjoyed a commendable run during the T20 opener, finishing third in a group of six teams in the Championship Division, they’ve struggled to replicate that success in longer format games, hindering their hopes for promotion or a stronger finish in the league.

Their opponents this Sunday, SKLPS, currently sit in seventh place with eight points from nine games, boasting four wins and five losses.

Meanwhile, in another Division Two clash, Rounders Cricket Club is set to host Strikers Cricket Club at Jinja SS Cricket Oval tomorrow November 18th.

Strikers Cricket Club aims to maintain their winning streak following their previous weekend’s victory.

On the flip side, Rounders Cricket Club looks to bounce back from their recent loss against Tornado Bees, a match decided by the Duckworth-Lewis method, with a 96-run defeat.

Adding to the intrigue of this encounter is the battle for the best batsman position between Baby Cricket Cranes’ rising star and opening batsman, Olipa Gerald Opuna of Strikers Cricket Club, and Lubega Abdallah. Merely separated by 38 runs, Opuna eyes overtaking Abdallah in this captivating contest.
