This impressive display led to an 88-run victory for Wanderers, as Tornado Bees struggled, posting a meager 39 all-out in 14.2 overs.

The afternoon encounter saw Wanderers Cricket Club setting 98/3 in 18 overs after Jinja SS won the toss and elected to bowl first. Jinja SS, in response, managed only 58/9 in 18 overs, facing a 40-run defeat against the Wanderers.
