Rwanda: Ndayisaba Guides Dugout to Crushing Win

Dugout have one foot in the Sulfo League final after Saturday's crashing win over rivals Impala Titans at Kicukiro cricket grounds.

Despite Eric Dusingizimana's patient knock of 77, it was Freddy Ndayisaba's bowling performance that laid the platform for victory.

The fast bowler bowled with great pace and aggression to finish off with four for 14 runs in his eight overs; by far the best bowling figures on the day.

Earlier, Dusingizimana had played his part with his second half century of the tournament while Joshua Mwanja also weighed in with a well crafted 47 to guide Dugout to 199 in the rain-hit match which had to be reduced to 37 overs.

In reply, Impala were dismissed for 111 with Romeo Ngabo (41) top scoring. Fiston Nsengiyumva, Eric Ndangamyambi and Eric Niyomugabo were the only other players in double figures.

Impala now need to win their next fixture against Challengers to keep their hopes of reaching the final alive.

Last year, the youngster-dominated side reached the final only to lose to the now defunct Right Guards.

Kigali Cricket Club (KCC) are still the record champions with four titles.
