Rwanda: Indorwa Keep Their Title Hopes Alive

INDORWA kept their title hopes alive by winning their second match against Impala Titans last Sunday in the second round of Sulfo Cricket League.

Indorwa batted first and lost early wickets due to tight bowling from Don de Dieu Mugisha, who took three wickets for 24 runs.

At one stage Indorwa was struggling at 89 for five in 23 overs, and in came Lalith Panjwani, who scored a match winning innings of 89 runs, which included 11 boundaries.

The right handed batsman played excellent shots all over the ground and he was ably supported by the national team all-rounder Eric Dusabemungu, who scored 29 runs. Indorwa reached a formidable total of 226 All Out in 47 overs.

Impala Titans started slowly, but picked up the run chase after the rising young star Janvier Cyubahiro started playing wonderful strokes, the pick being the huge six over mid-wicket.

The youngster scored 63 runs and Impala Titans captain Julius Mbaraga scored a fighting 43 runs, he was caught and bowled by a fabulous return catch by Panjwani, but the partnership was not enough for Impala Titans to win the match and they were bowled out for 163 runs.

Indorwa captain Mihir Solanki was the pick of the bowlers with a haul of four wickets for 23 runs.

Indorwa has one more match to go, while Challengers will be playing Dugout this Sunday.

Imapala Titans end their Sulfo League campaign with three loses in a row and other three teams still have chances to reach the finals.
