Right Guards have promised to deliver when they take on Challengers in the second semi-finals of the 2013 Zaaffran & Blueberry T20 cricket league tomorrow at the Kicukiro oval with the winner facing the winner of the first semi final between Kerala Hunters and Indorwa.

Having won all their games in the preliminaries, Right Guards and Karala Hunters are certainly the teams to watch in the last four clashes.

“I have faith in my team and I am confident we will win. This confidence comes from the fact that the teams have played against each other three times this year and Right Guards has won convincingly on those occasions,” said the Right Guards’ captain Eric Dusingizimana.

His opposite number Srinath Vardhineni of Challengers admitted, “Right Guards have been our only tormentor this year but we hope to reverse the trend. Once we break the partnership between Eric Dusingizimana and Joshua Mwanja, then we will have a big chance.”

In the first semi-final clash, Indorwa, the strongest side on paper, will have to go past a spirited Kerala Hunters as they chase for their maiden trophy this year.

“We didn’t perform well in the previous tournaments but now that we have reached the semis we want to go all the way,” said Indorwa star player Romesh Thakkar.

Indorwa will be hoping to ride on the outstanding fast bowler Eric Dusabemungu to damage the Kerala batsmen. “Our target is to frustrate Dusabemungu by denying him a wicket, and then get as many runs from the other bowlers,” said Kerala Hunters batsman Pravith Presanaraj.
