Musali: We are under no pressure

A week after walking down the aisle with Isabella Abaasa, Wanderers’ skipper Denis Musali conceded his first Multiple Industries Division One 50-Over League loss to Tornado B on June 9. That painful 85-run defeat confirmed Tornado B’s fourth consecutive win and little has changed since then.
The men in green and orange have notched nine wins in as many games and are top of the pile with 51 points. But Musali, whose side has won the last two, is neither willing to lose again like they did on Heroes’ Day nor hand Tornado B a 10th victory when the two sides lock horns at Kyambogo Oval today. “We are under no pressure to deliver unlike Tornado B,” Musali, whose side is third with 33 points, told Sunday Monitor on Friday evening.
“They are favourites to win. They also want to keep their 100 percent record but if they do not hold their nerves then victory will be ours.” Musali might miss Hamza Saleh (family obligations) but has John Ilukor and in-form Arthur Ziraba (pictured), who has a total 158 runs in the last two innings, to look to for runs. But Tornado B, who could miss captain Jeremy Kibuukamusoke (finger injury), could have Kenyan international David Obuya in their ranks. “Of course we are under pressure from the chasing pack. But we will fight to the end,” said Tornado B wicket-keeper Nicholas Kebba.
