KAMPALA- Tornado will be seeking to regain their winning formula when they host ACC in the inaugural UCA 30-Over League at Kyambogo Oval today.
Tornado’s six-match unbeaten run was clipped by Wanderers last weekend at Entebbe Oval when they lost by seven wickets to their arch rivals.
The loss left a bitter taste as it was their second loss to the same outfit but against ACC and in another competition they will be seeking to make amends.
“We need to show our class against ACC,” said stand-in skipper Grace Mutyagaba.
“Although we are depleted with some of our stars on national duty in South Africa, ACC are in Division II and we can topple them.”
Tornado might also not be with former national team wicket keeper and U-19 coach Davis Turinawe who could be in Nairobi for his brother Bernes Ankunda’s wife burial.
ACC are almost certain of a place in the last four of the six-team tournament as they defeated Kampala Institute of Cricket Clubs by 29 runs in the opening game of the tournament.
