The Wasp Team will start their first match against a struggling Pakistan Association team on Friday 16th September at Mission Road. The weather forecast for this match doesn’t look good as the ground has poor drainage. The 2nd match this weekend will be against CCC team. This will be a good contest as both teams had a number of good contests in the past season. The Wasps team will be confident to win this game as well
Women’s Team Coach Ghulam Saqlain said, “We have a good chance this year, as the players have developed their skills well over the years and we are one of the better fielding sides in the league. We back ourselves to win all the three competitions this year and we believe we have a balanced team to do so."
Sarjan team will take on Centaurs on 17th September 2016 at Mission Road, hopefully the team will get a chance to play after their first games against DLSW Spartans was washed out. The Zulu Dar Trophy this year will be shared between the two side.
