Cricket tourney continues on Sunday


The on-going 20-Overs Oriental Cricket Club (OCC) tournament continues in Blantyre on Sunday with games scheduled for two venues.

The Competition’s Coordinator, Saeed Limdabala, said they decided to feature games at two venues to ensure that they conclude the competition within three months.

“We also feel that we should use the two venues to spice up the tournament. We need a different atmosphere and setting to make the games exciting,” he said.


Following the decision, Mpingwe Purple date Mpingwe Green while Mpingwe Silver take on Mpingwe Blue. Both games will take place at Oriental Cricket Club.
