After being on break for a month, the Southern Region Inter-Cricket League returns on Sunday with four fixtures lined up.
At Mpingwe Sports Club, Anchor Industry sponsored side, MSC Silver, will take on Mpingwe Blue while Mpingwe Purple will entertain Mpingwe Green.
On the same day, Oriental Country Club (OCC) will accommodate two games. OCC will meet MSC Grey while Mpingwe Gold will clash with Black.
A member of the leagues organising committee, Saeed Limdawala said it was necessary for the league to observe the “holy month of Ramadan.”
“We had to go on break to help Muslim cricket players to reflect on their spirituality. The break gave us time to exercise spiritually,” he said.
The league went on break on June 18 as Muslim community observed Ramadan.
Meanwhile, Limdawala said they expected tough battle as the teams return to action.
“Every team is hungry for success and we expect to watch entertaining and competitive matches. Every team wants to win the league,” he said.
Limdawala said winning teams would receive medals and no prize money at the end of the Twenty-20 competition.
“We are doing this to allow players and teams to improve their skills. We should not aim for money. The spirit of fairness and improving one’s game matters. Winning medals is also a motivating factor because the winners will have something to put on their shelf,” he said.
