Beginning at the Rift, the toss was won by the visitors who opted to use the overcast conditions and they began rather brightly reducing the hosts to 3 for 3 wickets and that soon became 21 for 6 wickets before they were bundled out for 77. Chief destroyer was Warriors Brian Masaba who picked up 4 for 22 off 3 and a half overs.
In reply, Warriors lost an early wicket but fought bravely to down the home side winning with 3 overs and 5 wickets to spare. Arnold Otwani's aggressive 21 and Abu Seguya's unbeaten 26 had wrestled the game in favour of the Warriors before the former was cleaned out by Ibrahim Akello who finished with 2 for 16 runs, the better of the Rhinos lot with the ball.
At Nairobi Club, Coast Pekee's poor form continued when they were restricted for 95 off their 20 overs with Manoj Patel's patient 31 holding the innings steady at one end. Kongonis who were yet to win a T20 encounter,seized their opportunity through some disciplined bowling to subdue their guests. Man of the match Dominic Wesonga's 4 for 15 runs had destabilized the Pekee's batting plans.
Duncan Allan's half century from 34 balls including 7 boundaries and 2 sixes inspired Kongonis to their maiden T20 win in the competition. Josephat Ababu ensured that the home team did not have it all their way as he returned impressive figures of 3 for 11 runs including a rare maiden to check the flow of runs by the hosts in a sunny afternoon in Nairobi.
At the Gymkhana though, the action was decided on the last ball as Nairobi Buffaloes Rajesh Varsani found a rather fine edge off Duesdedit Muhumuza's delivery to help the hosts to beat Nile Knights by 5 wickets at the Nairobi Gymkhana ground. Earlier on Knights had posted 132 off their 20 overs with a contribution of an unbeaten 41 by hero turned villain Muhumuza.
The Buffaloes were always below the required rate, but skipper Collins Obuya's 55 and Irfan Karim 32 built up a quick 75 run 4th wicket partnership to bring the game within reach before they both fell in similar fashion trying to clear the long-on fence as the tension increased with every delivery bowled.
12 was needed of the final ball and the first two deliveries went for singles each to the long on boundary, before Varsani slogged one over deep mid wicket for 4, followed by 2 doubles in front of the wicket and two were needed off the last delivery and Duesdedit delivered a wider delivery and Varsani slashed hard at it and found the third man boundary to bring up his score to 21 off just 10 deliveres and send the crowd into a frenzy.
