After a fast paced, bouncy and at times ton hitting season last year in which Mombasa Sports Club emerged overall winners in all forms of the game (40 over league, Zahra T20 and 6 aside tournaments), we at Coast Cricket are ready for another Year of more thrills and perils at the stumps with 8 teams looking at a full cricketing calendar this year.
Amongst the new comers, Cutchi Leva will be hard on the heels of Mombasa Jaffery and Mombasa Sports Club as the other teams get their acts together to make this year much more competitive than the yester years.
We will begin the calendar year this weekend with a 30 over knockout whose and thereafter, the top four will contend for the cup in the second round with an eliminator and two semis and a final. Thereafter, in the middle of June, the 50 over knockout will be played where teams will play to win as those “Knocked out” will stay KNOCKED OUT!
After the typical month of Fasting for our Muslim brothers, the month of August will see two simultaneous tourneys in the shape of the 40-Over league and a Saturday fixture for festive season and beyond. Once again, the focus shifts on our patrons
The supporters without whom our youths would not have the opportunity to stay fit and build healthy minds as they exercise skill, strength and tact to become the best of the best.
Therefore as we request you all to come forward and support in every capacity possible we also wish to thank the Clubs, The Sponsors – Coast Bus (MSA) LEADING ALWAYS Mombasainfo.com KEEPING US IN THE LOOP umpires Association, Cricket Kenya, the management bodies and ground support staff of every club and most importantly, the people who bring the news to you, Coast Week, Standard, The Star, Nation and ESPN Cricinfo for promoting the local talent.
Once again, we remind one and all that more than the financial support which itself is import unification of different people and the fitness of the youth that is the focal point of all sporting activities whose backbone is the presence of spectators and supporters who make a sport worth playing with the zeal and spirit required. The supporters are the ones who make Cricket A GENTLEMAN’S GAME.
