Trevor Garwe

Log leaders Alliance Health Eagles women’s team will be hoping to complete a double over Bulawayo based side Tuskers and maintain a perfect record when they clash in a Fifty50 Challenge at Sunrise Sports Club on Saturday.

Alliance Health Eagles top the standings after three rounds of matches with 14 points four ahead of Midwest Rhinos in second while Tuskers are third with five points.

Mountaineers remain winless and anchor the standings.

“I think we played well against them in the first game but they are areas we need to improve on and I’m sure we are going to have a good game. Playing Tuskers is always a challenge but we are hopeful that we are going to win,” Eagles coach Trevor Garwe said.

In the first meeting between the two teams Eagles won by 26 runs after posting a 145 total and Tuskers could only manage 119 in the chase.

Rhinos will be looking to put pressure on the log leaders when they take on winless Mountaineers at Old Hararians.

Garwe also hailed the competition for offering a platform for upcoming players.

“This is a good competition for our ladies because as coaches we get to watch new and upcoming players. So far we have seen a 15-year old leg spinner in Olinda Chare who took 4 wickets in her debut match and we hope to see more as the tournament goes,” he said.

Chare took 4 for 21 against Tuskers.
