Kenya NPCA T20: Teams face off in NPCA playoffs for shot at championship title


The Nairobi Provincial Cricket Association (NPCA) Twenty20 Super Division Top Four playoffs are set to kick off with thrilling matchups as teams gear up for intense battles on the cricket field.

In the much-anticipated Eliminator playoff, Kanbis A will face off against Swamibapa A in a clash that promises to reignite their fierce rivalry. Kanbis A, led by skipper Dhiren Gondaria, exudes confidence despite finishing fourth in the league standings.

With the return of Rakep Patel from injury, Kanbis A aims to unleash their full potential against their archrivals Swamis.

Meanwhile, in Qualifier 1, SCLPS YL A will lock horns with Stray Lions A in what is expected to be a closely contested match.

Stray Lions Chairman Thota Sreenivas emphasized that his team is not underestimating SCLPS YL A, despite their second-place finish behind Cutch Leva in the league standings. With both teams eager to secure a spot in the final, the stage is set for an enthralling showdown.

The playoffs, initially scheduled for last Sunday at Sikh Union, were rescheduled to Saturday due to an unplayable square, adding to the anticipation surrounding the matchups.

The winner of Qualifier 1 will earn direct qualification to the final, while the loser will have a second chance to advance by facing the winner of the Eliminator.

Swamibapa A enters the playoffs as the defending champions, having clinched the T20 championship last season. However, SCLPS A, who topped the league standings with 24 points, poses a formidable challenge after displacing longtime leaders Stray Lions to second place.

As the teams prepare to battle it out on the cricket field, fans can expect a spectacle of skill, determination, and sportsmanship in the quest for T20 glory in the Nairobi cricket scene.

With each team eyeing victory and the ultimate prize, the playoffs promise to deliver exhilarating cricket action and memorable moments for players and spectators alike.
