The Nairobi Provincial Cricket Association (NPCA) Invitational T20 Cricket tournament that has been on for the past six weeks ends this weekend.

Semi Finals will precede the finale Saturday in juicy encounters across all the divisions. 

However all eyes will be on the Super Division contests at Nairobi Gymkhana and Jamhuri Grounds which will play host to the two penultimate stage matches.

At Forest Road, bigwigs and favourites Kanbis A will be hosting tournament surprise package Sir Ali Muslim Club. 

The former who boast 16 domestic titles will rely on the firepower of players like Dhiren Gondaria, Rakep Patel and Nelson Odhiambo to continue with their impressive streak in this Championship. 

Kanbis Sports Club has lost once and currently sits second in standings behind Swamibapa.

Swami on their part has a date with another fast-improved side in the frame of Ruaraka Sports Club. 

On paper the former Champions look the best bet but third placed Ruaraka are fearless and have caused big upsets on the way. 

The winners of both ties will square out in the finals match at Sikh Union Grounds.

The season proper is still unclear but the 10 teams that took part have certainly had solid preparations with this tournament. With the recent player movement, clubs like Nairobi Kongonis and Sir Ali Muslim have stepped up.

Meanwhile in the Division One Championship, Shree Cutchi Leva meets GI Unicorns at Eastleigh Grounds today afternoon while the other semi pits Kanbis B on against Nairobi Gymkhana at Park Road.
