Kabwe Stars did not have the best of opening days at the Zambia T10 League as they lost both their matches against Blitz and Heats by 8 wickets and 24 runs respectively. The team came back stronger the next day to beat Kings by 6 wickets and Heats by 5 wickets.
Kabwe Stars' batting line-up buckled under the pressure if the opening match and were skittled out for just 64 from their 10 overs. Gladson Kandela (2-0-6-1) and Tausif Panchibaya (2-0-13-1) did try their best, but the score was simply un-defendable.
Isaac Mwaba, with 41 off 19 balls, was their top scorer in the second game. Tapson Nyirongo 2-0-13-0 and Gladson Kandela (2-0-16-1) were their leading bowlers.
Stars' resurgence was down to the batting efforts from Ashraf Lulat (24 off 12 balls), Godfrey Kandela (34 off 23 balls not out) and Mohammade Baidu (20 off 8 balls) in the third match. Mohsin Agaz (2-0-11-1) and James Zimba (1-0-4-0) starred with the ball.
Top performances from Lulat (20 off 13 balls), Agaz (14 off 8 not out), Gladson Kandela (2-0-8-3) and Tausif Panchibaya (2-0-4-3) then saw the team home comfortably in their last match.
Ndola Blitz have been the most successful team of the Zambia T10 League and started with a hat-trick of wins. Blitz beat Stars by 8 wickets, Kings by 4 wickets and Heats by 9 wickets. However, they suffered a completely one-sided defeat in their last match of the last weekend against Kings by 10 wickets.
Fantastic bowling effort from James Green (2-0-8-0), Aiden Hawksworth (2-0-10-2), Richard Parker (2-0-16-2) and Craig Stow (2-0-10-2) meant that Connor Fletcher (24 off 11 balls) and Calion Harris (29 off 24 balls) did not have to work too hard to achieve the win.
Craig Stow (2-0-14-1), Oliver Snart (1-0-3-0) and James Green (2-0-14-1) shone yet again. But after the batting have suffered an initial collapse, Green lead the team's fightback with 41 off 15 balls.

Fletcher (24 off 14 balls) and Green (30 off 18 balls) were their leading batters in the last game but they couldn't put enough runs on the board. Chetan Reddy (2-0-11-0) tried his best, but the team suffered their first defeat of the competition.
