Edo big names such as Eghosa Destiny played with an injured hand, and Selim Saliau all failed to turn up, scoring an unimpressive 50 runs all out in 14.1 overs (6 legal ball delivery).

Kaduna doubled their efforts in the second innings to attack Edo tired bowlers. The Okpe brothers, Isaac and Danladi all went for the opportunity to revenge Edo previous history of winning them at four different finals.
