The teams participating this year include some familiar names like defending champions Challengers Cricket Club, who will look to capture another title after winning the RCA T20 Cup earlier this year.
IPRC Kigali CC, the reigning Rwanda T10 champions, will also be hungry to add a 50-over title to their cabinet.
Other contenders include Kigali Cricket Club, always a threat with their strong pace bowling attack. Right Guards Cricket Club and newcomers Telugu Royals Cricket Club and Zonic Tigers Cricket Club round out the competing sides.
Teams will play 15 matches against each other in a single round-robin. This format really rewards consistent performance over the course of the long season.
After all league matches, the team finishing at the top will be crowned RCA 50 Over Premier League 2023 Champions.
