Is this going to be the year Maziya finally win its maiden league title? Stranger things have happened though and you cannot be sure they will not slip up against the likes of Eagles and TC. Eagles has already beaten them and TC will be equally emboldened to show what they can do on their day. So all to play for and Maziya to lose the 6-point advantage with few matches to go before the league ends. If they cannot win the league Suzain will have a big decision to make if already not made easier by Maziya management!
