Match thread: Zimbabwe vs Ireland (incl. Uganda tour match)

Post by brmtaylor.com admin »

Thought I should change this into the match thread for the first match so we've got a place to discuss the lead up to the series.

http://www.newvision.co.ug/D/8/30/654583
Uganda takes on Zimbabwe today and a Nairobi provincial side tomorrow in the other ties.
After what we did to Canada in 20 overs, surely 400+ would be on the cards from 50 overs, particularly if Masakadza can stay at the crease for 30+ overs. (unless the batsmen decide they want crease time that is)

Uganda: J. Olwenyi, D. Arinaitwe, B. Musoke, J. Sebbanja, E. Nakaana, C. Waiswa, A. Seiga, F. Nsubuga, R. Otim, L. Sematimba, R. Daniel, A. Kyobe, R. Mukasa, A. Baig

good to see that Uganda were given a match. i think Namibia should be played too. fairly local so costs can be kept to a premium, after all the ICC said Zim should play more lower ranked opposition if it wants to play tests any time soon.

Uganda really aren't all that bad. Sure they should be beaten fairly easily, but they did beat Kenya in a 20 20 last year, and they beat Bermuda on their last Kenyan tour...

New Vision's website appears to be down, Uganda Monitor has nothing yet. Will post something as soon as I can get some details.
Match is actually taking place in Kenya - Uganda have been on tour there for the past week or so.

Confirmed.

Zimbabwe 175 (Masakadza 55, Waiswa 2/40), Uganda 142/6 (31.4 overs [D/L target 125]; Kyobe 51). Uganda win by 17 runs (D/L method).
Uganda Monitor match report

Sounds like Zim weren't fielding a full-strength side, but even so - humiliation is the only word to describe this.
