Uganda Tour of Zimbabwe

Post by jaybro » Wed Oct 30, 2019 6:53 am

Looks as though Uganda are touring Zimbabwe for Five 50 over matches against a variety of Zimbabwean sides, Takashinga will be hosting the Ugandans.

Uganda Cricket has named 16 players that will travel to Zimbabwe for a build-up tour ahead of the World Challenge League.

The tour will be used to assess the quality within the side before a final 14 will be selected for the World Challenge League due in Oman from 1-12 December.

The training squad of 12 players will form the core of the touring with four other players added. Dinesh Nakrani and Ronak Patel were added to the side with left-arm pace bowler Jonathan Ssembanja and Bilal Hassan also been given a chance to sneak into the final 14.


The team will play five ODIs against select sides in Zimbabwe, the touring party will be hosted by Takashinga Cricket Club who have a great relationship with Uganda Cricket.

Steve Tikolo and his technical team will use the trip to assess the strength of the side. Roger Mukasa has looked loose in the trial games and without the captaincy baggage, he will look in fine form. Hamu Kayondo, Arnold Otwani, and the returning Shahzad Kamal will be looking to make the most of the trip as they test themselves against quality opposition.

Richard Agamire on his first trip with the senior team has an opportunity to show what he has got to confirm his place on the final 14.

There is no official communication on who the permanent captain of the team will be but Brian Masaba will lead the side on Zimbabwe Tour.

They’re playing Takashinga 3 times, u19 once and then OH once in a T20. I guess if you don’t belong to Takashinga you’re a bit stuffed :lol:

Seems a waste for the Ugandans. Why not play Zim a and Zim?

Id actually find that demeaning.
Wouldn’t want us playing teams lower than Namibia, Dutch etc

Like going from an investment banker to Burger King cashier.

Besides, even then we would find a way to show them the utmost respect and watch the game go down to the wire as Zimbabwe carefully negotiate the 3.5 run rate required no doubt.

These scorecards right here show why we can’t promote ‘new bloods’.

Only Craig and Raza in the 33 people listed from Zimbabwe played to close to required standard against Uganda.
