More build up games for senior cricket side

Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) organises more preparatory games ahead of Global World T20 Qualifiers.
Lack of match practise will not be an issue when the national senior men’s cricket team takes part in the Global World T20 Qualifiers slated for UAE this November and later the ICC World Cup Qualifiers in New Zealand in January.
The team completed the tour of South Africa at the weekend in which they won six Twenty20 games as well as two of the three limited over games (50 overs) against South African clubs.
The Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) though is not yet done with the team’s preparations.
They have organised another set of games this time against Marylebone Cricket Club.
The England-based club is due to arrive on Friday.
UCA operations manager Martin Ondeko told Daily Monitor that the tourists will start their tour with a two-day game against Uganda XI this Saturday at Kyambogo. They will also take part in a tri-series involving Uganda and Rwanda later in their tour that will last 10 days.
Opening bowler Charles Waiswa believes the games will certainly improve the side.
“The games obviously will help us try a few things out,” he said. The left arm bowler thinks the team’s batting will also improve as a result of these games. “It gets better with time and these games will help us overcome that.”
