School raise stakes ahead of Cricket Week

There was a catalyst as the battle lines were drawn for this year’s Pepsi Schools Cricket Week that bowls off tomorrow at five different ovals in Kampala.

Although champions Busoga College Mwiri have bossed the last two editions, the rivaling schools have borrowed a leaf from the 16-time record winners by hiring permanent coaches. Coach Emmanuel Isaneez’s wit and pace philosophy was the difference as Mwiri dismantled Kololo by 30 runs in last year’s heated final at Lugogo Oval.

“It is going to be an extremely exciting edition,” said Justine Ligyalingi, the Uganda Cricket Association CEO, during the tournament’s media launch at Lugogo yesterday. “Every school has prepared well and we have equipped them well thanks to Bankstown Cricket Club in Sydney, Australia. Many of the boys also play club cricket and know there is a chance to push into the national junior sides for international competitions.”

Mukono Parents, winners in 2013, have secured the services of national all-rounder Frank Nsubuga, Kololo still have the know-it-all Jackson Ogwang, debutants Rainbow International have pro-active John Tumusiime, Jinja SS have soft-spoken Habibu Mugalula, Masaka SS hired ACC’s Yusuf Nanga whereas Teso College Aloet will bank on coach Ivan Kakande’s advice. The tournament that ends on September 9 will be played on a Twenty20 format and Makerere College will host all the school teams and officials.
