Nyakasura school were able to claim a 3-1 series win against the visiting Rwanda School select side that was visiting the western Uganda school. The two sides were able to compete in four games, two ODI games and two t20 games.
The hosts won the first t20 game played between the two sides and further extended their lead by blowing away the visitors in the second ODI game before the visitors pulled one back winning the third ODI game.
However, the hosts closed out the series winning the fourth and final game of the series to seal the 3-1 win. The school select side from Rwanda gave the hosts a chance to test themselves before the start the qualifiers for boys school's cricket week.
School coach Ivan Thawithemwira also used the series to give a chance to some of his junior players as they prepare for a long season in Div 3 of the national league as well as the boys schools cricket qualifiers.
Coach Ivan Thawithemwira shared with us lessons from of the series and which players stood out.
I think it was a good tour. It was a privilege for the school to host a National side in what was a historic tour. But also, for the boys to start to realize their potential was good I thought. Musemeza Charles got a big hundred (128) in one of the matches, and it was good to see the pace bowlers put in some good work. Asaba Brian scored a match winning knock in the final game, plus Baguma Joseph keeps impressing with his skills with the ball in hand.
Nyakasura will now turn its focus to the national league and the upcoming boys school's cricket week qualifiers.
