Uganda’s U-19 national cricket side – The Baby Cricket Cranes - fly in from Dar es Salaam this evening knowing the hard work starts now and they cannot afford to rest on their laurels.
Henry Okecho’s boys whitewashed Tanzania by 125 runs in the final round of the Pepsi ICC Africa U-19 Cricket World Cup qualifier played at the Dar es Salaam Gymkhana Oval yesterday.
Man of match Collins Okwalinga (7/14) and spinner Frank Akakwansa (3/13) bowled out Tanzania for 44 runs in 22 overs after Abdallah Lubega (52), Zephaniah Arinaitwe (21) and Rogers Olipa (25) had helped Uganda set 169 in 46 overs – their biggest total of the tournament.
The massive win guaranteed that Uganda finished second and booked the solitary berth allocated to the continent for the global qualifier scheduled for Bangladesh later this year. Both Uganda (0.686) and Kenya (0.131) finished tied on six points but the former edged through courtesy for a better Net Run Rate (NRR).
Namibia (eight points) won the showpiece and walk straight into the 2016 Youth World Cup in Bangladesh despite falling to Kenya by four wickets yesterday.
The global qualifier, which will feature all the second-place finishers from the five ICC regions, comes as a reprieve to the Ugandans who almost bottled it. Only the champion of the global qualifier will progress to the main World Cup.
“We withheld their daily allowances for the two days they played poor cricket,” head of delegation Dennis Musali told Daily Monitor. “And our actions worked as the boys woke up and put on a clinical show against the hosts.”

Congratulations to Team Uganda
By registering victories in their two opening fixtures at the on-going ICC Regional U-19 World Cup Qualifiers, Team Uganda will head into their contest against Nigeria at the University Oval in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania today with heads held high.
The sights of a ticket to the 2016 Youth World Cup in Bangladesh are clear after coach Henry Okecho’s troops produced stellar performances to defeat Botswana by seven wickets on Saturday before a 29-run win over Kenya yesterday.
“It is a perfect start for us,” Okecho spoke on phone from the team camp at the Golden Tulip Hotel yesterday. “We will continue to take one game at a time and we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves,” he said.
At the Anadil Burhani Ground, Calvin Wabwire’s parsimonious bowling got him a seven-wicket haul as the boys from Gaborone were bowled out for a paltry 75 runs in 19.3 overs.
Early dismissals for Meet Dobariya, Parvan Mahendrakumar and Zephania Arinaitwe that accounted for only seven runs briefly scared Uganda but all was well thanks to John Gabula (35*) and Abdallah Lubega’s (32*) winning 69-run fourth-wicket combo.
