The Kenya National Cricket team is set to travel to Uganda on Saturday evening in preparation for the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers slated for later this month. The team will take on their Ugandan counterparts in three 50-over matches and two T20s between 8th and 12th June.

Head Coach Steve Tikolo says that the weather in Nairobi has rendered training almost impossible and inadequate at best.

“The weather in Uganda is better than we have here hence the boys can bat,bowl and field and get on with the preparation process. Also,Uganda is a competitive side so we’re optimistic that we’ll get much done to our advantage within the coming week.”Despite the fact that these are merely preparation matches,the fans and players alike will be keen to see who comes out on top between the two bitter archrivals.

The national team travels to Ireland and Scotland on 19th June to battle it out with thirteen other countries for six of the available spots in the 2016 T20 World Cup in India.

Senior Men National team profiles

profiles the team that will represent Uganda at the ICC WCL Div III that will take place in Malaysia after it was moved away from Uganda due to security concerns.

frank nsubuga
Club: Tornado
Age: 34
Batting: Right-hand bat
Bowling: Right-arm off break
A decade of featuring for the senior national side, Franco as he is popularly known is a spin bowler. He will be deputized by Brian Masaba. He takes over from Davis Karashani in the October 23rd to 30th event.
"We are a family and I am happy with the work put in so far, the boys are hungry, confidence is high, we are more focused than ever before and looking forward to the tournament.’

Key for him will be soaking up the pressure especially for some debutants at the big stage.
‘Do your basics well and you will win the game’, believes Nsubuga.

brian masaba
Club: Nile
Age: 23
Batting: Right-hand batsman
Bowling: Right-arm medium
An all rounder who has come into his own by being a regular fixture on the national team side, He is a good fielder and can bat in the middle order. He is your go to guy when you need stability after quick falling wickets. As an assistant captain, more responsibility will come and it will be interesting to see how he handles it.

roger mukasa
Club: Tornado B
Age: 25
Batting: Right-hand batsman
Bowling: Right-arm off spin

Uganda’s opening batsman for the last five years, he has been on great form with three centuries in the local league and has improved his bowling tremendously, he will need to put runs on the board to get Uganda going. Good hooker, cut and drive, used to scoring fast and when that doesn’t happen might be forced to make a mistake but all round a good bat.

deus muhumuza
Club: Tornado
Age: 25 years
Batting: Right-hand bat
Bowling: Right -arm medium
Nick named Baby because of his youthful looks; he has worked himself back on the team after being dropped for the World T20 qualifiers in the UAE last year. Runs well between the wickets, bats well at the death, good arm and as a medium pace bowler, has a lot of variety with his in-swinger. He is also a good fielder. 

daniel ruyange
Club: KICC
Age: 29
Batting: Right-hand bat
Bowling: Right-arm medium-fast 
A bowler who can bat, it has been a long journey for him back to the national team after an injury on his right shoulder that saw him get surgery and sit out a year without cricket, fitness and a lot of hard work has seen him return and will be an important addition if he can last the duration of the tournament.

davis karashani dubai
Club: Tornado B
Age: 27
Batting style: Right-hand batsman
Bowling style: Right-arm off break
The ex-skipper comes into this with lots of experience under his belt. Changing his home club this season has boosted his confidence even more and has been batting longer and picking the runs. He can drive well and loves playing the slog sweep. Tends to turn the ball down the leg-side but will be key on the spin friendly wickets in Malaysia.

lawrence sematimba
Club: Tornado B
Age: 32years
Batting style: Right-hand batsman
Fielding position: Wicket-keeper
Dropped for the (ICC) World T20 qualifiers in the UAE, he has worked his way back on the team. Arguably the man to take on the Benjamin Musoke’s role after his retirement from the national team, he is agile in front of the wicket, he can improvise on all shots and rotate the strike well. Not the biggest hitter on the team by a mile, but plays spins very well.

hamu bageya kayondo
Club: Wanderers
Age: 24
Batting style: Right-hand bat
Bowling style: Right-arm bowler
Promoted from the U19 side, Kayondo has come through the ranks fast and will need to deliver at the big stage. Being handed captaincy at his home club has matured him. He works hard and wants to improve, technically can play straight and, good with spin. Perhaps his only flaw comes with attempting to hit the ball hard and sometimes it doesn’t go the distance. 

arthur kyobe pp
Club: Challengers
Age: 26years
Batting style: Left-hand bat
Bowling style: Right-arm medium
Self confident, when Kyobe decides to bat freely it is a master–class. He has been on form with his club since being dropped from the team for the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand sighting indiscipline, all that has fueled him to want to prove a point and that will benefit team Uganda. Criticized for batting for himself and not the team in certain occasions.

Club: TUT South Africa
Age: 28
Batting style: Left-hand bat
Fielding position: Wicket-keeper
A good bat brought in for reinforcement, he did not get as many runs as expected at the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand but very consistent and should get runs.

henry senyondo
Club: Charity TF
Age: 21
Batting style: Right-hand batsman
Bowling style: slow left-arm orthodox
The slow turning wickets in the sub-continent favors spin and that is what Ssenyondo provides, having put his injury worries behind him, he should have a good tournament.

jonathan sebanja
Club: Charity TF
Age: 26
Batting style: Right-hand batsman
Bowling style: Left-arm medium-fast
He has come into his own recently and accepts more responsibility, he has improved with bat and bowl and that will be important for Team Uganda.

Club: KICC
Age: 29
Batting style: Right-hand batsman
Bowling style: Right-arm medium
Only recently made his debut on the national team, he gave a good account of himself and comes off as an all-rounder.

naeem bardai
Club: Hatherley & Reddings (UK)
Age: 22
Batting style: Right-hand batsman
Fielding position: Wicket-keeper
He will be the lead Wicket-keeper and also a good bat. He knows the basics well and a confident young man making his debut for Team Uganda at an International tournament.
