UCA intent to bear fruits at Mini Cricket finals

The obligation of nurturing talent through well-structured grass root systems has proved more of a burden than necessity to many sports federations in the country.
To a large extent, Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) has done the opposite. Schools’ cricket week programmes, clinics, camps and Mini Cricket competitions are all part of the vindication. 
And as the latter Crown Beverages Pepsi and Banks Town Cricket Club-sponsored event climaxes at Lugogo Oval today, UCA wants to score highest.

“We are sure of getting tomorrow’s stars probably for the ICC 2023 ODI World Cup,” UCA development manager Henry Okecho.

“There are key youngsters from the regional qualifiers we are trying to keep our keen eyes on,” Okecho told Daily Monitor.

The Mini Cricket started early this year with the District competitions, where a total of 18 districts and 143 primary schools participated across five different regions. 
And 16 schools that triumphed in the different regions will take part in the U11 and U13 categories in both genders. 
Some of the current Cricket Cranes players now in South Africa are products of the Mini Cricket such as Roger Mukasa, Jonathan Sebanja and Henry Senyondo from East Kololo Primary School, Davis Karashani from Lohana Academy (Kampala) and Arthur Kyobe from Magwa Primary School (Jinja).
