UCA offer clubs equipment ahead of season start

One reason why many youngsters ditch cricket for other disciplines is the inability to access the necessary equipment for the gentleman’s game.

Helmets, gloves, balls, bats and bails are costly and maintenance season after season is hard because they wear out easily.
To temporarily solve the problem, Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) have always been a key figure in this.

On Friday at Lugogo, UCA CEO Justine Ligyalingi handed over different equipment to the 20 clubs that will take part in the National Men’s 50-Over League which bowls off Sunday. 
That’s thanks to UCA’s partners boost from Bankstown Cricket Club in Australia.

Each club received four pairs of batting pads, two helmets, three thigh guards, four abdominal guards, four pairs of batting gloves, a pair of keeping pads and gloves. At the event, Ligyalingi announced the launch of the new Division Three tier that will include five teams and will be playing on Saturdays. With Tornado B included, Division One comprises eight teams whose winner is guaranteed Shs5m.

Division Two with seven teams that will battle for the top two slots promotion worth Shs3m in total.

KICC, third-placed Challengers seek fine season finishes

 Since Tornado B earned the required point to seal their third successive National Men’s Division One 50-Over League title last Sunday, there are now new points of focus.
The remaining interest lingers around how and where the rest of the beaten pack will finish by the time the championship folds up later this month. With Nile (55 points) appearing to have sealed second, the battle for third place is still alive. Challengers (40) can leapfrog Kutchi Tigers (44) and take it only if Mohammed Aneef and company can beat Kampala Institute of Cricket Clubs (KICC) at Kyambogo Oval today. 
“If all players turn up and perform on any day, Challengers can’t be matched,” said Aneef whose side has struggled with perpetual absence of key players. Arthur Kyobe, Arnold Otwan and Ivan Thawithemwira hold the mantle for a Challengers’ side that survived the knife by two whiskers last season. But Sudhir Ruparelia-funded KICC (31) will hope to win and keep their battle for fourth alive as well. 
“If we can win our two remaining matches, we’ll finish fourth,” KICC’s Hanumant Katkar said.
