Kenya trains in Uganda ahead of World Cricket League

09 June 2015, 18:36

Nairobi - The Kenyan national cricket team have set up camp in Uganda ahead of their WCL match against Netherlands.

Former Captain Steve Tikolo, who is also the head coach, has stated the reason they are in Uganda is because the weather in Kenya is preventing them from training on a regular basis.

Tikolo believes that they should not underestimate Ugandan cricket as it will be competitive enough to provide the East African giants good practice ahead of their WCL match.

"We are determined to perform well in the World Cricket League and this training in Uganda means a lot to the team," the 43-year-old told xinhuanet.com.

Chief Executive Officer of the Uganda Cricket Association, Justine Ligyalingi, said that Ugandan cricket will benefit from Kenya practicing in their country as it will provide the players some incite from experienced cricketers.

The Kenyan team that has ventured to Uganda includes Colins Obuya, who famously scored an unbeaten 98 runs against Australia in the 2011 World Cup.
