Uganda Cricket national team defeated Rwanda by 8wickets in their last game of the Africa qualifiers to seal the final tickey to the T20 World Cup which will be held in USA and West Indies.

The Cricket Cranes have written history after breaking a huge jinx to qualify for the first ever Cricket World as they defeated Rwanda by a sparr of 9 wickets as they managed to chase a 65 run score set up by Rwanda.

That meant only Rwanda stood between the Cricket Cranes and immortality. Jackson Ogwang’s team dealt very well with the pressure that came with the prospect of qualifying when they took to the field to face Rwanda in their final game.

The comfort in which they dispatched their East African brothers was testament to this. Rwanda laboured through both innings as Uganda stamped their authority en route to rewriting the history books.

The stage had already been set for the triumphant Ugandans. This victory was simply an icing to the cake that was baked a day earlier.

Cricket Cranes. The players have done themselves a huge favour in marketing the names on their backs. Alpesh Ramjani, Riazat Ali Shah, Dinesh Nakrani, Bilal Hassun and the captain himself Brian Masaba have done exceptionally well to earn Uganda a place at next year’s World Cup in the West Indies and the USA.

They have deservedly earned themselves a seat at the table. They will now compete on the big stage against the big boys. From this qualifier, Uganda advances as second placed team alongside Namibia who emerged top.
