Baby Cricket Cranes takes on South Africa in second World Cup match

The Baby Cricket Cranes packed their bags late Sunday night and moved from Guyana to Trinidad and Tobago for their last two group matches against South Africa and India.

The Baby Cricket Cranes fell to Ireland in their opening World Cup by 39 runs, but a loss that had many positives for Uganda.

The slow bowlers, especially Matthew Musinguzi and Joseph Baguma, were exceptional on the slow Guyana wickets, but the biggest improvement was with the bat. Despite the top-of-order failures, the middle and low-order combined combined 180 runs led by captain Pascal Murungi to take Uganda’s first half-ton at the World Cup. Juma Miyagi delivered some nasty blows at the back with a well made 38 off 28 balls with the support of Isaac Ategeka who sadly ran out for 24. Uganda also had two partnerships of 53 between Pascal Murungi with Joseph Baguma and Juma Miyagi with Edwin Nuwagaba .

Denis has represented Uganda at international cricket events including the World Cup. He is currently the captain of Wanderers Cricket Club. More from Denis Musalic
