Kampala will host a number of "star" Melbourne players when the club tours Uganda next month, New Vision Online reports.

Players from the famous Lords Cricket oval in Australia, are due in Kampala February 13 to play matches against the national cricket team (Feb. 14), U-19 side (Feb. 16-17), select XI (Feb. 18) and also against a Kenyan U-19 side (Feb. 22-23).

“Initially, they were supposed to spend a week in Uganda and two weeks in Kenya but the situation in Kenya forced them to change the programme. They will now spend all the three weeks here,” said local cricket association secretary Ansasira Badu.

    This is a great idea,more stuff like this needs to happen. pity the ICC doesn't have the vision to make stuff like this happen. if this stuff happens more often you watch the standard of cricket improve out of sight.

    The ICC should realise crickets bigger than Australia, England and subcontinent more money should be spent by the ICC to make these sorts of tours happen more often.

    i wish the tour all the best.
