MCC drew their three-day match against the Ugandan national XI, but it was a heartening performance from the home side. Uganda made 220 in their first innings with last season’s Middlesex spin pairing of Jamie Dalrymple and Chris Peploe sharing eight wickets. A strong MCC side was expected to take a lead, but in the end it took an unbeaten 68 from Bilal Shafyat to steer them to 193. Uganda reached 195 for 7 before declaring and setting MCC a target of 223 in 47 overs. They lost quick early wickets and settled on playing out time.

Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
