Uganda to prepare for WCL in South Africa

Martin Williamson

South Africa have agreed to host Uganda for a month to enable them to prepare for their participation in the World Cricket League Division Three competition which is being staged in Argentina in January.

The top two sides in the event will go through to the ICC World Cup Qualifiers, and Uganda are one of the favourites. They will be based in South Africa for approximately a month before the start of the tournament.

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.
