Uganda have appointed Junior Kwebiha as captain for the ICC World Cricket League Division Three tournament in Argentina next month.

The 27-year-old Kwebiha replaces 20-year-old Davis Arinaitwe who skippered Uganda on their arduous 30-day tour of South Africa last month. Uganda returned home with a one win out of 11 matches facing (by Associate standards) formidable opposition including some provincial teams.

It's Kwebiha's second stint as captain. During his first, which started in March, 2004, he lead Uganda to a shock five-wicket win against Namibia in the Intercontinental Cup in Windhoek.

The other teams in the WCL Division Three tournament are Afghanistan, Argentina, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea.
