Uganda's principle aim in the forthcoming World Cup Qualifiers is to earn themselves ODI status (read the full piece with their captain, Junior Kwebiha, here.) However, they've gone one step further in their quest by bringing on board a professional motivational speaker, Kader Amien:
"He is a sports motivator and motivational speaker," Mohammed made a brief introduction of the man who's been enlisted to buildup Uganda's fortitude.
"He'll be working with the boys for the first two or three games and has even expressed interest in continuing with the team if it qualifies for the World Cup."
The bit about qualifying for the World Cup is still a long way away but Mohammed is confident Amien's presence will serve to get Uganda closer to it.
"He used to come up and motivate the boys when I was still coach of Western Province (in South Africa) and he did a great job there so he'll help," added Mohammed.

Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
