Uganda opener Roger Mukasa 's maiden century gave the visitors their second successive win over Bermuda in Hamilton.

Uganda opener Roger Mukasa's maiden century gave the visitors their second successive win over Bermuda in Hamilton.

A hurricane threat over the weekend forced the home board to cancel the two scheduled 50-over games and convert the Twenty20 to be played on Monday into a 50-over affair - the last national fixture for coach Gus Logie, whose contract with Bermuda will run out shortly.

    Great to see cricket becoming popular in other parts of the world, teams like Uganda & Afganistan should be encouraged. It is a shame that even after 130 years of Test Cricket, we don't have 10 equally good teams playing cricket.

    I agree with Colin. In 2007, just before the inaugral T20 World Cup, Uganda featured in a four nation tournament in Kenya. Pakistan and Srilanka were the other two teams. Uganda managed a victory against the hosts Kenya.

    This is good news for Uganda, though sad for Bermuda and Gus Logie. I sincerely believe Uganda, albeit with a depleted line-up in Hamilton, are the up-and-coming team in Africa. They have good basic organisation, a good Under-19 team, and the game is reported properly in their press - unlike in Kenya next door - and the game's popularity is consequently rising. Let's hope Bermuda can claw their way back from their current nadir, but good luck to Uganda in their future games.
