Uganda shake things up after poor performances


The Ugandan Cricket Association is undertaking a backroom shake-up following the team’s poor performances in the ICC World Cricket League and ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers.

Coach Martin Suji and team manager Henry Okecho will be joined by an expanded technical team which will include coaches for bowling, batting and fielding, a fitness coach and a psychologist to boost the team’s all-round preparations.

The move follows the council and all other stakeholders’ recommendations that more backroom staff were needed if Uganda’s performance is to improve.

“We are looking around and we will come up with a big announcement soon. What I can assure you is that we also saw that Suji needed more help and we will have staff in other departments for the sake of having a well prepared and motivated team,” chief executive Justin Ligyalingi said.
