After multiple preparatory tours of South Africa (ICC Development program for select U19 players) and India, Uganda’s U19 squad of 14-members are all set to compete in the ICC U19 CWC Africa Division 1 qualifiers from Mar 15th – 24th in Namibia.
The road is a tough one as only one qualification spot is available from the qualifiers and Uganda will need to come up tops against the likes of Namibia, Kenya, Tanzania, Sierra Leone and Nigeria to book their ticket to 2020 ICC U19 CWC in South Africa.
All the matches in the qualifiers will be played in the 50-overs format with a 9:30AM local start time for all three games on each match-day at Wanderers, Windhoek Affies and United grounds in Windhoek.
Uganda U19 Squad:
Frank Akankwasa (Captain), Zephaniah Arinaitwe, John Gabula, Ronald Opio, Simon Oketcho, Juma Miyagi, Munir Ismail, Pascal Murungi, Trevor Bukenya, Edwin Nuwgaba, Ashraf Senkubuge, Ramathan Ochimi, Perry Wazombe & Ronald Opio
