Uganda won by 3 runs

After a period of two weeks, the inaugural Tri-Nations T20 Cup came to an end yesterday with only one game being played and the other being abandoned with a toss.

The tournament had only three Nations competing that saw Uganda top the table to win the competition.

In the morning, Rwanda won the toss and asked Uganda to bat first as they restricted them to a small score but failed to chase it down.

Uganda started their innings on a backfoot, losing Simon Ssesazi wicket in the first over and failing to form any good partnership throughout the game.

Ronal Lutaya tried to overcome Rwanda bowlers but lacked a good partner to push the scores with as he posted 18 runs off 17 balls.

Pascal Murungi and Juma Miyagi efforts never went unnoticed as each registered 18 runs off 17 balls and 21 runs off 28 deliveries respectively before Frank Nsubuga pulled off 17 runs off seven balls to help Uganda reach 108/10 in 19.3 overs.

In the defense, Orchide Tuyisenge and Eric Dusingizimana ensured Rwanda started on a good note as each contributed 27 runs off 29 balls and 17 runs off 11 balls respectively.

But once the pair was lost, their followers started struggling failing to form any partnership that could yield better results with only Kevin Irakoze adding a double figure of 11 runs off 8 deliveries.

Joseph Baguma, Juma Miyagi and Brian Masaba were the players to watch with the ball as they ensured Uganda defended the score as each registered figures of 3/12, 2/12 and 2/8 making Rwanda to fall short by three runs.
