Cricket cranes bounced back with two wins against the hosts and Tanzania in high scoring games to pick up their second and third wins of the tournament.
Roger Mukasa’s half century headlined all the two games of the day as he scored a timely 89 runs off 62 balls with a number of boundaries to heavily contribute to the final scores of cricket cranes against Tanzania.
The batsman had a shaky start at the tournament in the first game against Rwanda where he recorded zero runs off two balls but his return with a half century could be something big to note and he tries to find his form back.
Uganda set a total score of 169/9 in 20 overs against Tanzania in the afternoon session.
Tanzania seemed to be a side that could pull off the chase but later lacked enough resources to finish up the job at hand as they fell short by thirteen runs.
Before Tanzania, Uganda took on the hosts in the morning and third game of Cricket Cranes at same venue where they registered a clean win.
Simon Ssesazi and Pascal Murungi were men to watch with the bat during the morning encounter as each posted 35 runs and 22 runs respectively to help Uganda post 168/9 in 2 overs.
Bilal Hassun ran the bowling show as he registered notable figures of 3/4.
Rwanda had nothing to offer in the game as they failed to find better solutions to Ugandan bowlers falling short by 133 runs.
One could say, Cricket cranes are up and running in Kigali at the Ti-Nations T20 Cup.
