Cricket Cranes’ World Cup Dreams Ended By The Dutch

The dream that lingered in the Cricket Cranes’ minds came to a humiliating end following a huge 97 run loss to the Netherlands at the ICC Global T20 World Cup Qualifiers.

After Uganda winning the toss, they made a brave decision and electing to bowl first. However, despite an early wicket, the rest of the Dutch batting managed to weather the storm as Max ODowd (71) and Tom Cooper (81 not out) piled on the runs for the Dutch.

The pair displayed a batting masterclass as they sprayed the ball all over the Queens Sports Club in a show of pure class.

Cooper who turns out for the Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League of Australia particularly showed no mercy. He came out brutally especially against the experienced Bilal Hassun in the 18th over taking over 20 runs off his bowling.

Freddie Klaassen ripped through the top order picking up two wickets with his first two deliveries. He left Uganda railing at 7/4 and from there on the fate of the Cricket Cranes had been sealed.

A mini recovery down the order ensured that the Cricket Cranes put on a respectable total of 90 but that heavy defeat relegated the team from second in the group to fourth.

With the World Cup dream ended, Uganda will now have to play two more placement games before they return home.

Tomorrow, they will be facing Jersey in the placement semifinal before taking part in their final game on Sunday.
