The only thing that didn’t go in favor of Deus Muhumuza was the toss. However, the rest of the morning went according to the script for the Cricket Cranes in Entebbe against Nigeria.
In the third game for the Cricket Cranes in the Pearl of Africa T20 Series, Nigeria won the toss and elected to bat.
Cricket Cranes batsman Simon Ssesazi also made his debut for Uganda in the T20i. Nigeria did not get a chance to get their game going with only Oluwasesan Adedeji (34) and Peter Aho 44).
These were the only two batsmen who managed to get double figures as the Cricket Cranes restricted the West Africans to 124. They then won their 20 overs.
Henry Ssenyondo (3/15) got picked as the bowler with Frank Akankwasa (1/31) and Deus Muhumuza (1/15) playing the supporting cast.
In the chase, Simon Ssesazi (62) and Saud Islam ensured there were no hiccups as they combined for an opening partnership of 103 runs.
Despite losing both openers, the result was ensured by Dinesh Nakrani and Riazat Ali Shah.
The Cricket Cranes will be in action again on Wednesday as they take on neighbors Kenya.
