A squad of 18 Uganda female cricket players has been summoned to start training on 31/10/2022 ahead of their tour to Kenya from Dec 12th-22nd.
The Victoria Pearls’ last international engagement was the Kwibuka tournament in Rwanda where they finished 3rd. However, as they look to prepare for a busy 2023 for them, the tour to Kenya should help the girls test themselves out of the comfort of Kampala.
The squad of 18 includes three girls promoted from the U-19 team, 16-year-old Malisa Ariokot, Kevin Amuge, and Lorna Anyait. Sandra Nakayovu of Wanderers will be getting her 1st shot with the Victoria Pearls.
Immaculate Nakisuyi, Stephanie Nampina, Irene Alumo, Esther Iluko, and Proscovia Alako make a return to the Victoria Pearls after missing the last three engagements.
Lawrence Ssematimba remains the head coach of the team and he will be assisted by Lawrence Ssempijja.
