Uganda: Uganda Favourites to Win Division Three Title

By // News

The ICC's pre-tournament media release said Uganda "will struggle" at the World Cricket League Division 3 in Bermuda.

Sunday at the National Stadium in Hamilton, the self-same Uganda will start the ICC World Cricket League Final as favourites.

Davis Arinaitwe's team booked their place in the final with a game to spare after an 82-run win over the USA on Thursday that stretched their perfect record to four wins out of four. Uganda face Oman in tonight's last round-robin games, which would determine the other finalist. USA, Bermuda and Nepal were the teams in contention.

All have already lost to Uganda so whoever comes, Martin Suji's outfit will be confident of their chances even if their focus in the last two days may have been diverted by the satisfaction of qualifying for the 2014 CICC World Cup Qualifier.

Or for that matter, the satisfaction of proving a few doubters wrong.

"How can anyone not think about that, really?" asked skipper Arinaitwe after Uganda stamped their ticket to the WCQ on Thursday.

"We've achieved the objective, coming into this tournament, of trying to qualify for the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier, so we are happy."

According to said ICC missive, Nepal were certain of a top two finish, with USA and Italy being the other contenders. As for Uganda, well, author Peter Della Penna concluded that, "Uganda's heavy defeat to USA in a warm-up match is a strong indication that the African side will struggle".

Clearly, Uganda's humiliating warm-up loss to the USA (by over 150 runs) was either a decoy or an aberration. It certainly was not a strong indication of Uganda's ability, as a victory in the final would confirm.
