Team Uganda have been flagged off to Botswana for the qualifiers of the 2022 ICC Women’s U19 T20 World Cup due September 1-13.
Uganda is in Group B alongside hosts Botswana, Namibia and Sierra Leone.
Tanzania, Rwanda, Malawi, Mozambique and Nigeria are the other teams also taking part in the qualifiers.
Only ticket is up for grabs at the Qualifiers for the final tournament that will be played in South Africa due January 2023.
“Chances for team Uganda to qualify are high, we are ready and this being the first tournament you can’t tell who is doing what,” said coach Yusuf Nanga.
“We are just confident that we shall take that one slot to the World Cup.”
The Girls have been in camp since August 14 and will be expected to put up a show at the inaugural event.
“It’s exciting to work with these girls, it’s a new experience, they are willing to learn and they are willing to try out a couple of stuff,” Nanga added.
“We have been following them online,” he explained on his Opponents. “But we are blessed that most of our girls have been playing in the league, they have played better opposition than what they are going to find and that will help them execute what they have learnt.
“We are a balanced side, and expect the best.”
