Cricket Cranes in Qatar: Waiswa Speaks Out After Brilliant Ton

Kenneth Waiswa revelled in his latest player of the match performance against Qatar as the cricket cranes humbled the hosts by 138 runs in the third game of the ongoing bilateral series in Doha.

The 24-year-old notched a not out century as Uganda who lost the toss, and were sent in to bat first protected their set score of 292 runs.

Waiswa scored 101 including 11 4s and 2 sixes off 96 balls to inspire Laurance Mahatlane’s team to another resounding victory over the Arab nation.

The all-rounder was for the second time at the Series named the Player of the Match.

“I was a bit unlucky in the second game, but today I told myself just keep batting, keep playing,” Waiswa who scored 39 runs in the second game told the-SportsNation.

“It feels nice to have a big one for the team and for myself, but basically for me it was about the concentration and focusing on the ball that comes, and not worrying about the team’s scorecard.

“It’s really nice! It been long without scoring for the team. I’m looking forward to having a good one again in the coming games.”

The cranes No.8 picked up three wickets in the second game which Uganda won in similar fashion, but he sat out the bowling duties in the third one.

Juma Miyaji, Riazat Ali Shah, Henry Senyondo, Frank Nsubuga, Roger Mukasa and Cosmos Kyewuta got the job done nonetheless, in this department with the latter three each dismissing two.

Miyaji picked up one while Senyondo had the most with three. Riazat did not send anyone packing, but he bossed the best economy (1.00) having conceded only three runs.

The four 50-Over series climaxes on Tuesday at the Doha University of Science and Technology ground.
