A squad of 18 ladies has been summoned to the Uganda national women’s cricket team to start training next week on Monday ahead of their tour to Kenya which will run from the 12th to the 22nd of December.

The squad of 18 includes three girls promoted from the U-19 team, 16-year-old Malisa Ariokot, Kevin Amuge, and Lorna Anyait.

One of the inform league players, Sandra Nakayovu of Wanderers will also be getting her first 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.

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, the tour to Kenya should help the girls test themselves out of the comfort of Kampala.

Lawrence Ssematimba remains the head coach of the team and he will be assisted by Lawrence Ssempijja.
