Uganda Cricket Cranes Pull Off Heist to Win Continent Cup T20 Final

This piece about Wednesday’s heist in Nairobi with Uganda Cricket Cranes captain Brian Masaba playing the professor role was not meant to kiss the sun.

For a fact, I abandoned the game with five Overs to go, with Kenya in full control of the second innings, and went for a shower.

This was in preparation for an evening workout to clear my head ahead of the expected online banter from the neighbours in Kenya.

But, before stepping out, I trusted my ancestors’ piercing whisper, started my VPN app, and checked on the scores.

Well, Kenya’s Simbas needed 28 runs off 30 balls and but the fight I saw from the boys had me glued to my phone.

I shouted when Siraje Nsubuga caught the Wicket of Colins Obuya who was cutting through Cranes akin to a hot knife through butter.

My concerned neighbor came rushing to my door and asked if all was okay. I had no words to explain the situation, and simply asked him to join me.

Dear Cricket Cranes, that hard-fought victory earned you a new fan. He will be coming to Lugogo Cricket Oval for the first time, not to kill the green but to enjoy the gentleman’s game.

Yes, he belongs to that family that floods and destroys the facility in the name of ‘eating party’ as they warm up to emulate Gravity Omutujju‘s new song Okwepicha.

As I sign out and continue with the celebrations allow me to share the results from Nairobi.

Uganda managed to defend its 125 runs against Kenya to win the Continent Cup T20 final by one run.

Not forgetting, I advise my neighbour and other Cranes fans to get health insurance because more heists are on the way, that’s how we WIN!
