Victoria Series demons follow Alako to Namibia

Opener Proscovia Alako‘s worrying form continued yesterday as Uganda lost by 50 runs all out to U.A.E.

Victoria Pearls’ top hitter struggled in the side’s opener of the Capricorn Eagles Quadrangular Series in Windhoek in Namibia.

Alako opened the batting with Kevin Awino, and although she ended the game as the only player with a six, she only scored 14 runs.

In the recently concluded Victoria Series, Alako who was named best batter at the Waterfalls League back in January managed just 21 runs.

Alako’s opening partner, Awino was Uganda’s best batter with 21 runs. The two were the only players on the team to score in double digits.

Janet Mbabazi (5), Stephanie Nampiina (9), Immaculate Nakisuyi (2), Rita Musamali (8), Consy Aweko (6), Irene Alumo (1) and Sarah Akiteng (1) summed up Uganda’s scorers.

Aweko, the team captain will feel her side conceded way too many runs, runs that proved so hard to chase.

Alumo (2), Aweko (1), Anyipo (1), and Mbabazi (1) picked the wickets for Uganda, but the scoreboard was still ticking.

U.A.E’s Kavisha Kumar who was named the best batter at the Victoria Series and Theertha Satish scored 30 and 39 runs respectively.

Uganda beat U.A.E at the Victoria Series, but the Arabians delivered their revenge mercilessly.

The two nations left Uganda on the same day on Sunday and were both playing their first game of the tournament.

The Victoria Pearls will return to action this Thursday against Hong Kong before playing U.A.E again on Saturday morning.
