CRICKET loves its heroes so it is no surprise that Junior Kwebiha has attracted a lot of media attention since suddenly popping up on Africa’s team-sheet three weeks ago. 

On that occasion, Africa were playing Mwiri and Kwebiha scored 24 runs as his team recorded a five-wicket triumph. On Sunday, Kwebiha came close to the first half century of his return, scoring a game-best 47 off 37, although he could not save Africa from a two-wicket loss to Jinja SS. 

The reputable former national captain retired from all forms of cricket in 2011 due to a hefty work schedule. Kwebiha’s exit went down as a huge loss for national cricket because the all-rounder possesses a natural feel for the game that extends beyond runs and wickets. 

Kwebiha’s quiet charisma and nous is the kind that Uganda cricket needs to retain if future generations are to be nurtured. In this regard, Kwebiha’s return has the potential to spread beyond the small confines of ACC.
