The buildup chatter has Davis Karashani (pictured) looking up to a "good game" against Kenya this Friday at the Kyambogo Oval.

The Kenya Tour to Uganda is right on time to warm up the boys for the all-important ICC World Cricket League Division Three 23-30 next month in Uganda.

The sallying right-hand batsman was exceptional in the 2013 World Cricket League Division 3 in Bermuda where he inspired Uganda to a second finish. He finished as man of series.

Back from retirement, the man who has played first class cricket for his country is in to propel Uganda to glory days.

The Cricket Cranes skipper describes the week-long series with Kenya as a "Mock" [Exam] to the boys that is set to test their abilities ahead of ICC World Cricket League Division Three.

"This is the moment to put ourselves out there to be tested. Kenya is a good side for this given that they have played international cricket for some good time" said Karashani, who captains Uganda Cricket Cranes.

Coach Steven Tikolo's immeasurable experience is a huge catalyst to Uganda's projections. Uganda Cricket Cranes' desperate call back to division two is what Tikolo certainly needs to answer with audacity.

The Kenyan team will engage in five 50 overs matches against the hosts before departure on Friday next week.
