For all the great expectations, Uganda will not take anything for granted in the ICC World Cricket League Division IV in Malaysia.

True they are clear favourites, but cannot ignore the fact that just like any other game cricket tends to have shocking moments.

In fact, their relegation from division three last year was its self a rude awakening of sorts.

“We must engage the tournament with a lot of focus and cannot afford to undermine our opponents” skipper Roger Mukasa said.

Business for the Cricket Cranes starts Friday with a warm up against Bermuda, two days before their official games begin.

The change in the team set up gives an opportunity to youngsters who were sidelined during last year’s ICC World Cricket League Division Three.

All-rounder Kenneth Waiswa who was dropped prior to the ICC World Cricket League Division Three after failing to impress during the Kenya Tour of Uganda this time round made the cut.

Waiswa, Simon Ssesazi and Fred Achelam have so much to prove in their first major senior team tournament.

Coach Steve Tikolo is particularly impressed by Achelam’s wicket keeping abilities. He offers permanent replacement for the legendary Lawrence Sematimba. Uganda will open their campaign against the hosts on saturday.
