Busoga College Mwiri owns the UCA Boys Cricket Week. A record 17 titles suggests they have bought all the rights.
 
But then it doesn't reflect on them that they have reached a point of satisfaction. They remain hungry for more and confident of defending the title. However, it's not what you want. It's what you get here.

Being captain puts him at the very center of a huge responsibility to lift a long line of inexperienced young players.
 
They have already promised to silence any one coming their way in a very reassuring tone.
 
“There is no one to fear. We have carefully prepared for this edition, blending in the team with enthusiastic players who know that there is a name to protect” said Jonathan Afunaaduula, one of the key players.
 
Meanwhile, Cyrus Kakuru who turns out for Tornado in the top flight of the cricket league is another key asset for the defending champions. He has already fired with a man of the match performance (53 from 34 balls) in their 36  runs win over Nyakasura School.
 
Nonetheless it is never easy pickings throughout this competition and for this reason, the defending champions face a stern opposition from Kololo SS who have a natural force in former U19 Baby Cricket Cranes skipper Frank Akankwasa.
 
Last year’s finalists St. Johns Mukono remain a threat in the week-long contest that ends on Saturday at Lugogo oval.
