PATRICK Ochan has been advised to have a minimal six-day rest following an injury he sustained during the last practice match against the Sri Lanka Army XI on Monday.

The youngster underwent a successful operation after a ball deflected from the bat while at the crease and hit his testicles, causing a blood clot which called for an immediate operation.

Uganda’s physiotherapist Andrew Meya confirmed Ochan would be missed for at least a week.

“He is recovering slowly, though with a lot of pain and he cannot be in action until he wholly recovers,” Meya told The New Vision at the team’s camp in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

With three days to the start of the U-19 World Cup, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has summoned Daniel Ruyange, Emmanuel Issaneez and Hamza Saleh to report for age tests. The move aims at eliminating over-age players.

The trio were the expected targets because they featured for the national senior team at the 2007 World Cup qualifiers in Ireland last year.
