UGANDA moved closer to regaining their world status by reaching the ICC Division Three World Cricket League semi-final after beating Tanzania by four wickets.

Outstanding bowling by Charles Waiswa, Kenneth Kamyuka and Patrick Ochan left Tanzania reeling. They were all out for 64.

Uganda then made hard work of the chase and survived because of the pathetic Tanzanian fielding. Man-of-the-match Benson Mwita (4-21) was the exception.

Uganda beat Hong Kong in their opening game on Sunday and face Cayman Islands in a game that will determine who their semi-final opponents are.

Uganda, previously ranked 10th in the world among Associate Members, was relegated after a disastrous Mini-World Cup in Ireland in 2003.

“There was lack of temperament by the batsmen. We need to work on that before the next game,” head coach Sam Walusimbi said.

The tournament meanwhile mourned the death of ICC President Percy Sonn.
