The Head coach of the Uganda Lady Cricket Cranes Suraj Karavadra has selected a squad of 20 ladies to enter residential training camp.
Earlier this month, a team of 24 started preparations and has now been reduced to 20 from which the final 14 will be selected.
The team is preparing for the Global World Cup qualifiers which are slated for September 7th to 20th in Gaborone Botswana.
“We are going to a camp for three weeks before leaving for Botswana and the reason is that we don’t want a repeat of what happened with Rwanda. We shall use the three weeks to get the girls playing together and use more of the centre wicket.”
“We have our sports phycologist (Edgar Kazibwe) with us for this period and it will be important that we keep the whole group in a good space before we travel to Botswana.”

The team will be camped at Hawaii Resort in Kawuku Entebbe until they leave for the tournament in early September.
Uganda will battle 10 other teams for the single African slot to the next round. The other nations are Botswana, Cameroon, Namibia, Nigeria, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
Uganda was able to achieve the feat in 2017 in Namibia.
