Uganda skipper Frank Nsubugo has reflected that Nepal is a tough team to play against in a press conference on Wednesday. ““I think the match is going to be a tough one. We’ve played Nepal three times, so we know it is a tough team to play, and we are looking forward to coming tomorrow and playing hard” said the newly appointed Cricket Cranes skipper previewing today’s match. Nsubugo took charge of the Uganda from Danis Arinaitwe.
Nepali skipper on the other hand was rather diplomatic with his answers. Not wanting to express over confidence prior to the tournament Khadka opined that all teams in the Div-3 had equal chances of making it to to the next level. “I would say that all teams are here to progress into Division 2, so we want to take one match at a time. More than rivalry, I think that each team is eagerly waiting to outdo the others. I think it is a great opportunity for us, we played Division 3 last year as well, so it is an exciting challenge.”
“We need to play well, it is as simple as that. There are a lot of good teams out here, and in cricket you can’t take it easy. So, you have to play to your strengths. If we do that, the results should be positive for us,” said Khadka.
