The 2023 edition of the East Africa T20 Cricket Cup is set to run from August 20-31 at Gahanga stadium.
The tournament will be played in a round-robin format with each side playing 12 games and the top side winning the tournament.
Cricket Cranes return to Kigali to defend the trophy they won last December and this year’s edition will feature the same three teams; Uganda, Tanzania and hosts Rwanda.
The Ugandan squad of 14 players has some changes from the team that lost 6-0 in Namibia. Henry Ssenyondo and Simon Ssesazi make a return after missing most of the Namibia trip due to personal reasons; Riazat Ali Shah misses out due to injury while Frank Nsubuga is given a break due to a busy schedule ahead.
Ronak Patel is drafted into the side and Siraje Nsubuga has made a full recovery from the injury he suffered in Nairobi and gets another shot at the national team.
Uganda takes on the host Rwanda in the opening game on Sunday at 10:45am before facing Tanzania in the second game at 2:45PM.
