Uganda coach Ebrahim Mohammed has asked for the national team to play more international games on a regular basis if it is to improve its level of competitiveness.
The squad will play a series of friendly games with Kenya and the coach agrees that more high-profile series are required if Uganda is to rise in world cricket.
In an interview with Sunday Vision, he said: "I am trying to get the boys to play at least once every month so we can get them the exposure they need. If you are playing international cricket once in six months or a year, you can't get anywhere."
The coach also believes that such challenges will help Uganda prepare well for the ICC Intercontinental Shield clash against United Arab Emirates next month.
The national squad will depart for Kenya for three 50-over games and two Twenty20s. Kenya will then visit Kampala for a similar schedule.
