Uganda Cricket donates equipment to schools
Uganda Cricket Association (UCA) has purchased cricket equipment worth 20 million Uganda shillings in a bid to maintain its grounds around the country for future international matches.

Uganda hosts Namibia in September 2010 for the four-day ICC Intercontinental Shield match, although it has also played regular matches against Kenya in the past 12 months.

Speaking to the New Vision, UCA CEO Justine Ligyalingi said: "Acquiring this equipment eliminates the cost of hiring gadgets. We received part of the money from the International Cricket Council and the balance from our domestic cricket friends."

"The equipment includes three motorised rollers, nine brush cutters, a mower and boundary ropes. We have decided to give some of the equipment to schools, including Ntare, Kings College Budo and Nyakasura, to maintain their grounds," he added.
