Uganda national coach Mohammed Ebrahim is on a mission to Namibia to watch the ongoing ICC Intercontinental Shield game and study the host's game plan against Bermuda in Windhoek.
Uganda needs to beat Namibia in Kampala in September 2010 to advance to the finals of the ICC Intercontinental Shield which will be played in UAE in November. The team currently tops the points table with 29 points in two games followed by UAE with 17 points in the same number of games. Namibia and Bermuda round off the list with six and zero points respectively from one game each.
Uganda Cricket Association CEO, Justine Ligyalingi, said on New Vision: "We are in constant touch with him. He had hinted travelling to Namibia for the match before he comes back on April 8, to start training the national team. He does not want to take any chances and plans to use his study to better the team's chances against Namibia."
