Uganda coach targets I Shield clash against UAE

Uganda national coach, Mohammed Ebrahim Barney, has set his sights on the next ICC Intercontinental Shield tie against UAE in January and is determined to groom a disciplined side for the encounter

Uganda national coach, Mohammed Ebrahim Barney, has set his sights on the next ICC Intercontinental Shield tie against UAE in January and is determined to groom a disciplined side for the encounter.

Blaming lack of player concentration on the team's dismal showing against Kenya in the three-match 50-over series that led to a 3-0 whitewash, the coach has set tight rules and asked players to report promptly on 4 January for training.

In an interview with Daily monitor, vice-captain Davis Arinaitwe said: "He wasn't overly happy with the way we played in Nairobi. We won the Twenty20 matches and lost all the three 50-over games. A strict disciplinary measure awaits anyone who fails to turn up without a worthy excuse. He is determined to take us to another level."

Uganda, currently the leaders of the inaugural four-nation tournament with 20 points will head on to Dubai on 15 January for the next four-day game against UAE from 20-23 January and a series of one-day games.
