Uganda lost her final ICC World Cricket league Division 3 match to the USA, and have been relegated to the Fourth Division in 2018.

Oman and Canada will play the final tomorrow and have been promoted to Division 2, while United States grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat, and together with Singapore, will remain in this division.

Oman’s rise is spectacular, having been relegated to Division Five in 2014 while Canada had a Ugandan input, coach Henry Osinde (file photo below) having guided them back to Division 2.

Osinde is a Ugandan-born cricketer who played at Busoga College Mwiri in Jinja before moving to Canada after struggling to keep a national team place.
