The Uganda Cricket Cranes will need to be at their best on Wednesday to pick a win over Singapore.
Victory will improve Uganda's chances of being among the best two nations at the on-going ICC World Cricket League Division 3 Championship.

After losing to Canada by 66 runs in the opening game on Tuesday, coach Steve Tikolo go all out at the Entebbe Oval treating the game against Singapore like a final. "We cannot take chances now. We had a poor opening day, but must recover quickly and start winning," Tikolo told URN.


Team captain David Arinaitwe Karashani said they must be very cautious as they approach the second game of the competition because they cannot afford another loss.


Arthur Kyobe who did not have a good day against Canada after picking only 2 runs must also try to be at his best. Singapore already have three points after their win over Malaysia by 7 wickets on Tuesday.


Rizwan Cheema who picked 91 runs against Uganda will be out to show his supremacy with the bat when they take on Oman at the Lugogo Oval, while Malaysia battle USA at the Kyambogo Oval.


The best two teams will qualify for slots in Division 2 and also make it to the next round of the 2019 World Cup qualifiers.
