Stephen Tikolo has chosen not to renew his contract with Uganda Cricket Association. His contract was due for renewal and negotiations have been ongoing with Steve to stay with us especially after the success in Oman in December 2019.
Unfortunately, he has made a personal decision not to extend his stay with us despite our interest to continue with the relationship. He leaves the National Cricket team in a good place with the team currently on top of the Cricket World Cup Challenge League B.
Stephen Tikolo has been with the team for three and half years since he joined in 2016 and his influence on the team has been immense. He oversaw the process of introduction of new players in the side, who have improved our performance on the global stage.
He is also credited with winning the ICC World Cricket League Division 4 tournament in Malaysia in 2018. We would like to thank Stephen for his dedication and professionalism and to wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
In the interim, the team will be handled by Davis Turinawe- a former cricket cranes and Under 19 Coach. The process of hiring a new coach will commence soon and should have the position filled by the end of February 2020.
