UgCricket brings you the quote unquote from a weekend with some thrilling action and lots of drama.
Yes! Yes! This is Cricket!! This is Cricket!!!
An overly excited Marvin Kibuukamusoke after Tornado Bees CC wicket keeper Fred Acelam had taken the catch of the last Kutchi Tigers CC wicket to in the 14 run win.
“Like is said, the pirates guys are far more experienced. So what we tried from that game is to try and do the small things properly. Field well, bowl well and try to bat all our overs. I wasn’t about the victory. The boys also for the first time were put under immense pressure. They have never had to deal with a 240 score, let alone with a person who is mature like Joshua. So they were in the best school of cricket. We probably learned more last game than in all the previous games combined.”
Nyakasura Coach Ivan Thawithemwira after the big defeat to Kampala Pirates CC
“Seen! Tukutereeyo akatimba? Loosely translated as “Senior, should we put out the net for throw downs?”
Cricket fan Alan Ssemakula teasing Benjamin Musoke after Aziz Damani bowled Patidar out for 37 runs; in relation to his habit of taking throw downs after the short matches Damani have been having due to bowling sides out for paltry scores.
“Finally! Off The Mark!”

“Yes! You also feel the umpire, you were very happy in the morning… feel it now”
Tornado Bees Top Honcho Peter Mukisa seatedcin the Entebbe Pavillion to the Kutchi Tigers fans when decisions seemed not to be going their way.
“You fail to take direct catches and now you want to start quarreling for things which are not clear? hmmm”
Tornado Bees chairman William Kibuukamusoke after his players showed frustration for an unclear catch on the wicket off a spinner that was not given out having dropped Jitendra Gorasiya at mid off on a dolly an over earlier.
“These Tornado Bees guys, you can’t beat them easily, they are tough, they fight to the end”

“This is not right, it is just not right”

“Ahh. I did not touch that ball, I swear, I did not knick it, I did not edge it”
Shem Obado walks around the pavilion in disbileif after he was given out for a ball he believes he did not edge.
“Ah!!, I had to run away, Pressure! Every one calling me, what is score, who is out who is wining, apaana… I had to leave and come back to Kampala. I told Mandela, i have my 5k, lets fuel the bike and move!”
Tornado Bees fan Jimmy Opara who lost it after countless phone calls from cricket fans in Kampala trying to follow the Entebbe game
“Imagine 41/1 and then 61-all out”
Nile C.C Vice Captain Martin Ondeko 29(57) could not believe the Nile C.C collapse.
“After slightly over five years without playing and with the high cricket standards in Uganda I didn’t expect a smooth come back. So I took my net sessions seriously to ensure I am totally ready for the challenge…and lo it has paid off. The is nothing more satisfying like scoring mob runs and making bowlers struggle to get your wicket. My goal is to help my team move to div 2. I must say am enjoying the current form that God has blessed me with”
Kampala Pirates CC Joshua Mwanja after scoring a century in his comeback season.
“Now let us go and drink Beer!!”
Tornado Bees C.C Captain Jeremy Kibuukamusoke a re-known teetotaler makes a threat he clearly will never fulfill at the end of his side’s win against Kutchi Tigers C.C
