It seems that the wickets are seam friendly over there. Another test of adaptability for our players.

RI is doing a good job at TC. Already the site is a lot more attractive. Thanks TC for the score update in the first match.

Paki coach thinks using white balls also making lots of difference -
[quote]The only downside for Rana was the fact his bowlers gifted so many extras to the opposition.

"The boys are used to bowling with the red ball that does not swing as much as the white one," he said.

"Looking at the scorecards of other matches it is a problem all the bowlers are facing and we try to work with the boys to alter the way they hold the ball.

"But they are U/19 and they are bound to make mistakes," he added.

Uganda coach Sam Walusimbi felt the loss of the toss had not helped his side but he also admitted they batted disappointingly.

"We would have fielded as the pitch was green, the ball seamed around and their seamers got the main wickets but we did not bat well and we should have done better," he said.
