Uganda’s Frank Nsubuga will be the oldest player at next month’s T20 World Cup in the United States of America and West Indies.

Nsubuga, who has been capped 54 times in T20I cricket, is 43 years old.

“Playing at the T20 World Cup when I am about to retire is something exciting for me. I have been putting in the yards, so it’s the hard work that has led me here,” NBS Sport quoted Nsubuga as saying.

Uganda qualified for the 2024 T20 World Cup ahead of Zimbabwe. They will accompany fellow African countries Namibia and South Africa at the tournament.

“The world will know about Ugandan cricket, but it will also see the country take the game deep into the villages for its growth,” added Nsubuga.

Eight of Nsubuga’s 54 T20Is have been played against Kenya – and nine each against Tanzania and Rwanda.

My best moment was playing against Kenya and my catch against Collins Obuya. Also, qualifying for the T20 World Cup was very good for the group,” concluded Nsubuga.
