She Cranes End Diamond Challenge With a Draw

Rachael Nanyonga produced a memorable show as Uganda fought hard to pick a 54 all draw against President’s XII in their last match of the 2016 Diamond league played at the University of Durban-Westville on Wednesday night.

The She Cranes were unfortunate not to return home with a single victory despite controlling three quarters of the game.

The Rashid Mubiru’s ladies hit a dozen opening a four point gap into the second quarter but later slipped to allow the South Africans to pull 16-15 win.
