Bermuda Hang On To Clinch Narrow Win Over Uganda

Bermuda held on to beat Uganda by seven runs in a tight encounter in Nairobi, a match held as part of their warm up for the Intercontinental clash with Kenya.

Bermuda, playing their first one-day game since the 2007 World Cup in the Caribbean, had Janeiro Tucker to thank for getting them to a total of 231 for 7 from their 50 overs, with Tucker contributing an unbeaten 59.

Stephen Outerbridge (34), Jekon Edness (41), and James Celestine (35) had given Bermuda a solid start before three wickets for three runs halted their effort.

Half-centuries from Nandikoshore Patel (84) and Danniel Ruyange (50) kept Uganda in the game before Kevin Hurdle, with four for 40 helped put the brakes on and Uganda's tail-enders were unable to reach their target.
