They say hard work pays. So spend time sowing and you will bear fruit.
Perhaps that was Ugandan cricketer Arthur Kyobe’s motto. After two months of a dry runs spell, the lad hit a maiden century for his club Passage to India to win the man-of-match award on Friday.
“Its just hard work everyday and praying to God,” Kyobe told Kawowo Sports on phone from Muscat.
Of course there are so many challenges with adapting to the conditions away from home and Kyobe is steadily gaining the rhythm.
“I am quickly getting used to the hot weather here and making friends,” he said.
He is with countrymate Asadu Sseyiga, who was rested for the game over the weekend.
Kyobe notched 104 runs off 126 balls as his team set 280 for 9 in 50 overs but unfortunately lost the thriller by two wickets and only four balls to spare to Al Turuki Cricket Club. Kyobe is expected to join the Bermuda-bound national team in January.
“I am picking so many lessons here and i hope to keep fit and return to Kampala in high gear.”
