Uganda Cricket Association will have a new CEO after Martin Ondeko leaves the role he has been serving in for the last three years.

Ondeko has been with Uganda Cricket Association for over 13 years, three of those have been as CEO.

He joined Uganda Cricket Association as an administrator before becoming Operations Manager and then taking the CEO mantle from Justine Ligyalingi. He was a diligent servant of the game as a player, having featured for the U-19 team at the 2004 World Cup in Bangladesh and also playing for the Cricket Cranes. He then joined administration where he has served from the bottom up to the top.

In his three years as CEO, Uganda has been able to make very good ground in high performance with the Cricket Cranes being crowned champions in Rwanda in 2021 and the U-19 team managing to qualify for the World Cup after 15 years. He leaves Uganda Cricket Association in a very good place.

The recruitment for a new CEO will start immediately as Uganda has to start preparations for the Challenge League B tournament they will host in June.

Denis has represented Uganda in international cricket events including the World Cup. He is currently the captain of Wanderers Cricket Club.
