Frank Nsubuga, a name that resonates in the world of cricket, has carved a niche for himself with his exceptional skills and enduring passion for the sport. Born on August 28, 1980, in Nsambia, Nsubuga’s cricketing journey began at the tender age of 16 when he was introduced to the game by Sam Walusimbi, a patron of Wanderers Cricket Club and arguably Uganda’s greatest cricketer.

Uganda’s Frank Nsubuga’s cricketing journey

Nsubuga’s cricketing career took off when he made his international debut playing for East and Central Africa in the 1997 ICC Trophy. Over the years, he has played 54 T20Is, picking up 55 wickets at an economy rate of 4.79. His career also includes seven first-class matches and fifty-two List-A matches.

An off-spinning allrounder, Nsubuga’s swashbuckling knocks in the lower middle order complement his miserly bowling. He has steered his team to victory in several matches, including the World Cricket League final against Argentina.

At 43 years old, he is set to make history as the oldest player in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. This achievement is not just a personal milestone for Nsubuga but also a source of immense pride for Uganda.

The T20 World Cup 2024 is a significant event for Nsubuga and the Uganda cricket team. Despite the challenges, Nsubuga’s experience and leadership will be crucial for the team as they face formidable opponents on the world stage.

Nsubuga’s participation in the T20 World Cup 2024 is not just about personal glory; it’s about inspiring a new generation of cricketers in Uganda. His journey from a cricket-loving teenager to a seasoned international player signifies his enduring passion and dedication to the sport.
