AFG vs UGA Match Preview

Uganda is set to make history as they will make their maiden appearance in the T20 World Cup. Their first match will be against Afghanistan, a team with considerable experience in ICC events. Afghanistan will be captained by Rashid Khan, while Uganda will be led by Brian Masaba.

In their sole warm-up match, Afghanistan triumphed over Scotland by 55 runs. On the other hand, Uganda's warm-up game against Scotland was washed out but they managed to play against Namibia. The World Cup newcomers scored 134 runs in their 20 overs, with notable contributions from Roger Musaka, who hit a half-century, and Robinson Obuya, who scored 38 runs off 27 balls. Left-arm spinner Henry Ssenyondo impressed with two wickets in three overs but in the end succumbed to a five-wicket loss.

Venue and Pitch

Providence Stadium in Guyana is known for its balanced pitch, providing opportunities for both batters and bowlers to shine. Bowlers benefit from the atmospheric conditions and scoring becomes increasingly difficult, suggesting that the pitch gradually favours the spinners as well. The team winning the toss might elect to field first, with a total of around 160 expected to be a par score. 

Weather Updates

The maximum temperature is expected to be around 28°C with slight chances of rain in the forecast.
