Welcome to! As we gear up for the 5th match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, all eyes are set on the clash between Afghanistan and Uganda. This match marks the beginning of the tournament campaign for both teams, with Afghanistan poised as the dark horse, aiming for a strong start, while Uganda seeks to capitalize on their World Cup debut.




Team Previews


Led by the dynamic Rashid Khan, Afghanistan enters the tournament with confidence. Their well-rounded team displayed commendable performance in the practice games, boasting depth in both their batting and bowling lineups. A solid opening partnership from Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Gulbadin Naib could set the tone, while the middle-order trio of Ibrahim Zadran, Azmatullah Omarzai, and Mohammad Nabi are expected to build partnerships and stabilize the innings. The lower order, featuring the likes of Karim Janat and Rashid Khan, adds valuable firepower.

On the bowling front, Afghanistan’s attack looks formidable. Mujeeb-ur-Rahman and Fazalhaq Farooqi will spearhead the new ball attack, with Rashid Khan’s variations likely to pose significant challenges for Ugandan batsmen. Naveen-ul-Haq, Nangeyalia Kharote, and Mohammad Nabi provide additional support to this potent lineup.

Brian Masaba’s squad faces a monumental task in their World Cup debut. Despite not having the same experience as their opponents, Uganda’s team is eager to make their mark. Openers Roger Mukasa and Robinson Obuya will aim to provide a strong start, while the middle order, featuring Robinson Obuya, Dinesh Nakrani, and Kenneth Waiswa, must hold the innings together. Contributions from Alpesh Ramjani and Fred Achelam in supporting roles will be crucial.

The bowling unit, which underperformed in practice, needs to step up. Cosmas Kyewuta and Juma Miyagi must exploit the new ball effectively, while Bilal Hassan, Brian Masaba, and Dinesh Nakrani need to contain the runs in the middle overs. Additionally, Alpesh Ramjani and Henry Ssenyondo’s spells will be vital to Uganda’s bowling strategy.
