West Indies will lock horns against Uganda in the 18th match of the Men’s World Cup 2024 at Providence Stadium on June 9, 2024. 

The West Indies have entered the tournament as favourites and will enter the match with high confidence as they defeated Papua New Guinea in their last encounter in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. With a blend of experience and talent in their squad, West Indies is expected to deliver a strong performance against Uganda. 

On the other hand, Uganda enters the match with newfound confidence following their historic victory against Papua New Guinea. 

Uganda bowlers have performed well with significant contributions from Alpesh Ramjani, Cosmas Kyewuta, Juma Miyagi, and Frank Nsubuga, who showcased their prowess by restricting the opposition to a low total. 

However, the batters need to step up against WI, to stabilise the innings and set up a competitive total.

So ahead, of this highly-anticipated match between WI Vs UGN, let's take a look at how the pitch is expected to behave at the Providence Stadium in Guyana. 

Providence Stadium Guyana Pitch Report

The pitch at the Providence Stadium is known for its balanced nature, offering fair competition between bat and ball. Fast bowlers find initial assistance with atmospheric conditions conducive to swing and seam movement, while spinners tend to come into play as the match progresses.

It's always been a typically slow surface, with assistance from the spinners. So bowling first could have its advantages. Going by the slowness of the wicket, chasing could prove equally challenging. 

The pitch has favoured the spinners and assisted the pacers in the matches that have taken place in the T20 World Cup 2024. This trend is expected to continue in the upcoming match between WI and UGN on June 9.
