West Indies Outplays Uganda In T20 WC 2024

Talking about today's match, the West Indies captain won the toss and elected to bat first this decision turned fruitful as they defeated newcomers Uganda by 134 runs in their T20 World Cup Group C match.

West Indian, left-arm spinner, Akeal Hosein was the man of the day as he scalped a five-wicket haul and made the game completely one-sided.

Making use of the familiarity with the home conditions and vital contributions from their batters West Indies put up an overall team effort to dismantle the opposition. With impactful contributions Johnson Charles (44) and Andre Russell (30 not out), they put up an impressive 173 for five on the board.

Brian Masaba was the most successful Ugandan bowler, taking two wickets for 31 runs.
