West Indies 0/0 in 0.0 Overs | WI vs UGA Live Score, T20 World Cup 2024: West Indies opt to bat against Uganda

West Indies vs Uganda T20 World Cup Live Score: West Indies skipper Rovman Powell won the toss and decided to bat first against Uganda in Guyana.

The West Indies will look to overcome their batting vulnerabilities when they face Uganda at the Grand Prairie Stadium. Despite being favorites, the West Indies barely scraped past Papua New Guinea in their opening match, chasing a modest target of 137.

On a challenging pitch, the West Indies’ batting lineup struggled, playing recklessly and finding themselves at 97/5 with just four overs remaining. It took a composed performance from Roston Chase (42 not out) and Andre Russell (15 not out) to guide them to a five-wicket victory.

Key players for the West Indies include Nicholas Pooran, who has been their standout batter recently, and bowlers Alzarri Joseph and Akeal Hosein, who impressed in the previous match with early breakthroughs. The team is expected to be cautious, especially with their batting approach, against a spirited Uganda side.

Uganda, fresh from a morale-boosting win over Papua New Guinea, will look to capitalize on any West Indies slip-ups. Their captain Brian Masaba, along with key players Cosmas Kyewuta and Dinesh Nakrani, will be crucial in their bid to cause an upset.
