Match Highlights

West Indies skipper Rovman Powell won the toss and opted to bat first.

The Powerplay saw Brandon King and Johnson Charles step up the scoring rate before King was out to the left-arm spinner Alpesh Ramjani.

This brought Nicholas Pooran to the crease, who hit two sixes early on in his innings.

Uganda’s Frank Nsubuga and Brian Masaba bowled with control and discipline, the latter also accounting for Pooran, but the West Indies batters made the most of the odd bad ball and dispatched a number of boundaries in the middle overs.

Uganda had a big break when they dismissed big-hitting Powell in the 16th over.

Big hits from all-rounder Andre Russell helped West Indies add 45 runs in the final four overs.

In the run chase, West Indies were all over the Uganda batters with the ball early. Akeal Hosein led the charge with three wickets in his three overs, even as Romario Shepherd and Andre Russell were among wickets as well.

Akeal added fourth and fifth wickets in his remarkable spell during the seventh over, getting his first-ever T20I five-for in the process. Alzarri Joseph and Gudakesh Motie added their names to the wicket-pickers name in the coming overs, as Uganda batters found it tough in trying circumstances.

Uganda were bowled out for just 39 in 12 overs.
