Uganda sets record low T20 World Cup score in heavy loss to West Indies | Cricket News

The West Indies have set a new benchmark for the largest winning margin in T20 World Cup history, after beating Uganda by 134 runs on Sunday. This victory came after a slow start, with the West Indies scoring only 173 for five after winning the toss and electing to bat. However, their batsmen struggled against Uganda’s varied attack, with only one player reaching double figures.

Uganda’s innings crumbled almost immediately, with Roger Mukasa being dismissed lbw by Akeal Hosein off the second ball. The rest of the Ugandan batsmen struggled against the West Indies’ bowling, with Juma Miyaji scoring just 13 from 20 deliveries. Hosein was the standout performer, claiming five wickets for just 11 runs in his four overs.

Despite their poor performance on Sunday, Uganda’s captain Rovman Powell emphasized that their goal is to improve as a team. “Last game we were flat,” he said. “We just wanted to improve as a team.” Meanwhile, Hosein accepted the man-of-the-match award and said that he needed this win to prove his worth. “In the nets and in the previous series, I felt the ball was coming out good but I was just not getting the rewards,” he said.

The West Indies will now head to Trinidad for their next match against New Zealand on Wednesday, while Uganda will need to regroup and reassess their strategies following this historic low point in T20 World Cup history.
