Watch cricket video highlights of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 eighteenth match between West Indies vs Uganda. Venue of the match will be Providence.

Using his swinging seam-up throw to devastating effect, Akeal Hosein ripped through Uganda in his outstanding first session, taking five wickets for 11 runs. On a sluggish Providence deck, the spell sent West Indies racing to a 134-run triumph. In support of Hosein’s stint, the seamers produced some outstanding wicket balls of their own. They together sent Uganda reeling, scoring 39 all out, which was tied for the lowest total in the T20 World Cup.

Earlier, the West Indies battled their way to 173 for 5, paced by Johnson Charles’ 44 off 42 and Andre Russell’s 30 not out off 17. These were tough batting conditions. Despite at least two wasted opportunities, Uganda was typically strong on the field and tenacious with the ball. Despite the fact that a number of West Indies hitters got off to starts, Uganda’s slow bowlers in particular managed to hold them back.

It was a dream magic. From the opening ball, a left-arm spinner’s stock ball, ragging past Roger Mukasa’s outside edge, it was evident that Hosein would obtain strong turn when he decided to put revs into the ball. But Hosein’s greatest weapon in this game was his flawless control and drift/swing ability. Mukasa was hit with a seam-up ball next, which curled in and collided with the sweeping batter in front of the middle and off. The ball that hit Alpesh Ramjani in front of midfield in the subsequent over had likewise traveled late in the air.

The swinging seam-up ball struck possibly Uganda’s finest batsman, Riazat Ali Shah, even more forcefully, seeing it crash into middle stump. Then, employing movement in the air before pitching, Hosein removed Dinesh Nakrani and Kenneth Waiswa in his last over, the seventh of the innings, with the first being bowled and the second being out for a leg before wicket. With all their batting resources expended and no chance of even matching their previous lowest total of 58 against Afghanistan last week, he left Uganda struggling at 23 for 7.

Although a Charles innings isn’t often described as an anchor, that’s exactly what it was in this particular game. Even though he started the powerplay with a few fours past cover and eventually worked his way up to several sixes, he finished with just 24 off 21 balls. However, by keeping him at the crease, other batters were able to play with greater aggression; the majority of the West Indies top order simply waited for balls to come into their area before hitting sixes. The largest of the day was scored by Rovman Powell, who sent a 107-meter rocket off Frank Nsubuga’s bowling over the top of a stand.

The fact that the West Indies failed to score a six after the fourteenth over speaks much about the quality of this surface and the persistence of Uganda’s bowlers. Nevertheless, Russell and Sherfane Rutherford managed to supply the last surge to the West Indies. Russell utilized this technique most skillfully in the penultimate over, hitting Cosmas Kyewuta for two fours through point and then hitting a couple more boundaries off the outside edge. West Indies hit 45 runs in total off the final four overs.
