Uganda 114/9 Italy 91/10
If Uganda has a chance to win a match and get back their confidence in the ongoing International Cricket Council (ICC) World Twenty20 Qualifiers, then it’s going to be Italy at the Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium Oval today.
Italy would be probably the weakest of the opponents coach Johan Rudolph’s men can face in Group A after opening two defeats to hosts UAE and Hong Kong. Uganda would need to focus on their batting to register a second consecutive win over the Italians after a 23-run win during the ICC Division III World Cricket League in Bermuda in May.
Italy would like to continue their winning form and win this encounter. Coming good on Points Table would help them pose a mental pressure on their future opponents, fourth in Group A with two points in as many matches while Uganda is pointless.
