WI vs UGA Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

West Indies and Uganda go head to head in Providence on Saturday evening in Match 18 of the 2024 T20 World Cup. This Group C clash sees both sides looking to get their second win of the competition although West Indies have only played one match. Read on as we preview this fixture. The game begins in Guyana at 20:30 local time on June 8th.

Getting home with 5 wickets and 6 balls remaining against PNG was considered as not quite performing at the highest of their ability but West Indies will be happy to have got the win. They should have too much quality for his Ugandan side also.

There will be a real feel-good factor in the Ugandan squad after their win over PNG! Particularly after being so well beaten by Afghanistan in their opening match but the reality is that West Indies are likely to test them throughout this game with bat and ball.

WI vs UGA Match Toss Prediction

We have seen two victories by the team fielding first and one huge winning margin for the team batting first so far from the three games at the Providence Stadium in this T20 World Cup. With the weather drying as the night progresses, we predict that both captains will want to bat first.

WI vs UGA Pitch Report

There is certainly some turn for the spinners in Providence but there is also consistency of pace and bounce so all batters should be able to trust their shot-making. Whoever bats first in this match will be looking to post a total of over 180.

Guyana Weather Report

The forecast is for very humid conditions throughout this game in Providence. There is a slight chance of rain earlier on but then the second half of the game will be dry with the temperature up at 28 degrees.

West Indies Team News & Playing 11

WI Team News

It was a tough workout with both bat and ball for West Indies against PNG but they have benefited from it and the players will be expected to post another victory in this game. With no injuries reported, we anticipate Rovman Powell announcing the same XI.

WI Key Players

  • Nicholas Pooran- the left-handed 28 year old had already hit two sixes before he was dismissed for 27 against PNG. He is a real match-winner in this format.
  • Brandon King- the opener will always look to take the attack to the opposition bowlers and this will be no different after he made 34 runs from 29 balls.
  • Andre Russell- the bowling all-rounder showed all of his experience by picking up wickets with a cross seamed delivery and a yorker in the first game.
  • Akeal Hosein- the spinner is expected to open the bowling once again in this match and he will look to get through his overs quickly and bowling a tight line.

WI Team Form

The win over PNG means that West Indies come into this match after five victories in a row.

Brandon King, Johnson Charles, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Roston Chase, Rovman Powell (c), Sherfane Rutherford, Andre Russell, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie

Uganda Team News & Playing 11

UGA Team News

It was no surprise to see Uganda make three changes after their heavy defeat in their opening match against Afghanistan. Juma Miyagi, Frank Nsubuga and Kenneth Waiswa came into the side and all three are expected to stay in the XI for this clash.

UGA Key Players

  • Roger Musaka – the experienced opener has made two ducks so far in the tournament. However, he hit an unbeaten half-century in a warm-up game and his team need him to find his form.
  • Riazat Ali Shah- batting at number four, the right-hander hit over 20 runs more than any other batter in the side against PNG. He will be looking forward to batting on this pitch again in this match.
  • Cosmas Kyewuta- the 22 year old medium pacer has bowled very accurately so far in the T20 World Cup 2024. He finished off the match by taking the final wicket against PNG.
  • Frank Nsubuga- the 43 year old off-spinner produced a dream T20 World Cup debut in the last match when he bowled two maidens and finished with figures of 2/4. 

UGA Team Form

Uganda come into this match looking for their fourth win from their last six fixtures in this format.

Although Uganda did get the win over PNG, they were not at all convincing and they have vastly less depth or talent than West Indies. We have the hosts as the top side.

🏆 West Indies vs Uganda Prediction

After USA beat Pakistan on Thursday afternoon in Dallas, West Indies should be wary of approaching Uganda too lightly ahead of this match. But if West Indies play to anywhere near their ability, we expect an easy win for the ‘Men in Maroon’. We predict Uganda will struggle with the bat and we are backing West Indies to win.
