Uganda’s bowling attack capitalized on PNG’s fragile batting display. Four Ugandan bowlers picked up two wickets apiece, effectively dismantling the PNG innings.

This match presents a crucial opportunity for both teams in Group C. Both Uganda and Papua New Guinea are searching for their first win in the tournament. Uganda suffered a heavy defeat to Afghanistan in their opening match, while PNG fell short against the West Indies.

With a modest target to chase, Uganda will be confident of securing their first victory. However, PNG will be desperate to bounce back and avoid another setback in the competition.
