West Indies bowler Akeal Hosein starred with the ball, rattling the batting line-up of Uganda in the stiff chase of 174. The Brian Masaba-led side was bundled out for 39 as the Windies won the game by a huge margin of 134 runs. Uganda equalled the 10-year-old record for the lowest total of the Netherlands in T20 World Cups. 

Earlier, the Uganda cricket team made the West Indies work harder than expected as the tournament co-hosts posted a challenging 173 at the Guyana National Stadium on Saturday.

The West Indies were poised for a full-fledged assault near the halfway point of the inning, with Charles and Pooran at the crease. Uganda captain Brian Masaba earned the two important wickets of Nicholas Pooran and opposite number Rovman Powell with his wrist spinners, while seamers Cosmas Kyewuta and Juma Miyagi impressed with their pace and accuracy. It was left to Andre Russell with a 17-ball, unbeaten 30 to give the inning a late surge.

?Brief score: 

WI 173/5 (20) [Charles 44(42), Russell 30*(17); Masaba 2/31(4)] defeat UGA 39 (12) [Miyagi 13*(20), Obuya 6(8); Hosein 5/11(4)] by 134 runs.
