Learn more about the Uganda T20 World Cup squad 2024 & Uganda T20 World Cup 2024 fixtures list in detail below so you can find out what to expect from this emerging team.

Key batters such as Roger Mukasa and Ronak Patel are expected to anchor the batting lineup. Mukasa’s experience and Patel’s aggressive batting style will be essential in setting competitive totals or chasing down targets. Their ability to handle pressure and play spin bowling effectively will be significant, especially on pitches that favor slow bowlers.

Uganda’s spin resources are robust, featuring seasoned campaigners like Frank Nsubuga and Henry Ssenyondo. Nsubuga’s off-spin and Ssenyondo’s left-arm spin could prove crucial in middle overs, where controlling the run flow and taking wickets often slows down the opposition’s momentum. Their experience in varying their pace and flight could confuse batsmen unfamiliar with their styles.

Uganda’s team management seems to have crafted a well-rounded squad that could leverage its strengths while mitigating any apparent weaknesses, particularly in high-pressure scenarios. 

Complete Squad:

Brian Masaba (c), Simon Ssesazi, Roger Mukasa, Cosmas Kyewuta, Dinesh Nakrani, Fred Achelam, Kenneth Waiswa, Alpesh Ramjani, Frank Nsubuga, Henry Ssenyondo, Bilal Hassun, Robinson Obuya, Riazat Ali Shah (vc), Juma Miyaji, Ronak Patel.

Travelling Reserves: Innocent Mwebaze, Ronald Lutaaya
