Uganda sets record low T20 World Cup score in heavy loss to West Indies | Cricket News

On Sunday, Uganda suffered the lowest score ever recorded in a Twenty20 World Cup, collapsing to 39 all out against the West Indies. This dismal performance matched the Netherlands’ record low against Sri Lanka in 2014. The Ugandan batsmen struggled against the West Indies’ varied attack, with only Juma Miyaji reaching double figures, scoring 13 from 20 deliveries.

Earlier in the day, the West Indies had their own challenges on the slow, low pitch. Opener Johnson Charles top-scored with 44 from 42 balls, including one towering six. Captain Rovman Powell contributed 22, featuring a massive six onto the top of the grandstand. The innings was anchored by Andre Russell’s unbeaten 30, which included four boundaries in the final over, pushing the West Indies to a formidable total of 173 for five.

West Indies captain Rovman Powell emphasized his team’s goal of consistent improvement following this dominant victory. “Last game we were flat, so we just wanted to improve as a team,” Powell remarked. “When you are playing at home, the pressure can sometimes get to you.” Meanwhile, Hosein accepted man-of-the-match award and said he needed this performance after struggling in previous matches while practicing his batting skills and trying to improve his game further.
