Afghanistan (AFG) begin their  T20 World Cup 2024 campaign on Tuesday, June 4, as they square off against Uganda (UGA) in match No. 5 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.

Afghanistan will enter the contest as the favourites. They are making their seventh appearance in a T20 World Cup. Afghan players have played a lot of franchise cricket in recent years and are no strangers to the shortest format of the game. Their first warm-up game against Oman was washed out after the completion of one innings. In their second warm-up fixture, the Blue Tigers comprehensively defeated Scotland by 55 runs.

Uganda will have their task cut out against the experienced Afghanistan side. The African nation lost their first warm-up match against Namibia by five wickets before their second game ended without a result due to inclement weather.

Pitch Report

The Providence Stadium in Guyana has hosted 14 T20Is so far. Teams batting first have only won three games, while chasing teams have emerged victorious on eight occasions. The average score batting first is 129. The venue hosted the second match of T20 World Cup 2024 between the West Indies and Papua New Guinea. The two-time champions almost messed up in their pursuit of a 137-run target on a sluggish deck. Batting isn’t going to be easy if a similar pitch greets the two teams on Tuesday.

Probable Best Performers

Probable Best Batter: Gulbadin Naib

Gulbadin Naib has been in scintillating form with the bat in 2024. In four innings, he has scored 132 runs at an average of 44 and a strike rate of 159.03. Naib scored two fifties in the three-match T20I series against India in January. The right-handed batter smashed a 30-ball 69 in Afghanistan’s warm-up match against Scotland. If he gets going at the top, Uganda bowlers will be in for a nightmare.

Probable Best Bowler: Rashid Khan

Rashid Khan had his least productive IPL season, as he failed to make an impact in most of the matches. However, there is no doubting the class of the talismanic leg-spinner. Rashid will be looking to unleash his bag of tricks against the inexperienced Uganda batters and get his campaign off to a bright start.
