The ongoing mega ICC cricket fest T20 World Cup 2024 continues as Papua New Guinea (PNG) gear up to take on Uganda (UGA) in game 9 of the marquee tournament. Notably, both sides will lock horns at the Providence Stadium, Guyana, on Thursday, June 6. However, looking at the flip side of things, both teams are coming into the clash on the back of a loss in their previous games. 

Papua New Guinea took on the hosts West Indies in their first game of the T20 World Cup 2024, where they sustained a five-wicket loss. On the other hand, debutants Uganda took on Afghanistan in their first game but suffered a massive defeat by 125 runs. Both teams will aim to put in improved showings and register a win.
