Two Time T20 World Cup champions West Indies hammered Uganda on Sunday by 134 runs to claim their second consecutive victory in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. Akeal Hosein guided the home team to the victory as he picked up a five-wicket haul in the first seven overs of the match. Uganda looked rattled through the spell and had no way to counter him as the associate nation eventually surrendered to the joint lowest team total in the history of the Tournament.

Opting to bat first, West Indies were quiet in the first two overs before Johnson Charles switched to attacking mindset and was shortly joined by Nicholas Pooran, Who Smashed three quick sixes. Uganda struck at regular intervals, with none of the Caribbean batters managing to score big or get a fifty, Uganda pulled impressive bowling in the death overs. Still, the target of 174 seemed hefty on the Guyana surface.

In reply, Uganda went six down for just 22 runs in the first 37 balls of the innings, with Hosein picking five wickets. Alzari Joseph pocketed the lower order as the visitors succumbed to just 39 runs in 12 overs. Hosein’s 5 for 11 is now the best bowling figure for any Caribbean bowler in T20 World Cup history, Leaving Samual Badree’s 4/15 against Bangladesh in Mirpur 20214 behind.
