UAE U19 are set to lock horns with Uganda U19 in the Plate Quarter-Final 1 of the ICC Under-19 World Cup at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain in Trinidad, on January 25, 2022.

The UAE, led by Alishan Sharafu, made a brilliant start to their campaign after they defeated Canada by 49 runs in their first Group A match. But two back-to-back losses meant they finished third in the points table and failed to qualify for the quarterfinals.

Bangladesh defeated them by nine wickets (DLS Method) in their previous match. After being put in to bat first in the rain-curtailed match, UAE were bowled out for 148. Thereafter, the Junior Tigers tracked down the target in 24.5 overs.

Meanwhile, Uganda, led by Pascal Murungi, finished bottom in Group B with a disastrous net run rate of -3.240. In their previous game on Saturday, Uganda slumped to a heavy 326-run loss at the hands of India at the Brian Lara Stadium.

After being sent in, India scored 405 for five on the back of Angkrish Raghuvanshi's 144 and Raj Bawa's unbeaten 162.

Skipper Murungi picked up three wickets for Uganda. The captain also top-scored for his team with 34, but Uganda were bowled out for 79.
