Namibia are all set to host Uganda for a limited-overs series. The five-match T20I series, which is set to kick off on April 8, will be followed by a two-match ODI series. All games will be held at the United Cricket Club Ground in Windhoek.

Last year, Uganda were whitewashed by Namibia in a three-match T20I series. The Ugandan side will be hoping for a much-improved performance in the upcoming few days.

Namibia's most recent assignment was against Ireland Wolves. They beat the Wolves by a 2-1 margin in a T20I series while the one-day series was drawn 2-2.

Gerhard Erasmus will continue to lead the Namibian side and will be looking to carry forward the form in the T20I series against Uganda.

Uganda, on the other hand, haven’t had much game-time of late. They will be returning to international action in the upcoming T20I series and will be hoping to kickstart the series on a positive note.

Brian Masaba has been handed the responsibility of leading the side, with Deusdedit Muhumuza his deputy.
