The Uganda T20 Tri-Series will kick off with a high-octane clash between Kenya and Nigeria on Thursday at the Entebbe Cricket Oval in the picturesque city of Entebbe.

Both Kenya and Nigeria will be playing their first game of the season, and will look to start on a positive note with a win. A strong performance will keep the winning team in good stead going ahead in the tournament.

Nigeria, who are winless in their last five games, will look up to their star performers Sylvester Okpe, Vincent Adewoye and Daniel Ajekun to turn their fortunes around.

Meanwhile, Kenya have a much better recent record, winning two of their last five fixtures. They will be the favourites going into this contest, something they'll look to justify with a strong performance. They will look towards Irfan Karim, Emmanuel Bundi and Shem Ngoche to get going in this tri-series.
