We are in the business end of the Uganda T20I Tri-Series and it will be Uganda taking on Kenya in the penultimate league stage fixture on Wednesday, September 15 at Entebbe Oval.
Kenya have had a fabulous run in this series. They have won three games out of their four fixtures, with one game being abandoned due to rain. After no play was possible in the curtain-raiser, Kenya got the better of Uganda in the second game of the series.
They followed the 22-run win over Uganda with a thumping 8-wicket win over Nigeria, a side which was no match for the prowess that Kenya possessed. In their previous game against Nigeria, the Kenyans secured a comfortable 61-run win to retain their spot at the top of the points table.
Uganda, on the other hand, has not been able to get the better of Kenya so far. They will face the Kenyans in the final of the series and will be looking to snare a win here in order to gain a psychological advantage going into the trophy match.
They have won two encounters, both of which were against Nigeria. The first victory was an 8-wicket result and they followed it up with a 56-run win. Uganda will be coming into this contest on the back of a win and will look to get a positive result against Kenya, who will be playing their second encounter of the day and might be fatigued.
