Namibia will take on Uganda in the first T20I of the Uganda Tour of Namibia at the United Club Cricket Ground in Windhoek on Friday.
The last time these two sides took on each other last year, Namibia completely destroyed Uganda. They recorded a 3-0 clean sweep over their opponents during that series and also went on to win two unofficial ODIs.
They will be confident of picking up another series win as they've been making plenty of strides in international cricket.
Uganda, meanwhile, are experienced in international cricket and although they didn't enjoy much success on their previous tour of Namibia, they will be hoping that things go differently this time around.
They last played a T20I against Kenya in November 2021.
