The playoff to secure 13th place in the ICC Under 19 World Cup 2022 will see Uganda (UGA) take on Scotland (SCO) at the Diego Martin Sporting Complex Stadium in Trinidad on Sunday.
Uganda have lost their first four group matches and were placed at the bottom of the points table. In their last game, they tasted their first victory in the tournament. They defeated Papua New Guinea by 35 runs in a low-scoring game, thanks to their bowlers, who kept their nerves in check and successfully defended the total.
Meanwhile, Scotland are still searching for their first win in the tournament as they lost their first four matches in a row and their last match was canceled due to COVID-19 cases.
