Venue: Entebbe Cricket Oval, Entebbe, Uganda
The pitch is on the slower side with the batsmen having to work hard for their runs. There is ample help on offer for the pacers, who should get the ball to swing around in the powerplay overs. As the match progresses, spin will also play a role, making it difficult for the batsmen in the middle overs. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 120 being par at the venue.
