Uganda qualifies for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup

Read < 1 minute

Uganda booked their place at the 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup with a nine-wicket win over Rwanda in their final Africa Region Qualifier at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek on Thursday.

Uganda bowled out Rwanda for just 65 runs and went on to reach their target in less than 10 overs, clinching a fifth win in six games that secured a first-ever appearance in an ICC World Cup event.

Uganda, who join Namibia as Africa’s representatives at the tournament, is just the fifth African country to feature in a ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

Elsewhere, Zimbabwe, the only test-playing side in the Africa Region Qualifiers, failed to qualify for the tournament following Uganda’s win.

Zimbabwe defeated Kenya by 110 runs but their efforts were in vain as they needed Uganda to lose their match to stand a chance of qualifying.

The West Indies and the United States co-host the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in June 2024.
