Kenya will square off against Uganda in the 5th match of Group 'B' of the 2019 CWC Challenge League on Thursday, December 5 at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Oman. The match will commence at 11:00 AM (IST).
Kenya has been playing cricket for so many years now but have not been able to establish themselves yet at the highest level. They lost their last match against Italy by 4 wickets. They are placed at the fifth position on the points table. Kenya will look to secure a win here and get back to winning ways. A loss here will hamper their chances of progressing to the next round.
On the other hand, Uganda have not had much exposure but they are progressing fast. Kenya cannot afford to take their neighbours lightly as they beat Jersey by 25 runs in their opening fixture. Uganda will look to carrying the winning momentum forward and bag two points.
