Preview:

Namibia are playing T20I after almost one and year. Last time when they played T20Is was in ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers back in 2019. They finished third in the Group A standings. A lot of changes have been made to their squad in the last couple of years.

Meanwhile, Uganda toured Qatar in February 2020 and lost the T20I series by a margin of 2-1. They lost to Namibia in their last meeting by 42 runs. Uganda will need to make the best use of this series and make a mark in international cricket.
