Hosts Namibia have dominated Uganda in both T20I and unofficial ODI matches. Having sealed the T20I series 3-0, they won the 1st unofficial ODI by 96 runs and took a 1-0 lead in the series. They are looking very strong at moment and are the favorites to win this match.

After the humiliating defeat in the T20I series, Uganda are still seeking their 1st win in this tour. Despite a century from Ronak Patel, they ended up on the losing side on the 1st unofficial ODI. They must win this match to level the series, as otherwise, they suffer one more series defeat.

Jean-Pierre Kotze, Merwe Erasmus (c), Stephan Baard, Ronak Patel (vc), Kenneth Waiswa, Riazat Ali Shah, JJ Smit, Dinesh Nakrani, Ruben Trumpelmann, Michael Van Lingen, Henry Senyondo

NAM vs UGA Risky Captaincy Choices:

Michael Van Lingen scored an impressive half-century and remained unbeaten on 56* runs from 46 balls, coming down the order. It will be a bit risky to make him a captain since he is a lower-order batsman.

Riazat Ali Shah batted quite well for his 32 runs from 61 balls in the last game, coming at number 7. He can be promoted up the order in the next match and he is a risky captaincy choice.

Player you should avoid:

Arnold Otwani is not in the greatest of forms at the moment with the bat. He managed to score only 2 runs in the last game and has scored 30 runs in the T20I series. He should be avoided while making your fantasy teams.
