On Thursday, Nigeria will take on Uganda in the 8th match of the T20 World Cup Africa Region Qualifier. This is the 2nd time both sides are meeting in this tournament. Nigeria didn’t get the start they wanted as they lost both of their matches played against Tanzania and Uganda on the opening day of the tournament. They need to back themselves and come back strongly on Thursday.

On the other hand, Uganda lost to Kenya by a mere one-run margin in their opening game and did well to hold on to their nerves and won the 2nd game against Nigeria by 12 runs (D/L Method). They need to be more consistent in these types of short tournaments if they want to be more successful.
