Scripting history, Uganda qualified to play the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 to be played in the USA and West Indies. This will be their first appearance in a senior ICC World Cup.

Uganda, one of 20 teams to be qualified for the mega tournament, have beaten Rwanda by nine wickets, ensuring a top-two finish in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Africa qualifier.

They join Namibia from the Africa qualifier in the Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, which will feature 20 teams for the first time ever.

Before today’s historic win, Uganda had clinched victories from four of their five fixtures, beating Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Kenya, only slipping against co-qualifiers, Namibia, who remain unbeaten in the tournament so far.

In their all-important match against Rwanda today, Uganda’s Alpesh Ramjani, Brian Masaba, Henry Ssenyondo and Dinesh Nakrani took two wickets each to bundle out their opposition for 65 in 18.5 overs, after putting them in to bat first.

They chased down their target in 8.1 overs, with 71 balls to spare, thanks to solid batting from Simon Ssesazi (26 from 21 deliveries), Ronak Patel (18 off 20) and Roger Mukasa (13 off 8).

The final list of qualified teams for the event is as follows: Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, Canada, England, India, Ireland, Namibia, Nepal, Netherlands, New Zealand, Oman, Pakistan, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Scotland, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Uganda, United States of America (USA) and West Indies.
