Uganda Creates History With First-Ever T20 World Cup Qualification

Uganda Creates History With First-Ever T20 World Cup Qualification

On Thursday, Uganda secured a decisive nine-wicket victory over Rwanda in an African qualifier, ensuring their participation in the upcoming T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the United States next year.

Despite Zimbabwe’s triumph over Kenya in the same qualifiers, they fell short of qualification. Uganda, the latest addition among the 20 participating teams, now joins Namibia, who had already secured their spot earlier in the week.
