Pitch:

The 22 yards at Entebbe Cricket Oval provide a somewhat neutral playing field, but the conditions are advantageous to bowlers over batters. Pacers in particular benefit from the conditions, and a score in the 130s can be deemed a competitive one on this wicket.

Weather:

With light winds, humidity at 80%, and the temperature expected to be around 25°C, the conditions are favorable for a game of cricket. The overhead will be partly cloudy; however, the chances of rain are minimal.

Fantasy playing XI:
