Rashid Khan brings order back into Ugandan cricket as they are dismissed for just 58 runs in their inaugural World Cup match.

Fazalhaq Farooqi to Robinson Obuya. On a length and angling in, Obuya attempts to cut away but receives an edge which heads towards first slip fielder Gulbadin Naib and eventually through Dinesh Nakrani to keeper Dinesh Nakrani for six wickets and give Afghanistan a six wicket advantage.

Alps Ramjani joins Robinson Obuya in the middle, taking one single off Naveen-ul-Haq to end the Powerplay at 21/5. Afghan bowlers have been dominant from the outset; it will be interesting to see whether this pair manages to stay afloat as their chase progresses.Afghanistan Vs Uganda

Afghanistan have scored an 183 for 5 in 20 overs after Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran carved through Ugandan bowlers with two powerful 70s each to set their side off, leaving only Cosmos Kyewuta and Brian Masaba among their Ugandan bowlers capable of maintaining momentum after opening batsmen had fallen; both picked up two wickets while bowling economically.Afghanistan Vs Uganda

Afghanistan Vs Uganda 3. Naveen-ul-Haq (wk)

Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmanullah Gurbaz took full advantage of the excellent batting conditions to open quickly, scoring several boundaries during their powerplay session – with Zadran notching four and Gurbaz adding two.

Uganda had briefly come back into contention with two wickets from Cosmas Kyewuta and Brian Masaba before their collapse. Cosmas Kyewuta and Masaba appeared to have given Uganda hope; however, due to poor shot selection from Ugandan players combined with outstanding bowling from Afghanistan bowlers as well as poor field discipline Afghanistan quickly put away the game early.

Naveen-ul-Haq to Alpesh Ramjani, Out! EDGED AND GONE! Naveen-ul-Haq pitches the ball slightly fuller around off. Ramjani attempts a drive and gets a thick outside edge toward first slip that Gulbadin Naib takes an easy catch from. Uganda are in trouble as Robinson Obuya comes in as number seven batsman.

Afghanistan batsmen have taken control of this match, starting off with Rahmanullah Gurbaz and Ibrahim Zadran’s opening stand of 154 runs – second highest ever seen at T20 World Cup history.

7.1: From Alpesh Ramjani to Ibrahim Zadran: Short and outside off with extra pace applied and an angle towards Zadran; Zadran remains vigilant as Ramjani plays him short towards midwicket region for one run.

Uganda will look to score a respectable total in their remaining overs, though good batting conditions were always likely. Their captain Brian Masaba and Cosmas Kyewuta played their parts by picking up two wickets each.

Afghanistan Vs Uganda 5. Rashid Khan

Afghanistan made a stunning start to their World Cup campaign by defeating Uganda by 125 runs with an uncompromising performance from both bat and ball, led by Fazalhaq Farooqi’s blistering batting which reduced them to 18/5 while Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Naveen-ul-Haq contributed with wickets as well.

Ibrahim Zadran and Rahmanullah Gurbaz had an opening wicket partnership of 154 runs before Gurbaz was dismissed by Cosmas Kyewuta for 20. After this wicket fell, however, the lower middle order collapsed like a pack of cards until eventually bowled out for just 58 runs.

Alpesh Ramjani took the final wicket with a deceptively subtle googly that caught Henry Ssenyondo napping in his crease. Pitch at fuller length around off, it burst through and struck off stump. Naveen-ul-Haq then followed up by scoring two runs quickly in his next over.
