NZ VS UGA Pitch Report

We saw 18 wickets at the Brian Lara Stadium in the previous match, and we expect the bowlers to get a lot of help on this pitch in this one as well. In this match, whoever bats first will aim to score at least 160.

Trinidad Weather Report

Although there is a 20% chance of rain earlier in the day, Tarouba appears to have a dry evening during the match.

NZ VS UGA Betting Tips

Glenn Phillips leads New Zealand’s batting in this competition and is our top pick for the team’s highest run scorer. Trent Boult, a strong bowler, is expected to excel against Uganda’s highest run scorer against New Zealand, Simon Ssesazi, the keeper-batsman, is well worth backing with over 2000 T20I runs. Brian Masaba is Uganda’s top wicket taker in this match because he has taken five wickets at the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Trent Boult is too great a bowler for a portion of the world’s ideal and we anticipate that he should have a simple undertaking against Uganda. He is our pick to take the most wickets for New Zealand in this match.

Expert Predictions for the New Zealand vs Uganda T20 World Cup Showdown

NZ Team News 

Prior to their match with the West Indies, New Zealand made three changes to their XI following their disastrous performance against Afghanistan. We anticipate that the three new players—Rachin Ravindra, Tim Southee, and James Neesham—will all keep their positions for this match.

UGA Team News 

Before their big loss to the West Indies, Brian Musaba said that the team would stay the same. Although there will be a push to give some new players a chance, Uganda’s team management will know that players could be mentally scarred if they lose another big game. There are no wounds in the crew.

NZ Team Form

New Zealand is struggling a lot in Group C and has lost three T20I matches in a row.

UGA Team Form

Uganda has won two of their last five games, their two most recent defeats have been extremely crushing!

New Zealand VS Uganda Betting Odds

It is nothing unexpected to see the bookies putting in New Zealand as the colossal top choices in front of this match. Uganda is out at 14.00, and the Black Caps can be backed at 1.01.

Who will win the New Zealand VS Uganda Match?

Even though Uganda enjoyed their first T20 World Cup, they still have a long way to go before they can compete with the best teams. New Zealand is our best team despite their poor results.

NZ VS UGA Top Team Batsmen

Our picks for New Zealand’s batting against Uganda are Daryl Mitchell, Finn Allen, and Glenn Phillips. Mitchell has been exceptional in recent years, tough to stop once he gets going. Allen has an impressive T20I record with over 1100 runs at a striking rate of 161.71%. 

For Uganda, Simon Ssesazi, Robinson Obuya and Alpesh Ramjani are our batting picks. Ramjani, who bats in the top four, should be given the chance to bat for a long innings if his technique allows it.  

NZ VS UGA Top Team Bowlers

Lockie Ferguson, Tim Southee, and Trent Boult with the ball. Problems will always arise as a result of Ferguson’s lightning-fast pace, particularly when it comes to smaller nations. The 33 year old has a great strike-pace of 15.00 in T20I cricket. Since February 2008, Southee has been playing international cricket and has taken 660 international wickets!

Our Ugandan bowling recommendations are Frank Nsubuga, Brian Masaba, and Cosmas Kyewuta. Kyewuta, 22, a right-arm medium pacer, has 5 wickets in the tournament, including dismissing Sherfane Rutherford in the last match. Captain Masaba, with 2 dismissals against West Indies, will showcase his bowling variations in this game.


New Zealand VS Uganda Despite the fact that Uganda have won one match and are a newcomer to the T20 World Cup, they have been easily beaten by West Indies and Afghanistan. We anticipate that they will also find New Zealand’s wealth, talent, and experience to be too much for them to handle! We anticipate a significant victory for New Zealand.
