Uganda will face Afghanistan in their opening match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

The ICC T20 World Cup 2024 has brought 20 teams together to compete in this tournament. The ninth edition of the tournament is scheduled to be held across nine different venues in the USA and West Indies. 20 teams will play 55 matches, and only one can end up winning the title. There are three teams making their debut in the T20 World Cup.

Uganda are one of them, and they will play their first ever T20 World Cup event. It is a huge moment for them, and it can give them a push in the game. They made it through the African qualifiers after beating teams like Zimbabwe and Kenya, which means they are a pretty strong side. Brian Masaba will lead this team. In this article, we will talk about the five Ugandan players whom you should pick in your Dream11 team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Here are the five Ugandan stars you must have in your Dream11 teams during the ICC T20 World Cup 2024:

Simon Ssesazi is the backbone of Uganda batting order. He is one of the top scorers among the players from the Associate Nations. It will be a surprise for many that his record is even better than that of Chris Gayle in T20Is. Gayle has 1899 runs in 75 innings, and Simon has 2072 in 76 innings. Hence, his wicket is very important, and he generally does well with the bat. So he is a must-have player while making Dream11 teams.

4. Riazat Ali Shah

Roger Mukasa is another important member of Uganda batting unit. The wicket-keeper batter is a floater, who can bat in any position, but mainly bats in middle order. He is capable of playing long innings and quick cameos as the situation demands. Adding to that, he can give you a decent amount of points behind the wickets as well, which is an additional benefit. So he can be a good vice-captain.

1. Dinesh Nakrani
