Afghanistan to face Uganda in T20 World Cup opener

GEORGETOWN, Guyana — Afghanistan’s national cricket team is set to face Uganda in their first T20 World Cup 2024 match on Monday in Georgetown, Guyana.

Led by the country’s cricket sensation Rashid Khan, Afghanistan is highly respected in the T20 format globally. The team has made significant preparations for the match, according to bowling consultant Dwayne Bravo.

“I think the mood in the camp is really good. I am happy that I was able to be a part of the camp in Trinidad to share my local knowledge and cricket experience,” Bravo said.

The Afghanistan team is coached by England’s Jonathan Trott, with Bravo serving as the bowling consultant.

Following their match against Uganda, Afghanistan will play New Zealand on June 9 and Papua New Guinea on June 14.
