The two sides have never played each other in this century but veteran Frank Nsubuga was part of the last Ugandan side to play Malawi.
Malawi is coached by Arjun Menoni, a personal friend of Cricket Cranes coach Laurence Mahatlane. However, during the game today there will be no love as it is who wants it more.
Uganda is the highest-ranked side in the entire tournament at 29th with Malawi being the closest in ranking at 59th.
The quality of the opponent is currently unknown but with sides packed with Asian players, Uganda cannot afford to let its guard down in any game.
There’s only one slot for the top side to the finals of the Africa T20 World Cup Qualifiers where Kenya and Nigeria are waiting.
Uganda needs to ensure that it takes care of Seychelles, Malawi, and Eswatini Lesotho and hosts Rwanda.
Uganda decided to take the longer route to the 2022 T20 World Cup Qualifiers in Kampala in 2019.
However, if they look to right the wrongs from two years ago, they have to win five games in Kigali starting with Malawi.
Coach Laurence’s side is very healthy side and with a four spin attack Henry Ssenyondo and Frank Nsubuga should make the playing XI.
The game will be live on the ICC TV app for fans to be able to watch the Cricket Cranes.
