Meanwhile, Uganda sits third on the table with two points. Their only victory came against Papua New Guinea. However, Brian Masaba's side comes into this match having suffered a 134-run defeat against the West Indies.

New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said it was “frustrating” not to qualify for the Super Eights of the 2024 T20 World Cup.

“We are going to bowl, I want to take a look with the bowl first. We are going with the same team as the last game. Frustrating not to have the opportunity to not pass but we have to focus on what lies ahead,” Williamson said.

Uganda skipper Brian Masaba has confirmed that Fred Achelam and Ronak Patel have been included in the starting eleven.

“We are not happy with the batting performance in the last two games and we are going into this match thinking that. We have two changes today – Ronak comes in and so does Fred Achelam. There is a bit of moisture in the surface with all the rain around,” Masaba said.

Uganda playing XI: Ronak Patel, Simon Ssesazi, Robinson Obuya, Riazat Ali Shah, Alpesh Ramjani, Dinesh Nakrani, Kenneth Waiswa, Brian Masaba, Fred Achelam, Juma Miyagi, Cosmas Kyewuta.

New Zealand playing XI: Devon Conway, Finn Allen, Rachin Ravindra, Kane Williamson, Daryl Mitchell, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson.
