Kenya vs Uganda Women (KEN vs UGA) – Fantasy Notes

Points to consider

Stephanie Nampiina is a leg spin allrounder from Uganda who has not bowled in every match but in matches that she has bowled in, she picked up a 4-wicket haul against Namibia. She is the most popular C/VC choice currently.

Queentor Abel will be our preferred choice for C/VC as she was the top run scorer and top wicket-taker for Kenya in the last edition of this tournament in 2022.

Back more all-rounders and bowlers as these kinds of matches are almost always low scoring. Bowling all-rounders in particular are very valuable.

In the WK section, Kevin Awino is the best choice even though she is not a bowler as she was the top scorer for Uganda last year. It is also very rare to see batters score a half-century in this tournament - Awino has 3.

Uganda skipper Consylate Aweko along with Evelyn Anyipo, Patricia Malemikia, and Janet Mbabazi are the key bowlers from Uganda. Mbabazi is a leg-break bowler while the others are slow medim pacers.
