Uganda have their first win at a World Cup tournament after a low scoring three wicket win over Papua New Guinea today at the Men's T20 World Cup in Guyana.

Uganda captain Brian Masaba won the toss and asked PNG to bat first. The African side bowled really well with PNG finding runs hard to come by. Alpesh Ramjani, Cosmas Kyewuta, Juma Miyagi and Frank Nsubuga all took two wickets each.

Nsubuga, playing his first match of this World Cup was especially econimical, bowling two maidens and conceding just four runs, the most economical full four over spell in Men's T20 World Cup history. He helped bowl PNG out for just 77.

Uganda lost their top three with just six runs added when they started their run chase, and at times struggled to find runs. However unlike their opponents, Uganda did have a player have a lengthy stay at the crease, with Riazat Ali Shah batting facing 56 balls for a score of 33.

He was dismissed from the fifth ball of the 18th over, and Uganda scored the winning runs three deliveries later when Kenneth Waiswa ran two to secure a three wicket win.

Uganda will next be in action on Saturday night when they take on co-hosts West Indies, whilst Papua New Guinea's next match isn't for over a week as they will play Afghanistan on the evening of 13th June.
