The West Indies may have breifly stumbled when they played Papua New Guinea, but there was no such stumble when they took on Uganda in Guyana last night as they crushed their opponents by a 134 run margin.

Batting first after winning the toss, West Indies racked up 173-5 from their 20 overs. No single batter dominated their innings, with 44 from 42 balls by Johnson Charles their top score. Andre Russell was the only other batter to reach 30, doing so exactly from only 17 balls.

Uganda offered little resistance in their reply. Akeal Hosein took five of the first seven wickets to fall to finish with 5-11, while Juma Miyagi was the only Ugandan to reach double figures with an unbeaten 13. Their final total was 39, a 134 run defeat.

Both teams play New Zealand in their next match - West Indies on Wednesday night and Uganda on Friday night. Both matches take place at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad.
