Cricket Cranes face Kenya in need of a place in the next round of the 2023 One Day World Cup qualifiers.

Kenya got over Italy before Uganda further made light work of the same opponent with a seven-wicket win.

Frank Nsubuga was the stand-out with bowling figures of 3/8 in 9 overs however, coach Laurence Mahatlane is likely to ring some changes to the playing XI.

Juma Miyagi, Cosmas Kyewuta, and Frank Akankwasa are yet to have a runout and they could be used especially if Uganda opts to go with an all-out pace attack.

Nsubuga lives for this fixture and only Deus Muhumuza could be the other sure name of the starting XI.

Ronak Patel scored an unbeaten 56 in the game against Italy while Arnold Otwani continued his good form with a well-constructed 21.

Uganda is in third place on the table, a point behind leaders in Hong Kong. A win against Kenya will move Uganda into the top spot.

Uganda won by six wickets during the Kampala leg and has a slight mental edge. Rakep Patel will be instrumental for Kenya.
