Namibia will take on Uganda in the 1st of the 2 matches of the unofficial ODI series on Tuesday. Both sides had a close T20I series where the hosts Namibia came out on top to seal the series 2-1. Definitely, Namibia will have an upper hand going into this series and they look forward to keeping the same momentum going. They are likely to go with the same winning combination for the 1st game.
Uganda, on the other hand, are taking baby steps on the international circuit. Though they lost the T20I series 1-2, they should be proud of their performances for the true determination and courage they have shown. They had lost to Namibia in their last 2 meetings in the 50-over format and it’s time for them to give it back.

NAM vs UGA, 1st Unofficial ODI Pitch Report:
The batters can trust the bounce and play the shots on the rise. There will be assistance for the quicks in the initial overs, and later the spinners will come into play and it’s not easy to go against them in the middle overs. Anything more than 250 would be a handy score here.
