It turned out to be a rather one-sided affair between Qatar and Uganda in the first match of the three-match series as Qatar defeated Uganda by a massive margin of 40 runs. Going into the the second match of the series, Uganda is expected to do better considering that they now have had an ample amount of time to get acquainted with the conditions. However, Qatar is unlikely to gie them any edge and are expected to come out even more stronger in the second match. The second match of the series is to be played on 13th February at West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha.
It was all about batting brilliance for Qatar in the opening match of the series as they slammed Uganda's bowlers all around the park. Imal Liyanage and Kamran Khan got them off to a superb start as the duo put together a partnership of 101 in a little over 10 overs before Liyanage was dismissed. Kamran Khan followed him back to the pavilion soon after.
Muhammad Tanveer and Zaheer Ibrahim played well to deny Uganda an entry into the game as they took Qatar to a towering total of 201 without losing any more wickets. Muhammad Tanveer remained unbeaten with a 34-ball 57 and was the pick of their batsmen.
It was always going to be difficult for Uganda to chase down this total and Qatar's bowlers ensured that. Awais Malika, Gayan Munaweera, and Iqbal Hussain were brilliant upfront and reduced Uganda to 25 for 3. There was a brief partnership thereafter, but Qatar's bowlers continued to pick up wickets at regular intervals and eventually restricted Qatar to 161.

As was the case in the practice match, Uganda proved to be no match to the power-packed Qatar's lineup. Their bowlers failed to pick up wickets and their batsmen failed to score runs freely even on a pretty easy surface to bat on.
Roger Mukasa, their most experienced batsmen looked out of sorts throughout his stay as he got dismissed after scoring a laborious eight off 20 deliveries. Deusdedit Muhumuza and Frank Akankwasa were their only batsmen who managed to put up some resistance and scored 42 and 66 respectively. Apart from the performance of those two, there was hardly anything worth noticing as their batting as well as bowling both failed to do anything of substance.
Deusdedit Muhumuza, Frank Akankwasa, Zephania Arinaitwe, Trevor Bukenya, Kenneth Waiswa, Charles Waiswa, Roger Mukasa, Arnold Otwani, Frank Nsubuga, Fred Achelam, Henry Ssenyondo.
In the first match, there as a stark difference between how the two sides approach the game. While Qatar looked to be on the front foot right from the beginning, Uganda were always chasing the game. Uganda are expected to do a bit better in the upcoming match, but would need to play out of skins to defeat the hosts. On paper as well as on the basis of recent performances respectively, Qatar are better placed to emerge on top in the upcoming encounter.
