After facing a heavy defeat in the first match, Uganda wished to put up a better performance in the second match and although they did, it just wasn't enough to beat the hosts. The second match of the series turned out a lot closer than the first one and Uganda will be looking to put more effort in the third match of the series to salvage some pride. The third T20I of the series will be played at the same venue as the first two matches, that is, West End Park International Cricket Stadium, Doha, on Saturday, 15th February. Qatar have already won the series and we might see them experimenting in the upcoming matches whereas Uganda are still searching for their first win and are expecting to put their everything in the upcoming match.
Qatar followed a similar template as their first match after Uganda put them in to bat. Although they changed their batting order with Imal Liyanage shifted down the order, they got off to a terrific start once again. Kamran Khan and Zaheer Ibrahim were brilliant at the top of the order as they added 74 runs for the first wicket. Qatar kept losing wickets at a regular interval thereafter, but runs kept flowing as well. Qatar eventually ended their innings with 154 runs on the board.
While the total of 154 was way less that what they scored in the first match, they surface, too, wasn't as easy to bat on as it was in the first match. It was a slow surface and scoring runs was difficult, but their bowlers had to toil hard against Uganda batsmen. They got rid of Z Arinaitwe early, but the other batsmen managed to put up a solid fight.
Although Qatar was always ahead in the game, a small mistake could have taken the game away from them. However, it didn't happen. Awais Malik, in particular, was brilliant and not only did he pick up two wickets, he did so with an incredible economy rate of 4.25. He got good support from Mohammed Nadeem and Iqbal Hussain as Qatar won the match by 28 runs.
So far in the series, there is only a little the hosts have done wrong. Their batters batted responsibly in the second match and didn't throw it away when the going looked difficult. Their bowlers did well pretty well in both the matches. With both departments doing well, beating Qatar will be a difficult task for Uganda.

The fans of Uganda cricket team can argue that did better in the second match as compared to the first match, but the fact remains that they failed to defeat Qatar for the second time in a row. Apart from winning the toss, nothing seemed to be going for Uganda when they were out in the middle in the second match of the series.
A total of 154 runs to chase down was a lot more reasonable than what they had to chase in the first match. Their batsmen tried hard to keep up with the scoring rate, but failed to do so. The likes of Roger Mukasa, A Otwani, K Waiswa, and D Muhumuza did well to take them within a touching distance of a win, but lack of contribution from their lower middle-order resulted in yet another loss for them. Kenneth Waisa was the pick of their batsmen with his 23-ball 39.
Earlier with the ball, Uganda did well to pull things back after Qatar got off to a terrific start. They picked up three wickets in the last nine overs and conceded less than 80 runs in last ten overs. Although he went wicketless, Henry Ssenvendo was most impressive of their bowlers as he kept Qatar batsmen quiet in the middle overs. He conceded just 18 runs in his four overs.
Zephania Arinaitwe, Fred Achelam, Deusdedit Muhumuza, Frank Akankwasa, Trevor Bukenya, Kenneth Waiswa, Charles Waiswa, Brian Masaba, Arnold Otwani, Frank Nsubuga, Henry Ssenyondo.

Uganda did manage to bridge a bit of gap in the performance, but were still not a match for the hosts. The hosts could experiment a bit in the third match of the series and that could allow Uganda to make an opening and sneak in. However, considering how the two teams have played so far, it is going to be a colossal task. Batsmen as well as bowlers both have been in terrific form for the hosts and stopping them is not going to be easy. They also happen to have the advantage of playing in familiar conditions, which Uganda have not been able to adapt to. For those reasons, we think Qatar are going to win the upcoming match and seal the series 3-0. Although the odds are just 1.17, betting on a Qatar's win is the way to go here.
