Left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein worked his inimitable sorcery with a fifer as hosts West Indies hammered Uganda by 134 runs in the T20 World Cup here.


Hosein knocked the wind out of the Uganda batting unit with career-best figures of 5-11, helping West Indies bowl out Uganda for 39 in 12 overs, the joint-lowest team total in the men’s T20 World Cup.


This was after Johnson Charles (44) emerged the top scorer while Andre Russell (30 not out) provided the hosts with the final push to help West Indies post a challenging 173-5.


The win has boosted West Indies’ Net Run Rate to a healthy 3.574, which will help them in their bid to finish in the top two in Group ‘C’.

“It gets tougher from here but we understand conditions and cricket is not easy in the Caribbean,” West Indies skipper Rovman Powell said. The gulf between the two sides was evident when the West Indies bowlers were operating.
