T20 World Cup co-hosts West Indies cruised to an easy victory over Uganda in their clash on Saturday (Jun 8). Chasing an unlikely 174 for victory in Guyana, tournament debutants Uganda were shot out for 39 in 12 overs as Akeal Hosein grabbed five for 11. It equalled the lowest score in T20 World Cup history, matching the Netherlands' total against Sri Lanka in 2014.

Uganda equalled the record for the lowest total at a men's Twenty20 World Cup after they were skittled out for just 39 in a 134-run loss to West Indies in Guyana.

The tournament debutants were all out in just 12 overs to match the Netherlands' total against Sri Lanka in 2014 and fall to the second-largest margin of defeat in the tournament's history.

Left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein took a career-best 5-11 to become the first West Indies bowler to take a five-wicket haul at a men's T20 World Cup.

Johnson Charles earlier top-scored with 44 from 42 balls and Andre Russell hit a rapid unbeaten 30 from 17, including six fours, as West Indies posted 173-5.

West Indies stay second in Group C with two wins from two, behind leaders Afghanistan on net run-rate. Uganda are third with two points from three matches.
