The lady’s national team, the Victoria Pearls are currently in Kenya for Quadrangular Series with other three nations, Kenya, Tanzania and Qatar.

The Victoria Pearls come to today’s encounter with an improved side that has seen a number of experienced players being recalled to the national team due to the due good performances in the local league.
The presence of Immaculate Nakisuyi is a big boost in the squad and with her good moments with the bat might help the camp in all ways to register better performances.
Having had a good year full of good performances, Rita Musali and Janet Mbabazi will also be the other senior players to look out for in this tournament.
Uganda comes to today’s game being ranked in the 21st position while Kenya are currently ranked 25th in the T20I.

With the travelling squad being in good shape it will be upon the two officials in charge to select the best eleven to battle the hosts at Gymkhana Sports Club in Nairobi, Kenya.
On the other side, Uganda face a side that has improved in all departments and it will be a hard task to overcome, but all will be to play for when both sides lock horns in a T20 format.
