Left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein bowled a sensational spell as he claimed five wickets for just 11 runs in four overs. He also bagged the award for Player of the Match.

"I think I needed this. In the nets and in the previous series, I felt the ball was coming out good but I was just not getting the rewards," Hosein said after the match.

"I think it is a lot of hard work. When you get success, guys are going to study you and have a plan. You always have to stay a step ahead. For me, it is just about trying to react to what the surface is doing and planning it out. Even if the ball is going both ways, you cannot do much if you don't plan. So, it is about planning the over well. I am happy to bowl wherever the team needs me."

Hosein became the first West Indies bowler to take a five-wicket haul in a men's T20 World Cup innings.

Alzarri Joseph also chipped in with two wickets for six runs in three overs.

Only tailender Juma Miyagi could get into double figures for Uganda with 13 unbeaten runs in 20 balls.

Earlier, West Indies won the toss and decided to bat first against Uganda. Batting first, the Windies scored 173-5 in their allotted 20 overs.

Johnson Charles top-scored with 44 runs in 42 balls with the help of four fours and two sixes.

Andre Russell played a quick cameo of 30 runs in 17 balls, which included six fours.

Uganda captain Brian Masaba was the pick of the bowlers with figures of 2-31 in four overs.
