Pitch Report: The surface at the Entebbe Cricket Oval had enough help for the bowlers in the last few matches of the tri-series and things were difficult for batsmen. The spinners also got some consistent assistance from the pitch and conditions are expected to be the same for this game as well. Thus, bowling first will be a safe option.

While considering the performances of the Kenya players in this tri-series so far, it will be a favourable move to include more cricketers from their side in this fantasy team.
