This game may not take place at all considering how the Cameroon and South Sudan game didn’t take place and South Sudan won in a forfeiture scenario. However, if it does occur then Uganda is going to take on Cameroon for a crucial game as both teams hunt for their first win. More about UGN vs CMR Dream 11 will be given below.
Uganda may get the win here by default like South Sudan if Cameroonian players return positive COVID-19 tests. This is a bizarre scenario for Cameroon who would feel unlucky as they weren’t even able to participate in the first game and lost without competing. Cameroon is a better ranked team than both Uganda and South Sudan so these losses by forfeiture are only going to hurt them more. If Cameroon does participate then we may see a dilapidated lineup considering how some of the players would remain in isolation considering the COVID-19 protocols. If the game does take place then Uganda must bounce back from a drubbing by Senegal as they lost 93-55.

Arthur Kaluma(last match stats for FIBA AfroBasket Qualifiers)
Benoit Mbala(Stats from FIBA Afrobasket Qualifiers 2021)
*stats from the FIBA AfroBasket Qualifiers*
1. Arthur Kaluma
Arthur has the ability to score both from outside and inside the paint. However, he fared poorly against Senegal as defenders like Dieng converged on him reducing him to 3/17 from the field. His rebounding did click in the last game and that is why he is a candidate as the Super-Player in the Dream11 Fantasy basketball scenario.
2. Benoit Mbala(Stats from FIBA Afrobasket Qualifiers 2021)
Benoit is a blessing at the Forward position. He has length, quickness, and athleticism to generate tough rim finishes while being an all-out threat in fastbreak situations. The Forward also displays a decent shooting touch while he is also a terrific rebounder and can rack up double-doubles.
3. Ishmail Wainright
Wainright has an amazing ability to penetrate inside while displaying a decent shooting stroke. He can also get on the rebounding and defensive end. However, like Kaluma he shot poorly going for 3/11 from the field.
4. Williams Narace(Stats from FIBA Afrobasket Qualifiers 2021)
Narace is a highly talented off-the-ball player who has a great game sense and uses his shots wisely. Williams can be a tough player for Uganda to guard if the game takes place and he is not infected by COVID-19.
5. Adam Seiko
Adam is one of the best shooters in the Uganda team and jumper was on point against Senegal as he nailed four of the seven attempts.
6. Jeremy Nzeulie(Stats from FIBA Afrobasket Qualifiers 2021)
7. Deng John Geu
8. Jimmy Enabu
BENCH: Tonny Drileba, Keiran St Charles Alvarez Zziwa, James Okello, Titus Odeke, Eric Rwahwire, Arthur Kaluma, Robinson Obong.
