Adverse weather conditions kept the flow of the match erratic from the start. Scotland captain Richie Berrington won the toss and asked Brian Masaba's side to bat first. Uganda posted 95/5 (18) in the first innings of the rain-shortened match was abandoned with Scotland at 27/0 (1.5).

It was Uganda, the newcomer's second warm-up match ahead of the marque event. In the first game, they suffered a 5-wicket loss against Namibia. Meanwhile, Scotland were playing their first prep match which ended with no result. But the team's impressive fielding restricted the opponents' batters to a mere 95 in 18 overs.
