New Delhi. The pair of brothers playing for the same team in the T20 World Cup 2024 are in the news for different reasons. While the younger brother is facing criticism due to his poor performance, the elder brother is getting applause for his brilliant performance. Here we are talking about Roger Mukasa and Frank Subuga of the Ugandan team. The Ugandan team is playing in the T20 World Cup for the first time. It has won one of its three matches. During this, while elder brother Frank has made a mark with his performance, this tournament has been a 'flop show' so far for younger brother Roger.

Uganda has suffered crushing defeats against Afghanistan and West Indies during its campaign while the team has defeated Papua New Guinea. The team's main batsman Roger Mukasa would like to forget his performance in this tournament. He has been able to play only 6 balls in three matches so far and has made a 'hat-trick' of zeros.

Younger brother Mukasa could play a total of 6 balls in three innings, getting LBW every time
Mukasa (Roger Mukasa) sometimes opens the innings for Uganda and sometimes comes at number three. He became a 'golden duck' in the first match against Afghanistan. He became the victim of Fazalhaq Farooqui on his very first ball. In the match against Papua New Guinea, he could play only three balls while opening and in the third match against West Indies, he could play only two balls. His account was not opened in both these innings as well. The interesting thing is that he was LBW in all three innings. Uganda has to play its last group match against New Zealand on June 14. Due to poor performance, Mukasa is unlikely to get a place in the playing eleven in this match.

Players who got out at 0 most number of times in the current World Cup

Musaka is currently the batsman who has been out on 0 the most number of times in the T20 World Cup 2024. Apart from him, no one else has made a 'duck' three times in this tournament. 35-year-old Mukasa's bat may have gone against him in the current T20 World Cup, but his T20I records are excellent. The right-handed batsman has scored 1186 runs in 58 T20 matches at an average of 23.25 and a strike rate of 120.77, including five half-centuries. During this, he has hit 133 fours and 36 sixes. He has also scored 738 runs in a calendar year (2023).

The most economical bowling of the tournament was done by elder brother Subuga

Amid this poor performance of Mukasa, his elder brother Frank Subuga is getting praise for his performance. 43-year-old offbreak bowler Subuga has the most economical bowling analysis of an innings in the T20 World Cup 2024. In the match against Papua New Guinea, he took two wickets for 4 runs (economy 1.00) while keeping two maidens in 4 overs. Not only this, Subuga is the only bowler to bowl two maiden overs in the current tournament. Subuga was not part of the playing XI in the match against Afghanistan. In the match against Papua New Guinea, he played an important role in the team's victory by 3 wickets, while in the match against West Indies, he did not get any wicket despite giving 29 runs.

Subuga has bowled 17 maiden overs in T20 Internationals
Subuga is the most economical bowler in T20 International. In his career of 56 T20 Internationals, he has bowled 17 maiden overs so far. No bowler is even close to him. Since Uganda is an associate member of the ICC, his performance is not often discussed much. Kenyan spinner Shem Ngoche is in second place in terms of bowling maiden overs in T20 Internationals, who has bowled 12 maiden overs. India's Jasprit Bumrah (11 maidens) is third in this list and India's Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Germany's Ghulam Ahmed (10-1 maiden) are jointly at fourth place.

Economy in T20Is is 4.79: Subuga is the most 'miserly' bowler in T20 International. Generally, in T20 International, a bowler with an economy of 6 (average runs given per over) is considered good, but Subuga's economy is 4.79, that is, in international matches of this format, he has given an average of only 4.79 runs in every over, which is really a big achievement.
