NAM Playing 11: The Namibia team will compete with the Indian team in the Match 42 of the T20 World Cup 2021. They will take the learnings from the tournament and perform better in the next tournament.
The Namibia team could not secure a victory against the New Zealand team and fell short by 52 runs. They were impressive with the ball in the first 10 overs, but gave away too many in the last 5, with opposition posting 163 runs in the board. The captain Erasmus was impressive with his bowling effort to contain and take a wicket. In the batting department, Green, Lingen, and Baard were the key contributors and would look to continue the same form.
The Namibia team played well to qualify for the first time into the main draw of the T20 World Cup. Apart from their clinical performance against Scotland, the team has not shown intent in scoring runs in a quick fashion. The batters need to be proactive in rotating the strike and not relying much on experienced player David Wiese. While the bowlers have been average with their performances as well.
1 change is expected in the Playing 11 of the Namibia team for their fixture against India. The fast bowler Ben Shikongo is likely to replace Ruben Trumpelmann. The batting unit will see no changes and would look to end the tournament on a high note.
