The Lauderhill in Florida has been pivotal for spinners to get enough purchase off the wicket. The wicket is expected to behave in a similar manner. The forecast for the day seems clear but there are chances of rain in the latter half of the game.
USA vs NAM Probable 11:
USA- Xavier Marshall, Monank Patel, Steven Taylor, Aaron Jones, Jaskaran Malhotra (WK), Karima Gore, Timil Patel, Elmore Hutchinson, Jessy Singh, Nisarg Patel, Saurabh Netravalkar (C)

Players to watch out for:
Steven Taylor sensational all-round performance with bat and ball certainly makes him the top pick. In the previous ODI, Taylor scalped four wickets for just 23 runs in his 10 overs, and then went on to top score with the bat as he added 43 runs to his personal tally with a boundary and three sixes.
Monank Patel’s form at the top order can also inflict damage against Namibia, In the previous game, he constructed a stable knock of 30 from 48 deliveries.
Though Aaron Jones wasn’t able to impress in the last ODI, his knock of 77 against Papua New Guinea gave a glimpse of how solid he can be top of the order.
For Namibia, no one, apart from the opening batsman, Karl Birkenstock chipped in with the runs in their last ODI. Birkenstock went on to score a 57 ball 32.
It was Zhivago Groenewald who slightly put the U.S under the pump with a good spell of three for 28 in nine overs.
