NAM Playing 11: The Namibia team will lock horns against Netherlands in the Match 7 of the T20 World Cup 2021. They have a must win game upon them, and need to be at their best in this fixture, and keep a track of maintaining a fine net run rate as well.
The Namibia team lost their first league fixture against Sri Lanka. They were dismissed on a score of 96, with the 20+ runs contributions from Craig Williams Gerhard Erasmus. While David Wiese along with other batters failed to perform well. Then the opposition chased down the score easily in 13 overs, with Trumpelmann, Scholtz, and Smit taking 1 wicket each.
The Namibia team have been disappointing performers in the tournament. They lost both their warmup matches against Oman and Scotland, and have lost their first league fixture against Sri Lanka as well. The team needs the performances from David Wiese in both departments, who is the most experienced player in the team and is coming into this tournament after being part of CPL 2021.
No changes are expected in the Playing 11 of the Namibia team, as they are possibly featuring with the best set of players. The middle order needs to fire right away to keep their hopes alive of qualifying for the group stages, while bowlers need to give their 100% for a win.
