AFG vs NAM Dream11 Today Match Prediction: After almost scripting a historic win against Pakistan, Afghanistan have some unfinished business now against Namibia. They were so close against Pakistan, that they will be coming all guns blazing against the minnows Namibia. The latter on the other hand beat Scotland in the last match and will be looking to upset Afghans to make a strong statement against other teams.

AFG vs NAM T20 World Cup Dream11 Prediction

Afghanistan

  • Afghanistan won the match against Scotland and lost to Pakistan.
  • Najibullah, Hazratullah Zazai, and Gurbaz were on fire with the bat against Scotland. Gulbuddin and Nabi stepped up with the bat against Pakistan.
  • Mujeeb and Rashid have picked up 6 wickets from the last two matches.

Namibia

  • They defeated Netherlands and Ireland to make it to the top 12.
  • They defeated Scotland in the last match.
  • David Wiese is the leading run-scorer with 116 runs from 4 matches.

AFG vs NAM Today Match Prediction

Both teams are in great form and have great momentum, hence his should be a cracker of a contest. It will be a test of how well the Namibia batting unit that thrashed Scotland the other day can come up good against the strong Afghan bowling unit. How they will accelerate their innings against Mujeeb and Rashid will also be a thing to watch out for. It is a battle between the bowling unit of both teams.

AFG vs NAM Winning Chances

Both teams have chances theoretically taking into account past performances and current form. But practically Afghanistan is way ahead of Namibia in all departments of the game. They showed their strength in the last match against Pakistan. And hence they should be able to defeat them. Even the popular betting sites are also predicting the same.

Betway- NAM- 3.60, AFG- 1.25

Both teams have tasted great success recently and hence they are not expected to play around with their playing elevens. Afghan may leave out Karim Jannat, who was taken to the cleaners by Asif Ali the other day.  Expect an unchanged eleven from Namibia.
