It will be an important fixture for both teams to get clear combinations for their first league fixtures for the ICC event and all need to give their 100% effort, as the top teams will participate in their group as well. It is expected to be an interesting match between the arch rivals in the competitive cricket.
The Namibia have a well built squad, but their players lack experience in the world stage and will be under pressure in this fixture to keep up with the raging Scotland team, whose players have gained experience of playing in the international circuit and the T20 leagues.
The crucial players for Namibia team will be all rounder David Wiese and Craig Williams. While, the Scotland team have George Munsey and Berrington in the batting department, while Josh Davey and Brad Wheal will hold the key in the bowling unit.
The Scotland team is predicted to win this match due to the experience and talent in their squad. Although, they have not played quite well in the recent matches, but will look to improve their batting performances and come back stronger to claim new heights in ICC event.
While the Namibia team will be upbeat after beating Scotland in one off fixture and would look to continue the good performances. But, they did not started off well in the last fixture, where they lost by 32 runs, and it will take a daunting effort to win the match against Scotland.
Namibia will be looking to find hefty contributions from their all rounder David Wiese, who is a terrific performer in the T20 circuit and is coming into this tournament after playing well in the CPL 2021 as well. The team’s fixture saw them failing to chase down the score of 152 runs and would look to improve the performances. The top bowlers were Ruben Trumpelmann and Loftie Eaton. While, Erasmus and Green contributed well with the bat, and the other players need to chip in as well.
