Match Preview

Scotland vs Namibia: Scotland will lock horns with Namibia today in the Match 21 of the T20 World Cup 2021 at the Sheikh Zayed in Abu Dhabi. Namibia qualified for the Super 12s stage after finishing second in the Group A fixtures of Round 1 stage. They faced defeat in just one match against Sri Lanka but then displayed a great intent to beat Netherlands & Ireland to proudly march in the main Super 12s stage of the mega event.

Namibia’s last match against Ireland was not less than a stunner for cricket fans. Namibia bowled out Ireland for 125 runs in the first innings. David Wiese continued his fine run as he returned with figures of 2 for 22 in 4 overs. Jan Frylinck was the pick of the bowlers, claiming 3 for 21 in 4 overs. Namibia chased down the score in 18.3 overs, thanks to a spectacular batting show from the top order.

Craig Williams (15 off 16) and Zane Green (23 off 32) made a decent contribution before Gerhard Erasmus and David Wiese took the game away from them. The skipper scored a match-winning half-century off 49 balls, while David Wiese scored 28 runs off 14 balls.

After displaying spectacular performances in the Round 1 stage, Namibia will be hoping to get off to a flying start to their Super 12s campaign by registering a win against Scotland.

On the other hand, Scotland topped Group B by registering three wins from three matches they have played. However, they lost their opening clash of the Super 12s stage against Afghanistan by massive 130 runs. Afghanistan’s batsman smashed Scotland’s bowling attack by registering a Mammoth 190 runs total in the first inning. Safyaan Sharif picked 2 wickets for 33 runs in 4 overs. Josh Davey picked one wicket but went for 41 runs in his four overs, while Mark Watt claimed one for 23.

In response, Scotland was wrapped up for just 60 runs. George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer gave a good start to their chase until Mujeeb Ur Rahman broke the partnership in the fourth over. As Coetzer went back to the pavilion. Wickets kept falling at regular intervals & Afghanistan rattled their batting order in no time. Scotland will take lessons from their previous defeat & would try to make a solid comeback against Namibia in today’s clash.

With both, the teams eyeing a crucial win fans can expect a stunner contest today at the grounds of Sheikh Zayed Stadium
