Pakistan have been absolutely dominant in the T20 World Cup so far. In fact, they and England have been absolutely unstoppable in the the World Cup so far. While Pakistan have three wins from as many games, England have extended their unbeaten streak to four. Pakistan began by crushing India by 10 wickets and have followed it up with impressive triumphs over New Zealand and Afghanistan. They will be downright favourites heading into the clash against Namibia.
Namibia’s dream run in the T20 World Cup 2021 came to an end after Afghanistan tamed them by 62 runs. Namibia’s bowlers did a reasonable job to restrict Afghanistan to 160 for 5. However, their batters’ limitations were exposed by a quality Afghanistan bowling attack. David Wiese was the only Namibia batter to cross the 20s as all the other batters struggled. They would be keen to put up a better show against Pakistan, which would not be an easy task at all.
Pakistan’s Predicted XI: Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Babar Azam (c), Fakhar Zaman, Mohammad Hafeez, Shoaib Malik, Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf
Pakistan have ticked most of the boxes so far. But if there are a couple of areas they would like to improve on, it is the batting form of Fakhar Zaman and Mohammad Hafeez as well as the bowling of Hasan Ali.
Namibia’s Predicted XI: Craig Williams, Michael van Lingen, Zane Green (wk), Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Gerhard Erasmus (c), David Wiese, JJ Smit, Jan Frylinck, Pikky Ya France, Ruben Trumpelmann, Bernard Scholtz
Namibia have been impressive with their performances so far. They would like to compete and run Pakistan close.
Top fantasy picks for Pakistan vs Namibia clash: Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi, David Wiese, Ruben Trumpelmann
