India has played its part well after the initial hiccups in ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 and defeated Scotland by a big margin in the last game. Though the side’s qualification into the next round rests on other games they would look for a massive win here against Namibia. Namibia on its part comes here after a big loss against New Zealand and they would have to improve their performance here.
Namibia has lost three out of the four games the side has played in the Super 12. Apart from their win against Scotland the side hasn’t been able to live up to the expectations in the tournament. Indians need a massive win in this game, and it will be interesting to see if Namibia can live up to the expectations. .
Virat Kohli’s side has made a strong statement with two massive wins in the last two games. The side played to its potential in the last game-winning by 8 wickets against Scotland. They bowled well to restrict Scotland to 85 runs and destroyed their bowling attack chasing the score. Kohli shall aim for a massive win here to keep their hopes alive for the next round.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul have looked at their best in the last two games and the same would be expected from them here. In the middle order, the side has good strength with Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, and Rishabh Pant in the side. They would also like to see quick runs from Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, and Ravichandran Ashwin in this game.
Jasprit Bumrah looks in great form and he would look to strike early in the game along with Varun Chakravarthy. Ashwin was slightly expensive in the last game and the side would need him to bowl tight spells. Mohammad Shami and Jadeja would be confident after their three wickets in the last game and a strong show would be expected from them.

Apart from their win against Scotland Gerhard Erasmus’ side hasn’t had much to cheer about in this tournament. The side comes into this contest with a massive loss to New Zealand. They suffered another batting collapse in the last game losing by 52 runs. As they play their last game of the tournament they would look forward to a better show in the game.
Michael van Lingen and Stephan Baard got starts in the last game and they would need to play well here and score at a good pace. In the middle order, the side would need runs from Gerhard Erasmus, Zane Green, and David Wiese in this game. Down the order, the side would expect quick runs from JJ Smit, Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, and Craig Evans.
Ruben Trumpelmann and Bernard Scholtz did well with the ball in the last game and the side would like to see early wickets from them in this game. Erasmus and Karl Birkenstock also bowled tight lines in the middle overs and the same would be expected from them in this game. Wiese and Smith were expensive, and the side would need them to deliver the goods here for them to win.

The conditions are expected to be warm and humid in Dubai on November 08. The wicket has produced lots of runs in the last few games with the ball coming onto the bat nicely. The side that bats first in the game would need 170 runs to feel safe on this track.
Dubai International Cricket Stadium is a large ground, but the fast outfield and flat wicket allow batsmen to score runs easily at this venue. We have seen fast bowlers struggle here with little assistance from the surface. Spinners do well given the assistance they receive from the wicket.
Ten games have been played at this venue and so far, only once has a side won the game batting first. It has been an excellent venue to chase scores where batting conditions ease in the second innings. Hence the side winning the toss would have no hesitation in bowling first.
Namibia would face a big challenge here. Most of their players have got the real taste of competitive cricket in this tournament. The side has good talent, but they will need to stand up to the challenge in this game. Indians would be confident after their two massive wins. Their bowlers and top-order look in excellent form and this would make them favorites to win this game.
