ICC T20 World Cup 2021 group stages are coming to the end with all teams set to play their last league games. Both Ireland and Namibia have undergone similar results in this tournament so far with wins over Netherland and losses to Sri Lanka respectively. Sri Lanka have qualified for the Super-12s while Netherlands are out of the competition. Both teams will need to win this match to qualify for the Super-12s and we have a mouth-watering finish to the group season with a virtual knockout. Namibia got their first victory in ICC tournaments after their victory last night and will be eager to go one more step ahead. Ireland will look to bring their experience to play in this crucial encounter.

Namibia Preview

Namibia chased down a stiff target of 165 runs with an over remaining. David Wiese played a brilliant knock of 66 runs off 40 balls. Gerhard Erasmus (30 runs) and other batters played little cameos to keep the scoreboard ticking in the match. Their batters will be looking to replicate this performance in this match too.

Their bowling unit performed well as a unit with all bowlers giving runs in the range of 8 to 9 RPO. Jan Frylinck took 2 wickets while David Wiese took one wicket in the last match. Their bowlers need to take more wickets with the ball to restrict the opposition batters effectively.

Top players to bet on:

David Wiese – Wiese is a globe trotter in the T20 leagues and he has brought his entire experience to team with his brilliant knock of 66 runs & bowling figures of 4-0-32-1. We expect him to have a good performance with the bat and ball in this match too.

Gerhard Erasmus – Erasmus has scores of 20 & 32 I the 2 matches and built a brilliant 930-run partnership with Wiese in the last game. He will be expected to play the anchor role in the middle order.

Namibia Predicted Playing XI:

Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, Harry Tector, Neil Rock (wk), Simi Singh, Mark Adair, Joshua Little, Craig Young

Ireland Preview

Ireland failed to get going in the 172–run chase last night as they were bowled out for just 101 runs. Andrew Balbirnie (41 runs) and Curtis Campher (24 runs) were the only players to score runs in double digits. Gareth Deland and Paul Stirling took their team to victory in the first match.

Pacers Mark Adair, Joshua little, and Craig Young bowled superbly with combined figures of 12-0-82-6 in the match. Simi Singh and Curtis Campher went for 79 runs in their combined 7 overs and Paul Stirling his role of bowling a quiet first over.

Top players to bet on:

Paul Stirling – Stirling is their most experienced batsmen and has scored more than 2500+ T20I runs for their team. He can also chip in with vital overs with the ball too.

Joshua Little – Little has brilliant bowling figures of 1/14 & /23 in the 2 matches played so far. He was brilliant with the ball last night against a good Sri Lankan batting line-up registering his best T20I figures.

Ireland Predicted Playing XI:

Paul Stirling, Kevin O Brien, Andrew Balbirnie (c), Gareth Delany, Curtis Campher, Harry Tector, Neil Rock (wk), Simi Singh/Ben White, Mark Adair, Joshua Little, Craig Young

Weather Conditions

Sharjah has bright and sunny weather with no chances of rain on the match day. We expect full match with no weather disturbances.

Venue Details

Sharjah was on the slower side in the IPL matches and ball was stopping on the batsmen once it gets older. Batters need to utilize the power play effectively. We expect the average scores to be around 140-160 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Chasing is the best option as teams can pace their innings according to the target in hand. The ball might be hard to time in the second innings especially against the spinners.

Ireland is the experienced of the 2 teams and will have a slight edge over Namibia in this regard. Namibia will be high on confidence after chasing a good score and will be eager to win this match and go ahead into next round. Bowling has bene their Achilles heel as they are not able to pick wickets. Ireland has a good batting and bowling attack and their only concern will be the ineffectiveness of spin department so far. We expect Ireland to win this match owing to their team depth and experience.

Ireland will win the match
