It will be a crucial contest in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022 as Namibia face the Netherlands in the 5th game of the tournament. Both sides have started the tournament with a win and shall look to maintain the momentum. Namibia defeated Sri Lanka, which shall add to their confidence. The Netherlands began with a win against the United Arab
Namibia has caused one of the upsets of the tournament, defeating a big side comprehensively. They have their batsmen and bowlers in good form, which is an advantage for the team. Netherlands' batsmen didn't look confident in the last game, and it will be interesting to see how they approach this contest.
Gerhard Erasmus would be happy with his side's performance in their opening game against Sri Lanka. The side proved the pundits wrong as they trounced Sri Lanka by 55 runs. It was a collective effort from the team and great use of the conditions by their bowlers. Erasmus would want his side to ride the same form and win this game to strengthen their position.
Michael van Lingen and Divan la Cock went out cheaply in the last game and would look to deliver the goods here. The middle order scored runs, but the trio of Stephan Baard, Erasmus, and Nicol Loftie-Eaton shall look to convert their starts into big scores. David Wiese, Jan Frylinck, and JJ Smith add punch to the lower middle order with their hitting abilities.
Wiese and Erasmus are experienced bowlers, and the side would expect them to deliver early wickets and put the side in a comfortable position. Bernard Scholtz and Ben Shikongo were good in the middle overs against Sri Lanka and will look to repeat the same magic in this game. Jan Frylinck and Smith complete a strong bowling attack for the side and come with their confidence high.

Scott Edwards' side comes into this game with a 3-wicket win over the United Arab Emirates. They bowled well in restricting UAE to a score of 111 runs but struggled in the run chase, with their batsmen wasting their starts. They can't afford the same against Namibia and must produce a better show in this game.
Max O'Dowd and Vikramjit Singh must deliver a good show at the top as both players got starts in the last game. Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, and Tom Cooper have to build partnerships in the middle order to put the side in a commanding position. Edwards is a clean hitter of the ball and must add quick runs along with Roelof van der Merwe.
Their bowlers would be confident after the excellent show in the last game, and the side would need early breakthroughs from Fred Klaassen and Tim Pringle. Bas de Leede was brilliant in the previous game, and he will have to bowl tight lines in the middle overs with Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren and Logan van Beek.

Geelong will have cloud cover on October 18. We expect to see more challenging batting conditions than what we have seen in the past. There would be assistance for the bowlers in this game. The side batting first shall like to have 160 or more on the board to feel confident.
Simonds Stadium, Geelong, is a small ground, and there have been high-scoring games in the past. Batting is easy on this track as the ball comes to the bat nicely. Fast bowlers can move the ball in the air and have done well. It is a challenging venue for the spinners as there is no assistance for them on this surface.
Most teams in the past have won games chasing scores at this venue. The wicket is good here and allows batters to play their strokes freely. However, it can be tricky at the start of the game creating doubts in the minds of the batsmen. Hence, the side that wins the toss would have little hesitation in opting to bowl first.
The Netherlands will be worried about the form of their batsmen. Their batsmen looked rusty in the last game and must strike form for the side to defeat a confident Namibian team. Namibia put up a brilliant show in the previous game, and they have their bowlers in great shape. Under overcast conditions, the side will start favorites in this game.
