Netherlands will face Namibia in the match seven of the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup 2021 qualifying round at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

Both teams will be coming into the contest low on confidence after suffering thrashing defeats in their first match.

Therefore, managements will be hoping that the players will turn it around in the next fixture to keep their hopes alive of securing a spot in the Super 12s.

Both teams have only played once in the history of T20Is where Netherlands came out on top by 44-run margin in Dubai in October 2019.

Namibia Preview

After suffering a thrashing defeat against Sri Lanka in their previous match, Namibia might opt to tweak the starting XI for the clash against the Netherlands.

Even though the management will be concerned with the batting display in the first match, they will be pleased with the intensity of the players in the field as well as the bowling performance where they managed restrict the Islanders to 26-3, defending just 97.

In the batting department, Namibia will be relying on the likes of Captain Gerhard Erasmus, wicketkeeper-batter Zane Green, Stephan Baard, Craig Williams, David Wiese and JJ Smit to score bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Ruben Trumpelmann, Wiese, Smit along with the spin duo of Bernard Scholtz and Pikky Ya France to claim timely breakthroughs and restrict the opposition.

Namibia Predicted Playing XI:

Stephan Baard, Zane Green (wk), Craig Williams, Gerhard Erasmus (c), David Wiese, JJ Smit, Jan Frylinck, Pikky Ya France, Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Ruben Trumpelmann, Bernard Scholtz

Netherlands Preview

After suffering a huge defeat against Ireland in the first match, Netherlands might opt to make some changes in the starting XI for the match against Namibia.

Ahead of a must-win clash, the management will be particularly disappointed with the performance of the batters in the first match where they lost four wickets in consecutive deliveries which proved to be a too big of a blow to recover from.

Therefore, the coaching staff will be hoping that the batters will take some responsibility and produce a much better display in the upcoming matches.

In the batting department, the Dutch team will be relying on the likes of in-form opener Max O'Dowd, his partner Ben Cooper, veteran Ryan ten Doeschate, Bas de Leede and captain Pieter Seelaar to score bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Fred Klaassen, Logan van Beek, Brandon Glover along with the spin duo of Roelof van der Merwe and Seelaar to dismantle the opposition’s batting lineup.

Venue Details

Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi is going to host the 7th match of the 2021 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup between Namibia and Netherlands.

In the previous match, Netherlands registered a 44-run win over Namibia in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier

Toss: To Bowl

Both the sides will be looking to win the toss, bowl first and restrict the opposition to the less than 150 runs.

Both teams will be coming in the fixture in extreme pressure knowing that they cannot afford to put a foot wrong if they want to qualify for the Super 12s.

On paper at least, Netherlands, despite a horror show against Ireland, look a far stronger unit compared to Namibia, who are clearly depending on few individuals to turn it around.

 

Expect Netherlands team to secure a win and keep their hopes alive of securing a spot in the next round.
