ICC T20I World Cup is going at a full tilt with teams fighting hard for the spots in the semi-finals. New Zealand are currently sitting comfortably in the second spot but they are followed closely by Afghanistan and India. They need to win the remaining 2 matches to qualify for semi-finals directly else they might need to wait for other team`s results or Net run rate. Namibia have already exceeded their expectations after qualifying for the Super-12 stages in their very first World Cup appearance. They would look to get a win over one of the big teams which will be a big boost for them.

New Zealand Preview

New Zealand posted a massive score of 172 runs with their experienced opener Martin Guptill scoring 93 runs. Glenn Philips played a vital hand of 33 runs in the 105-run partnership with Guptill. Kane Williamson and Daryl Mitchell have also scored runs with the bat in this tournament so far.

Ish Sodhi and Trent Boult picked up 2 wickets each in the match. Tim Southee and Mitchell Santner were economical with the ball giving runs at less than 6 RPO. Adam Milne was off-color going for 36 runs despite his first over maiden. Kyle Jamieson might get a game in place of Adam Milne.

Top players to bet on:

Martin Guptill – Guptill smashed 93 runs off 56 balls with 6 boundaries and 7 sixes. He scored nearly 60% of his team’s runs in the last match. We expect him to make a brilliant start in this match too.

Ish Sodhi – Ish Sodhi has claimed 6 wickets in the 3 matches and all 6 wickets has been the top-4 player’s wickets. Sodhi has been their chief wicket-taker claiming important wickets for New Zealand so far.

New Zealand Predicted Playing XI:

Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Kane Williamson (c), James Neesham, Devon Conway (wk), Glenn Phillips, Mitchell Santner, Adam Milne/Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult

Namibia Preview

Namibia were restricted to 144/6 chasing a massive target of 190 runs against Pakistan. David Wiese (43 runs), Craig Willaims (44 runs), and Stephan Baard (29 runs) tried to build partnerships but could not challenge the opposition bowlers effectively. They need to bat more sensibly in middle overs to score big runs.

Scotland bowlers gave away 189 runs in their 20 overs and failed to dismiss the opposition openers until 14.2 overs. David Wiese and Jan Frylinck bowled pretty decently and claimed a wicket each in the match. Trumplemann gave just 2 runs in his first 2 overs but went for 34 runs in his next 2 overs.

Top players to bet on:

David Wiese – Wiese has been the stand out performer for Namibia scoring 185 runs and claiming 5 wickets so far. He has lead his team to victory with impactful performances and he needs to play a big role if they need to challenge New Zealand.

Jan Frylinck – Frylinck is their leading wicket taker with 8 wickets at an economy rate of 7 RPO. We expect him to continue his good form in this match too with the ball.

Namibia Predicted Playing XI:

Stephan Baard, Michael van Lingen, Craig Williams, Gerhard Erasmus (c), David Wiese, JJ Smit, Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Ruben Trumpelmann, Zane Green (wk), Jan Frylinck, Ben Shikongo

Weather Conditions

Sharjah will have bright sunny weather with early 30 degrees on the match day. We expect no weather disturbances and dew might play a big role in the match.

Venue Details

Sharjah has been the slowest of the 3 surfaces in the UAE and batsmen will find it hard to time the ball against spinners. Batters will try to hit the ball towards the shorter boundaries. We expect scores in the range of 140-150 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Teams have predominantly opted to bowl first in most of the matches and chasing teams have a 5-3 win-loss record at this venue in this tournament.

New Zealand outplayed their opposition in all facets of the game in their last 2 matches. They have a strong batting and bowling line-up with experience and quality. Namibia have performed better than their expectations and will be raring to go against Kiwis in this match. They have the ability to beat bigger teams and have done it in this tournament already. We expect New Zealand to win this match owing experience in playing bigger tournaments.

NEW ZEALAND will win the match
