Scotland and Namibia qualified for the Super-12 stage of the ICC T20I World Cup for the first time and in fact this is the first T20I World Cup appearance for Scotland. Both teams will be eager to prove themselves against the bigger nations in this World cup. Scotland received a massive drubbing from the Afghans in their first Super-12 match after winning all their 3 games in the group stages. Namibia made a brilliant comeback after their first match defeat to qualify ahead of Ireland and Netherlands in the group stages.

Scotland Preview

Scotland were bundled out for 60 runs in the massive 191-run chase against Afghanistan. George Munsey top scored with 25 runs while their No.3 to No.6 were dismissed for ducks. Kyle Coetzer, Richie Berrington, Mathew Cross, and Chris Greaves have played vital knocks in the group stages.

Their bowlers were taken for 190 runs and Mark Watt was the only bowler with economy rate of less than 8 RPO (4-0-23-1). Josh Davey, Shafyaan Sharif, Bradley Wheal, and Chris Greaves stood up with the ball in different junctures in the group games.

Top players to bet on:

Mark Watt – Mark Watt has bowling figures of 1/23, 1/23, 1/23, & 1/19 in the 4 matches played so far. He has been very economical with the ball and we expect him to continue the good work in this match too.

George Munsey – Munsey has scores of 29, 15, 20, & 25 in the four matches and will be eager to make a big one after getting starts in almost all the matches so far.  He will look to  set the tone of bating with his knock at the top in this match.

Scotland Predicted Playing XI:

George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (c), Matthew Cross (wk), Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, Bradley Wheal

Namibia Preview

Namibia won back-to-back matches chasing against Netherlands and Ireland. Gerhard Erasmus (32 & 53*) and David Wiese (66* & 28*) played huge roles in leading their team to victory. Zane Green, Craig Williams, and JJ Smit have played little cameos so far and are due for a big knock soon.

David Wiese and Jan Frylinck accounted for 5 wickets in the last game and have been their main wicket-takers so far with 8 wickets between them. JJ Smit and Bernard Scholtz have come up with crucial wickets and controlled the run flow effectively alongside their other bowlers. They have performed well as a unit in the bowling department.

Top players to bet on:

Gerhard Erasmus – Erasmus lead their team to victory with an unbeaten fifty in the last game. He played crucial knocks to build partnerships in both their victories and we expect him to continue his good form in this match too.

David Wiese – Wiese has been the MVP for Namibia with two man of the match awards in two victories. He has scored 66* & 28* at a strike rate of nearly 170 and has come up bowling figures of 1/32 & 2/22 respectively.

Namibia Predicted Playing XI:

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

Weather Conditions

Abu Dhabi will have bright sunny weather with early 30 degrees on the match day. We expect full match with no weather disturbances.

Venue Details

Abu Dhabi was on the slower side in the last game played and both teams struggled to the 120+ run mark in the match. Bowlers used the tacky bounce and slowness to great effect in the match. We expect scores in the range of 120-140 runs in this match.

Toss: To Bowl

Dew is becoming a big factor in the night matches and both teams will expect to bowl first as it will become tough to grip the ball in second innings.

Scotland have been playing impressive cricket so far and they will take the last game as a rare off-day and move on. They have 4-5 different players contributing in both batting and bowling departments. Namibia rely too heavily on the likes of David Wiese & Gerhard Erasmus in batting department. Similarly David Wiese and Jan Frylinck has been their wicket-taking bowlers in this tournament. They need to play well as team with other players too standing up to the task. We expect Scotland to win this match.

Scotland will win the match
