It was a very close contest in the first game, with the United Arab Emirates snatching a 1-wicket win against Namibia in a low-scoring game. The hosts would like to improve their position on the points table in the ICC Cricket World Cup League Two 2019-23 by winning the next game. In the last game, two teams scored less than 200 runs, and it will be interesting to see how batsmen on both sides approach this game.
The Namibian side continues to disappoint, and now they have five consecutive losses in this tournament. Their batting line-up has looked rusty in the last few games, which is a worrying factor for the team. The United Arab Emirates has won the last five out of six games at this venue, and it will be interesting to see if they can extend their record.
Chundangapoyil Rizwan would have mixed feelings about the last game. While his bowlers did a brilliant job, the batsmen were found wanting and nearly lost the game. As they go into the next game, the UAE skipper shall expect a better show from his batsmen in this game as they look to strengthen their position on the points table.
A good start from Muhammad Waseem and Vriitya Aravind will put the side in a comfortable position in this game. The middle order struggled in the last game, and the side must see runs from Chirag Suri, Chundangapoyil Rizwan, and Asif Khan. Aayan Afzal Khan and Rohan Mustafa add to the side’s batting strength in the lower middle order.
Junaid Siddique and Hazrat Bilal bowled good lines with the new ball and will look to continue with the same form. Zahoor Khan and Aayan Afzal Khan will enjoy these conditions, and the team will look at them for wickets. Karthik Meiyappan and Mustafa add to the side’s variety with the ball.

Gerhard Erasmus would expect a miracle. The team has been going from bad to worse in recent games. They collapsed like a pack of cards in the last game. Erasmus would be proud of his bowlers as they nearly did the impossible and nearly defended the second-lowest total in ODIs. The side needs to play positive cricket here and win the game.
Lohandre Louwrens and Karl Birkenstock must deliver at the top, as it will add to the side’s confidence in the game. Erasmus is battling poor form and needs to build partnerships with Michael van Lingen and Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton. Zane Green is a good player down the order and will look to add runs with Pikky Ya France down the order.
The bowling attack will take pride in their performance in the last game. Ruben Trumpelmann and Ben Shikongo bowled brilliantly with the new ball and will look to repeat the same show. Tangeni Lungameni and Bernard Scholtz also bowled well, making the side confident. They will also expect a good show in the supporting role from Nicol Loftie-Eaton, and Karl Birkenstock.

It will be a hot and humid day in Dubai. The surface was a minefield in the last game, and we may see a similar track in this game. Batsmen have to play to the merit of the ball and avoid taking risks. The side batting first will be happy to have 260 runs or more on the board on this surface.
Dubai International Cricket Stadium is the largest stadium in UAE. The surface is slow, but the fast outfield offers scoring opportunities for the batsmen. Spinners enjoy bowling here as the large size of the ground offers them an extra cushion. There isn’t support for the fast bowlers on this wicket.
The wicket was a difficult one to bat in the last game. We might also see a similar surface in this game, and batting won’t be easy as batsmen need to get used to the pace of the wicket. The side winning the toss shouldn’t hesitate to bowl first.
Namibia has hit a dead end with its form and confidence. Their batsmen have been struggling since the tour of Nepal. The side will need its middle order to deliver the goods to win here. UAE has been tough to beat at home and has a bowling attack suited for these conditions. It will make them favorites to win the game.
