Namibia made a good comeback in the tournament by winning against the Netherlands by six wickets and is currently at the 3rd position on the Group A, ICC T20 World Cup 2021 points table.
The opening pair, Baard and Zane Green, gave a decent start but were slow in their approach. At No.3, Craig Williams also did not score much, but skipper Erasmus has been consistent and scoring runs in the middle. The star of the previous game was David Wiese, scoring 66* runs and winning the match for the team.
The bowlers’ performance continues to struggle even in the last match. Jan Frylinck and David Wiese managed to pick up two and one wickets, respectively. Namibia has a chance to qualify for Super 12 if their bowlers perform well and win their next match against Ireland.
After an excellent start to the tournament, Ireland lost their 2nd match and are currently at the 2nd position on Group A’s ICC T20 World Cup Points Table.
Paul Stirling and Kevin O’Brien have struggled to provide an excellent start to the team in both matches. At No.3, skipper Balbirnie played well but missed his fifty by nine runs, but Daleny got out early in the previous game. Curtis Campher scored some runs but was slow in his approach.
The bowlers are picking up wickets consistently, but they need to control the flow of runs. Mark Adair has been the consistent wicket-taker of the team, and Joshua Little picked up four wickets in the last match. Ireland must win their next game against Namibia to qualify for Super 12.
