Head to Head

Namibia and Netherlands have only met once. That match took place in 2019 with Netherlands winning by 44 runs.

Namibia Form

Namibia began their T20 Cricket World Cup with a defeat in Abu Dhabi against Sri Lanka. With just two games remaining Namibia will have to win both matches to have any chance of progressing.

As the lowest ranked side at the World Cup, Namibia were never expected to qualify for the Super 12 stage. There is belief in the camp however that this side can upset the odds in at least one match.

Against Sri Lanka, the Southern African nation failed to put enough runs on the board to place any pressure on an out of form Sri Lanka outfit. Craig Williams top scored with 29 runs in a total of 96.

Sri Lanka cruised home with more than six overs to spare in a seven wicket win.

Namibia Injuries & Team News

Namibia don’t really have many options. They will likely stick with the same side that lost the opening match.

Netherlands Form

Netherlands will be bitterly disappointed with their opening performance against Ireland. They suffered a seven wicket defeat after a horror batting show where they lost four wickets in four balls at one point.

Batting first. Max O’Dowd scored 51 runs but only one other batsman reached 20 runs. In fact, only two others scored more than 10 runs as three stalwarts, Colin Ackermann, Roelof van der Merwe and Ryan ten Doeschate were dismissed in the space of three balls.

The 106-run total was never going to be enough. Ireland scored the runs in just over 15 overs to win by seven wickets.

Netherlands Injuries & Team News

Netherlands will be looking to start with the same side. They have some quality players in their side and this is an opportunity to fix the mess they made in their opener.
