Namibia vs Scotland – ICC T20 World Cup Betting Tips

Scotland will face Namibia in match 21 of the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup 2021 at the Zayed Cricket Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.

For both teams, the game will be an important one as it will present them their best chance to get on to the points table in a tough group.

However, for the Scottish team, the match is even more significant especially after receiving a thrashing in their first match against Afghanistan on Monday.

Only two times these teams have faced each other in the history of T20 format where on both occasions, it was Namibia who came out on top.

Scotland Form and Team News: 

After suffering a thrashing defeat against Afghanistan in Sharjah in their previous outing, Scotland will be coming in this fixture low on confidence and changes in the starting XI cannot be ruled out as well.

The concerning aspect for the management will be once again the batting performance where despite playing against a strong bowling lineup, they were bundled out for just 60 runs—that too on a pitch where the opposition posted 190 runs—which will have a serious impact on their net run-rate as well.

Therefore, the management will be hoping to see a much better show from the players in the remaining must-win matches.

In the batting department, Scotland will be relying on the likes of captain Kyle Coetzer, opener George Munsey, Calum MacLeod, Richie Berrington and wicketkeeper-batter Matthew Cross to score the bulk of the runs and give the bowlers something to bowl with.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Brad Wheal, Safyaan Sharif, Josh Davey along with the spin duo of Mark Watt and Chris Greaves to produce timely breakthroughs which will help the side in restricting the opposition to a manageable total.

Namibia Form and Team News: 

After securing their place in the main round of the ICC T20 World Cup for the first time, Namibia will enter the match against Scotland with high confidence. 

The side will have a slight advantage compared to their opponents as they’ve already played at the venue in the qualifying round where they thrashed Netherlands by six wickets. 

Therefore, the management will be hoping that the players will use that experience to their advantage and produce a near-perfect display. 

In the batting department, Namibia will be heavily relying on the likes of their captain Gerhard Erasmus, opener Craig Williams, wicketkeeper-batter Zane Green and in-form all-rounders David Wiese, JJ Smit to score bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Michael van Lingen, Ruben Trumpelmann, Wiese, Smit along with the spin duo of Bernard Scholtz, Pikky Ya France to produce timely breakthroughs.

Our Tipster Angle

Both teams will be coming into the contest on the back of contrasting results. On paper, Scotland look like a far solid unit compared to their rivals.
