Pakistan vs Namibia – ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Betting Tips

Namibia will face Pakistan in match 31 of the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup 2021 in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

The game is a must-win for the Gerhard Erasmus’ men who are coming after suffering a thrashing defeat against Afghanistan in their previous outing.

The management will be hoping to see the players produce a much better display in the matches to come.

On the other hand, for the Men-in-Green, the match presents an opportunity to test their bench strength ahead of the semi-finals.

This will be the first-ever contest between the teams in the history of the T20 format.

Namibia Form and Team News

After suffering a comprehensive 62-run defeat in their previous outing against Afghanistan, Namibia is likely to make some changes in the starting XI for their all-important match against Pakistan.

In the batting department, the team will be relying on the likes of captain Erasmus, openers Craig Williams, Michael van Lingen, wicketkeeper-batter Zane Green and all-rounders David Wiese, JJ Smit 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 Ruben Trumpelmann, Jan Frylinck, Wiese, Smit along with the spin duo of Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Bernard Scholtz to restrict the opposition to a manageable total.

Pakistan Form and Team News

After three consecutive wins in the competition, Pakistan will enter the match against Namibia in high confidence.

The management will be extremely pleased with the overall performance of the players in the three tough matches against arch-rivals India, New Zealand and Afghanistan.

Since the Green Caps’ have almost secured their place in the next round of the competition, the management might opt to make a few changes in the starting XI to give some players a much-needed rest whereas it will also allow others to showcase their talent.

The only concern for the Men-in-Green would be the performance of star pacer Hasan Ali, who has leaked runs in all three matches, especially at the back end of the innings. He will likely be replaced by young Mohammad Wasim for the contest.

All-rounder Imad Wasim, who did not look fit in the match against Afghanistan, might get rest and he is likely to be replaced by Mohammad Nawaz.

In the batting department, Pakistan will be heavily relying on the likes of their captain and star batter Babar Azam, in-form wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan, experienced Shoaib Malik, Fakhar Zaman and hard-hitting Asif Ali to score the bulk of the runs and put the opposition under pressure.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, Wasim along with the spin trio of Shadab Khan, Nawaz and Mohammad Hafeez to dismantle the opposition’s batting lineup by claiming timely wickets.
