Namibia will lock horns with United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the 10th match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022 at Simonds Stadium in Geelong on Thursday, October 20.
Namibia have the best NRR compared to other sides in Group A, and a victory against UAE would take them to the Super 12 stage.
UAE, on the other hand, have had the worst tournament, losing both their matches, and they are almost out of the Super 12s race. Though, they can spoil Namibia’s party, who are close to going through the next stage.
The track at the Simonds Stadium generally offers decent support to batters in the first half. Chasing is not an ideal option at this venue, as the surface tends to get slower.
Namibia: Gerhard Erasmus (c), Michael van Lingen, Divan la Cock, Stephan Baard, Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Jan Frylinck, David Wiese, JJ Smit, Zane Green (wk), Bernard Scholtz, Ben Shikongo
