In a thrilling contest which went down to the wire, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) defeated Namibia to knock them out of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2022.

Chasing 149 for victory at Simonds Stadium in Geelong, Namibia were almost out of the game after losing seven wickets for just 69, but their star-allrounder David Wiese yet again stood up and bailed his team out to take the contest to the last over.

Wiese stitched a stunning 70-run partnership for the eighth wicket with Ruben Trumpelmann and Namibia were looking set to pull off a thrilling victory. But with Wiese’s dismissal in the final over, Namibia lost the match by seven runs. Wiese had to depart after playing a brilliant knock of 55 from 36 deliveries.

Earlier, Muhammad Waseem powered UAE to a competitive 148/3 in their allotted 20 overs. The opening batter smashed a brilliant half-century, scoring 50 off 41 deliveries with the help of three sixes and a four.

Apart from Waseem, captain Chundangapoyil Rizwan (43 not out) and Basil Hameed (25 not out) chipped in with valuable contributions, making sure their side cross the 140-run mark.
