  • Netherlands crawled over the line vs United Arab Emirates with a ball to spare in a nail-biting first group game for them, but victory means that they have already bettered their T20 World Cup campaign last season.
  • Bas de Leede continues to attract attention for his performances, the young all-rounder taking three wickets with the ball, whilst the experience of Netherlands bowling attack helped pin down UAE and they’ll be hoping to achieve the same feat here.


  • Namibia were one of the real success stories in 2021 and have already caused a huge stir in the 2022 T20 World Cup, shocking Asia Cup winners Sri Lanka at the weekend by beating them comprehensively, 55 runs the margin of victory.
  • Most impressive about Namibia’s win was their batting, which showed that even if star all-rounder David Wiese fails (which he did after being dismissed for 0), they still have more than enough batting quality to gain big scores against the opposition.


Whilst Netherlands showed their high class with the ball against United Arab Emirates, in Namibia they face a nation who have already dominated one extremely strong bowling attack in Sri Lanka, who won’t be phased by the Dutch. Question marks still remain over Netherlands’ batting, and their strength-in-depth down the order, whilst this is far less of a worry for Namibia with the likes of Wiese and JJ Smit coming in at numbers 7 and 8 respectively. This makes Namibia the team worth backing for victory.
