THE TEAM NEWS
- Afghanistan looked set to cause a huge upset in the T20 World Cup but an over of pure quality from Pakistan’s Asif Ali turned the game on its head and the Afghans ultimately suffered defeat.
- That would have been back-to-back wins for Afghanistan after they had previously swept Scotland aside but they will be confident that they have the ability with the ball to make an immediate return to winning ways in this one with Rashid Khan and Mujeeb Ur Rahman key to any success.
- Namibia made it three straight wins at the T20 World Cup as they earned their first ever success in the tournament proper with victory over Scotland in their opening game of the Super 12 stage.
- It was a solid all-round effort for the Namibians as they claimed a four-wicket success but they may find it more difficult to score runs in this one and their batting could come under the spotlight against a quality Afghanistan bowling attack.
Afghanistan almost put themselves right into contention for an
unlikely spot in the semi-finals but they could not hold on against
Pakistan last time out. They will be looking to put that behind them at
the first time of asking and should be able to do so against Namibia.
The Namibians have won three matches in a row but this is a much tougher
task for them and the Afghans’ bowling unit should prove to be the
major difference between the two teams.
