THE TEAM NEWS
- Scotland suffered a hammering at the hands of Afghanistan in their opening match of the Super 12s and they will need to produce a big performance to put that effort behind them.
- The Scots were thrashed by 130 runs as they struggled with both bat and ball with the pressure now falling on the likes of George Munsey and Richie Berrington to produce the goods with the bat after Scotland posted just 60 runs in their defeat to the Afghans.
- Namibia pulled off a shock as they defeated Ireland in their final group game to advance to the Super 12 stage of the tournament in what is their first participation in a T20 World Cup.
- The Namibians were excellent as they made it back-to-back wins with David Wiese securing the Player of the Match for the second time in the succession with a superb quick-fire knock of 28* from just 14 balls while he also chipped in with two wickets.
Scotland will be desperate to put their horror show against
Afghanistan behind them in what is a very winnable game against Namibia.
As the lowest-ranked team in the tournament, Namibia have already done
an excellent job to make it to this stage and they can play without any
pressure. They have done very well to win two of their three opening
games but this one could go either way. With that in mind, it may pay to
look for value in the individual player markets and with David Wiese
scoring seven sixes in four games, he can record at least one in this
game to capitalise on Scotland’s struggling bowling unit that allowed
190 runs last time out.
