New Zealand vs Namibia Live Streaming ICC T20 World Cup 2021
New Zealand take on Namibia in the Super 12 Group 2 match at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium in Sharjah.
After suffering a defeat against Pakistan, New Zealand have got back on track with two wins in two, against India and Scotland. Every match is crucial right now and the Kiwis will be looking to stay ahead of the curve with a win over Namibia. Ideally, they would want to win big so the net run rate remains healthy with India and Afghanistan breathing down their neck.
They would have liked to win big against Scotland but the margin was just 15 runs. Against Namibia, they would look for a bigger win given the fact that India beat Afghanistan by a good margin of 66 runs to stay alive. Martin Guptill scored a brilliant 93 against Scotland but the middle order stuttered before Glenn Phillips steadied the ship with Guptill to take New Zealand to 172/5. The Kiwis would need Kane Williamson, and Devon Conway to hit top form before they face Afghanistan in a crunch clash.
Their spinners will again be the key on the slow track of Sharjah. Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner have bowled frugal spells and accounted for wickets a swell. Sodhi went for 42 against Scotland and had a rare off day, he would be looking to bounce back along with Adam Milne who went for 36 runs from his four.
Namibia will be looking to stay alive in the competition. They have won 1 and lost two of their three matches and would need to win big against India and the Kiwis to stand any chance and would need the other results to go their way as well.
They bowled really well in the first half against Pakistan and restricted them to 59/0 but in the next half, they went for a plenty and conceded 130 in the last 10. A much better bowling effort is the need of the hour. They were decent with the bat but never really got the momentum going and fell short by 45 runs. They will need to go all out in order to topple an in-form NZ side.
