T20 WC 2021: PAK vs NAM Preview – High-flying Pakistan seek their 4th victory

Pakistan would be aiming to continue their bright start to the T20 World Cup 2021 with another win in the Super 12 round. They will be facing Namibia, who have caused some surprises in this tournament but are not seen as a threat against the quality which Pakistan will put on the field. Having said that, Pakistan’s intentions would be to first book their semi-final ticket.

They have defeated India, New Zealand and Afghanistan, hence they might just go unbeaten in this round, given their last two fixtures against Namibia and Scotland. The goal is quite realistic at this point. However, they should be wary just a tad against the African nation, which has risen higher to the occasion and played their best cricket in possibly the last decade. Yet, don’t be surprised if this is a walk in the park for the Asian giants.

Match Info

Pakistan vs Namibia, 31st Match, Super 12 Group 2

Venue: Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi

Time: 7:30 PM

Head to head:

This is the first time these two countries will take on each other in a T20I match.

Team News:

Pakistan: There is absolutely no reason why Pakistan should make a change in their XI. They have got their combination sorted for this tournament and it has come off each and every time. They have a balanced unit with no injury and would know the importance of continuing their momentum as they finalise their place in the semi-finals.

Namibia: The Namibian side which played in the last game wasn’t ideal for a T20 match by any stretch of the imagination. They are slightly dependent on individual performances and they would want their star and key players to step up. The challenge will be tough against Pakistan, but their best bet is the XI which was fielded against Afghanistan. They also have no injury concerns.
