Previous Records

Namibia and UAE have been head to head in 4 ODIs and 1 T20. All the 4 ODIs were won by UAE and the only T20 match that was played was won by Namibia. This will be the 2nd time that they will be meeting each other in the T20 contest.   

As we had seen last year, the Namibian team performed brilliantly in the group stage matches and qualified for the 1st time in the T20 World Cup. They were appreciated by the cricketing fraternity. They will be playing qualifiers this year too to qualify for the Super 12.  Their first challenge will be to defeat the in-form Sri Lankan team. It will be one hell of a task to defeat Sri Lanka as we have seen the performance of the Sri Lankan team in the Asia Cup 2022.

Out of the 5 matches the Namibian team played in the super 12 of 2021 T20 world cup, they had won only 1. The Namibian team is new to this sport. In 2021, it was their 1st time playing any big cricketing event. They have some fresh talent which is lacking exposure to international cricket. Their captain Gerhard is a fine player who has 927 runs in 38 T20s with an average of 34.33 and strike rate of 131.48. He also holds a century in this format.

David Wiese who was a South African player played from Namibian side in the 2021 T20 world cup. Wiese has 496 runs in 40 innings with a strike rate of 134.1 and has an average of 26.1. Ruben Trumpelmann is a left arm fast bowler of the Namibian team. Though He does not have a good bowling record, he can bowl nicely. Craig George William is a right-Handed Batsman with an average of 27.6 in 37 T20s with 855 runs. He is a fine batter too. All these players will be crucial for Namibia.

The UAE team also made it to the group stage of the 2014 T20 World Cup. The top wicket taker from UAE team is Ehsan Khan who has 9 wickets in 3 matches with an average of 9.00. Another prominent bowler from UAE team is Vinoth Baskaran who has 6 wickets in 3 matches with a not so good average of 15.16. Then comes Basil Hameed who has 5 wickets in 3 matches in T20s.

Top batsman from the UAE team is Yasim Murtaza with 130 runs in 3 matches with a wonderful average of 43.3. On the 2nd spot is Muhammad Waseem who is a right handed batsman. He has 111 runs in 3 matches. In 3rd spot is Babar Hayat, who has just 97 runs in 3 matches.


The Namibian team is a bit better than UAE and has more chances to win the match. The UAE team hardly has any youngsters and their side is looking weak against the Namibian team.
