Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua is all prepared to host England and Namibia for their final encounter of the group stage in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Namibia vs England encounter is scheduled to be played at the stadium on Saturday, June 15. 

Led by Gerhard Erasmus, Namibia has played 3 games in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. They have lost 2 games and won 1. They won their opening game against Oman in the super over with a thrilling show. 

However, Namibia later lost to Scotland by 5 wickets and Australia by 9 wickets. Hence, they are already eliminated from the tournament and cannot qualify for the Super 8 round. However, the African nation would aim to end the tournament with a good show. 

Jos Buttler is the skipper of England in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. They are the defending champions of the tournament. However, with their first match against Scotland getting washed out, they have a narrow competition with Scotland to get into the Super 8. 

England has looked powerful with batting but has struggled a little with their bowling department so far. Ahead of the Namibia vs England clash, below are weather and pitch reports of Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua.
