IND vs NAM ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Match 42 Preview:

And we are into the last group stage game of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021! India will be taking on Namibia at Dubai International Cricket Stadium for their final league stage game on the 8th of November. India has regained their momentum a bit late in the tournament, but unfortunately, they are eliminated out of the tournament.

After losing consecutive games, India made a stellar comeback in form and won the next two games by a significant margin, which had also led their Net Run Rate to be the highest among the other teams of Group 2.

On the other hand, Namibia has managed to win just one of their four games so far and is standing second-last on the points table. Their only win came against Scotland. They are already knocked out of the tournament and now have the chance to script history by playing the party spoilers for the Indian side, however, that seems unlikely considering their recent performances.

India last played Scotland at Dubai International Cricket Stadium, where they butchered the weak Scottish side one-sided by 8 wickets. Winning the toss, skipper Virat Kohli opted to bowl first. Indian bowlers bundled out the Scottish side on a mere 85. Shami and Jadeja grabbed 3 wickets each, while Bumrah hunted a couple of scalps.

India became even more ruthless when they came to bat and chased down the total in just 39 balls, to hand India its fastest victory by the number of balls. KL Rahul struck the second-fastest fifty for India, in just 18 balls. Rohit Sharma contributed 30 off 16 balls.

On the other hand, Namibia last played New Zealand at Sharjah, where they lost the game by 52 runs. Namibia bowled first and got a comprehensive start with the ball, they reduced the Kiwis to 96 for 4 after 16 overs, but the last 4 overs of the innings proved to be too costly as they ended up giving away 67 off those 24 deliveries. Kiwis managed 163 for 4 at the end of their innings.

David Wiese, Scholtz, and Erasmus picked a wicket each. Namibia batters, too, got a decent start and added 47 runs for the opening wicket. However, post the first wicket, things started falling apart for the Namibian side and they were reduced to 111 for 7 after their 20 overs. Lingen, Baard, and Zane Green scored 25 runs, 21 runs, and 23 runs respectively.

This will be the first meeting between the two sides. Although out of the tournament, team India will be eyeing to finish off their campaign on a high note with a convincing victory.  Since New Zealand won against Afghanistan, this game will be the last for Virat Kohli as an Indian skipper and the team would want to make it a memorable one for him.
