They began their campaign with a six-wicket win over Bangladesh before and followed it with two more wins to reach the top of the table. However, a flying Scotland was brought to the ground on Monday after suffering their first game of the Super 12 round against Afghanistan.

Afghanistan batsmen tore apart Scotland as they notched a mammoth 190-run total in the first innings. Safyaan Sharif picked 2 wickets for 33 runs in 4 overs. Josh Davey picked one wicket but went for 41 runs in his four overs, while Mark Watt claimed one for 23.

In reply, Scotland was bundled out for just 60 runs. George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer gave a decent start until Mujeeb Ur Rahman broke the partnership in the fourth over. Once Coetzer went back to the hut, wickets kept falling at regular intervals and Scotland batsmen fell like a pack of cards in no time. They would look to make a strong comeback ahead of the next game against Namibia.

Namibia will proud of the way they have performed in the tournament so far. To reach the Super 12 stage is indeed a big achievement for T20 them. Even if they don’t win a game in the Super 12 round, they should be proud of the way they played in the tournament. Namibia began their campaign with a defeat at the hands of Sri Lanka but then made a terrific turnaround as they beat Netherlands and Ireland to seal a place for the next round.

Their last game against Ireland was potentially a knock-out. Namibia bowled well to restrict Ireland to just 125 runs in the first innings. David Wiese continued his fine run as he returned with figures of 2 for 22 in 4 overs. Jan Frylinck was the pick of the bowlers, claiming 3 for 21 in 4 overs. Namibia chased down the score in 18.3 overs, thanks to a significant contribution from the top four.

Craig Williams (15 off 16) and Zane Green (23 off 32) made a decent contribution before Gerhard Erasmus and David Wiese took the game away from them. The skipper scored a match-winning half-century off 49 balls, while David Wiese scored 28 runs off 14 balls.
