Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Match 36: New Zealand vs Namibia

On Friday, New Zealand will play Namibia in the 36th match of the T20 World Cup 2021. New Zealand is getting closer to securing a place in the playoffs. They must, however, avoid making any mistakes in their final two games. They beat Scotland by 16 runs in their last match, giving them their second tournament win. Martin Guptill led them with the bat, who scored 93 runs.

Namibia performed admirably in their first-ever T20 World Cup, reaching the Super 12 stages. If they want to succeed at the most significant level, they must improve their game against top-quality opponents. They bowled effectively with the new ball against Pakistan but gave up many runs late in the game, which hurt them as they lost by 45 runs. They are in fifth place in Group 2 with two points after one win and two losses.


The temperature will be above 30 degrees with bright skies.


The pitch in Sharjah is slower, as observed in previous games, and batsmen must fight hard for their runs. The pacers aren’t expected to get much help off the ground, which the batters will take advantage of right away. After winning the toss, both teams will try to chase, with 150-160 being the average at the site.
