Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Match 42: India vs Namibia

India will face Namibia in their final group stage match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. The dead-rubber game between the two countries will be held at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.

Both teams have been eliminated from the competition. India’s dreams of reaching the semi-finals were dashed on November 7 when the Kiwis defeated Afghanistan. On the other hand, Namibia has two points from four games and hopes to finish positively.

This will be Virat Kohli’s and Ravi Shastri’s final match as captain and head coach of the Indian T20 team.

 

Weather
Another sunny evening is forecast, with temperatures ranging between 27~29°C.

 

Pitch
The ground in Dubai is expected to be bowler-friendly, especially in the first innings. Because the ball will swing around early in the game, both teams will be happy to bowl first after winning the toss.
