Cricket Free Tips | ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, Match 7: Namibia vs Netherlands

In the T20 World Cup 2021’s Group A match, Namibia will face the Netherlands one-on-one. Both Namibia and the Netherlands are currently in trouble after losing their respective opening matches. Namibia had a poor performance against Sri Lanka, losing by seven wickets with 39 balls remaining. They were knocked out in 20 overs and couldn’t stand a chance against a strong Sri Lankan bowling attack.

The Netherlands failed to live up to expectations in their encounter against Ireland, losing by 7 wickets. Max O’Dowd was the lone batsman, and he didn’t get much help from the other end, as they were swept out for 106 runs. We can expect a close match as both teams are looking for their first victory in this tournament.

 

Weather
There is no chance of rain during the game as it will be expected to be a bright and beautiful day.

 

Pitch
Bowlers have performed admirably at this venue and will carry on their winning streak at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. Batters have struggled to put runs, and the first couple of matches have been low-scoring affairs. The current trend is projected to continue during the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in 2021.
