Preview: Scotland take on Namibia in the Super 12 Group 2 match at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Scotland will be looking to bounce back hard after the thrashing they received against Afghanistan. After a brilliant Round 1 where they won all the three matches to top their group, including beating Bangladesh, they got off to a poor start in the Super 12 as they were beaten by 130 runs by Afghanistan. It was a bad day at the office as they didn’t get their lines right, bowled too full and conceded 190 against Afghanistan.
Bradley Wheal and Chris Greaves went wicketless and conceded at 10.50 and 10 runs respectively. In reply, they just fell in a heap to spin as Mujeeb Ur Rahman (5/20) and Rashid Khan (4/9) wreaked havoc to take 9/29. The Scotland batsmen seemed clueless against the quality spin of Afghanistan on a Sharjah pitch. They will look to bounce back hard.
It’s a special occasion for Namibia. Having won their first-ever match in T20 WC, against the Netherlands in Round 1, they when on to beat Ireland by 8 wickets. They will be looking to make a strong start. David Wiese has been brilliant for them so far and he will be the biggest threat for Scotland.
