Will Namibia rise up in the must-win game?
After their loss to Singapore in the opening match of the tournament, Scotland has found some momentum with back to back victories against Kenya and Namibia. Now they face Namibia in their fourth match of the tournament in Dubai on Tuesday. The team from Namibia hasn’t lived up to its pre-tournament expectations as they lost both matches played by a fair margin. Now taking on Scotland which has found some form will be a hard task for them but the situation is that another loss could well see them off from finishing in the Top 6.
Both the teams are likely to stick with the playing XI of their respective previous match.
The surface in Dubai has produced good sporting games in the season so far and the opening game of the day has usually provided dividends for batsmen, it won’t be anything different from for this game too.
The Scottish all-rounder hasn’t let his team down in the past few months. He has been the most consistent player for the side. In the last five matches, he has an impressive PPM of close to 70 which makes him a must-have player in the Dream11 cricket team.
He has come up with decent starts for the side in the tournament. In the last match, he anchored the innings after a good start, followed by a couple of wickets. He has a PPM of 48 on the tour which makes him a worthy pick in the fantasy cricket team.
He has the highest PPM among Namibia players in the tournament. In both the matches, he has come up with a few handy runs or a couple of wickets. He has a MDTA of 1 on the tour and 1.67 in the last 5 matches.
He is one of the most consistent bowlers for Scotland in the last 5 matches where he chipped in with at least a wicket. He has a PPM of 38 and an MDTA of 1.25 in this period which makes him the most sought after bowler in the match.
