Namibia: win away from securing a place in the top 6
It is the penultimate day of the league phase to the Qualifiers as Namibia face-off Singapore in what will be the last match for both sides. The campaign for both sides has gone in opposite directions as Singapore lost its way by losing 3 games on the trot before a couple of victories. On the flip side, Namibia has bounced back in style by winning 3 games in a row after their hefty defeats in the opening two games. The opposite way means that Namibia is just a win away from securing a place in the top 6 and Singapore is well out of contention from it.
Both the teams are likely to stick with the same playing XI of that of their respective last matches.

He has been only second to Frylinck when it comes to bowling in the tournament. In addition he has also contributed with a couple of crucial knocks in the middle order when needed. He has the highest PPM of close to 80 from both the teams and he also has an MDTA of 1.
He is the joint highest wicket-taker for Namibia in the tournament. In the first 3 games, he may have picked a wicket each but in the last 2 games he has come up with match-defining spells which proved to be fruitful for Namibia. He has a PPM of 61 and an MDTA of 1.25 on the tour.
