After surprising Sri Lanka in the World Cup opener on October 16 (Sunday), Namibia will be up against the Netherlands in the fifth game of the T20 World Cup 2022. The Netherlands are into its fourth successive World Cup but are still far from being counted as among the contenders to reach the semis.

Team Analysis:


All-round performances from Jan Frylinck and JJ Smith powered Namibia in their last clash against Sri Lanka. Both the bowling all-rounders stepped up when the team needed them most and guided their side to a comprehensive victory. Frylinck and Smith will be two mandatory picks in the fantasy squad. 

Top-order batter Michael van Lingen has been impressive for the side and the team will rely on him in future games. Loftie-Eaton and Stephan Baard are two decent options to strengthen the middle order. David Wiese, Ben Shikongo and Bernard Scholtz are three good options while making a Fantasy XI.


Bas de Leede and Fred Klaassen were terrific in the game against the United Arab Emirates on October 16 (Sunday). 23-year-old Paul van Meekeren is also a good option as he was quite economical against UAE. Tom Cooper,  Max O'Dowd  and Vikramjeet are experienced players who can be considered while forming a fantasy team.

Probable XIs:


Max ODowd, Vikramjit Singh, Bas de Leede, Tom Cooper, Colin Ackermann, Scott Edwards (c & wk), Roelof van der Merwe, Tim Pringle, Logan van Beek, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren


Michael Van Lingen, Divan La Cock, Stephan Baard, Gerhard Erasmus (c), Jan Nicol Loftie- Eaton, JJ Smit, David Wiese, Zane Green, Jan Frylinck, Bernard Scholtz, Ben Shikongo
