Preview: Namibia and Ireland face each other in their final match of the World T20 Cup 2021 on Thursday. Both the sides have registered one win each so far, however a better net run rate helps Ireland take the second spot in the Group A points table, while Namibia are at the third spot. The equation is simple for both the teams, win the game on Thursday and advance to the World Cup proper. Given that a win will be a ticket for the next level, both the teams will definitely look to present their best game on the table.
Analysis: David Wiese is in amazing form. He coming on the back of an unbeaten knock of 66 off just 40 balls alongside picking up a wicket in the same game. It would be good to choose him as captain or at least as vice-captain. Gerhard Merwe Erasmus has been the another positive for Namibia as he has scored decently at the middle order. Talking about Ireland, they have a lot many performers in their side. All-rounder Curtis Campher and pacer Joshua Little are valuable inputs in anyone’s fantasy team. Meanwhile, opener Paul Stirling and Ireland skipper Andrew Balbirnie are another good picks to fetch good fantasy points.
