Preview: India and Namibia face each other in the final round-robin game of World T20 Cup 2021. Notably, the Men in Blue are already out of the semi-final race as New Zealand have already advanced to the knockout stage as the second team from Group 2 following Pakistan. Even a win in this game will keep India two-point short of New Zealand’s. Namibia, on the other, would also fancy their chances of giving a tough fight to a world-class team like India and take the experience home, irrespective of the result.
Analysis: The form Indian openers KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma have picked up midway in the tournament, there could hardly be someone who could be chosen as the captain or vice-captain in place of the two players. Given that the two batters open for India, they have another good opportunity to earn more points. In the bowling department, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have been excellent. Meanwhile, the addition of Ravindra Jadeja in the fantasy XI just gives extra dimension as he, apart from bowling, also gets to bat at times and scores at a brisk rate. On the other hand, star all-rounder David Wiese could also be relied upon, given his experience.
