KL Rahul hit 50 from 19 balls in India’s big win over Scotland. We are backing the opener to be their highest run scorer in this game. With the ball, Jasprit Bumrah took 2-10 from 3.4 overs on Friday. He is our tip for India’s top wicket taker against Namibia.
Opener Michael van Lingen made a run-a-ball 25 and top scored for Namibia against New Zealand on Friday. He is a strong choice for their highest run scorer against India. All-rounder David Wiese has 8 wickets in the tournament so far and is our recommendation for Namibia’s top wicket taker in this match.
Against Scotland, the India batters took no prisoners and attacked from ball one. We expect the same in this match and are predicting KL Rahul to take the Player of The Match Award.

India Team News & Playing 11
IND Team News
Varun Chakravarthy returned to the India side for the big win over Scotland in Dubai. Although he went wicketless, we expect him to retain his place in the team meaning no immediate recall for Shardul Thakur. India have no injury worries at present.
IND Key Players
KL Rahul- the talented opener has been in excellent form for the majority of 2021. He hit 6 sixes and 3 fours in Friday’s half-century.
Rohit Sharma- the attacking opening batter is tipped to take over the captaincy at the end of this T20 World Cup campaign. He hit 30 from 16 balls against Scotland.
Jasprit Bumrah- the pace bowler has performed consistently throughout the tournament and picked up wickets even in the big defeat to New Zealand.
IND Team Form
After experiencing four successive defeats in this format, Virat Kohli’s side have now turned the tide and won their last two games.
Karl Birkenstock and Bernard Scholtz came into the side ahead of the defeat against New Zealand taking the places of Jan Frylinck and Ben Shikongo. Frylinck had been suffering from dehydration but should come back into the side after a strong tournament with the ball.
NAM Key Players
Gerhard Erasmus- the captain has been a very solid performer with bat and ball during the tournament. He is also a livewire in the field.
Michael van Lingen- the opener top scored against New Zealand and he will take confidence from that innings ahead of facing the India attack.
David Wiese- the experienced all-rounder has taken Namibia to a new level during this competition. He is their most talented player with bat and ball.

Who will win India vs Namibia T20 Match?
With net run rate potentially important in this game, expect the India openers to come out of the blocks and swing hard from the first ball.
Namibia put in a very determined and battling performance against New Zealand but were still beaten by 52 runs. If they can replicate that in this game and bat for 20 overs again then that will be a success for them. Our prediction is a large win for India.
India are favourites to beat Namibia at odds of 1.025
