AUS vs NAM Highlights: Warner fifty takes Australia to easy win

Australia and Namibia have played just two international matches against each other, both of which occurred at the ODI World Cup.

AUS vs NAM Live Score: There you go. Australia have posted a comfortable seven-wicket victory over Namibia in the first warm-up encounter. After the bowlers restricted the opposition to 119/9, David Warner’s fifty helped them complete the target in only 10 overs.

The top contender for the T20 World Cup 2024, Australia, will start its preparations against Namibia. The fourth warm-up match will be played at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain. This may prove to be challenging for Mitchell Marsh and co, as only nine players from their contingent are available for the Australia vs Namibia encounter. Placed in Group B, it’ll be the perfect preview of what’s about to come when they face each other in the group stage. The AUS vs NAM match will start at 4:30 AM IST (7 PM local).

Australia vs Namibia Live Score

Welcome to the live coverage of the 6th warm-up match of the T20 World Cup between Australia and Namibia.

AUS to bowl

The match is already underway, and under-strength Australia have opted to bowl first.

AUS play full strength..

There were fears that Australia would have to field support staff members to be able to play the warm up match, since some of the players were on a break. And George Bailey (selection chief) and Andre Borovec (fielding coach) comprise the XI.

Early Struggles

As expected, Australia have picked up an early wicket here. Hazlewood with the first wicket as opener Michael van Lingen is out for a duck. NAM 12/1 in 3 overs.

Out

Now Hazlewood has another wicket here. He has removed the second opener Nikolaas Davin for 14 from 13. Looks like one of the sub has taken the catch. It is 22/2 after 6 overs.

Out

It is all happening very quickly here. Now Adam Zampa removes Jan Frylinck for 1 as he is trapped in front of wicket. It is 29/3 in 7 overs.

Another one..

A small partnership seems to be brewing between JP Kotze and Gerhard Erasmus here as the score moves to 45/3. Oh no, as we said this, Zampa has removed Kotze. Make it 45/4 now.

Not looking good

And in a space of a few more deliveries, Australia has picked up two more wickets. Zampa has his third, and even Tim David has one. The score moves to 70/6 after 14 overs.

Namibia continue to struggle

And finally Namibia has brought up their 100, albeit after a lot of struggle. They would like to reach at least 120, as it is 100/7 in 18 overs.

Namibia should be happy

Courtesy a late cameos by Zake Green (38 off 30) and Malan Kruger (18 off 11), Namibia manage to reach 119/9 in their 20 overs.

Australia start chase

David Warner and Mitchell Marsh open for AUS and they start well. It should be easy practice for them. It is 9/0 after 1 over.

21 runs

Marsh and Warner get 21 runs from Ruben Trumpelmann’s first overs as the score is 39/0 in 3 overs now.

Quick wickets

Marsh is run out for 18 from 14 and in the next over, Scholtz removes Josh Inglis for 4. It is 55/2 in 5.2 overs.

Warner shows form

David Warner is going great guns here at the moment as he has slammed 43 from 18 deliveries already. AUS need 16 in 11 overs.

That’s it

Australia have won the warm-up fixture with utmost ease. What a performance here by Mitch Marsh’s men. Warner has a fifty in only 20 deliveries. Match ends 10 overs early.
