Put into bat, New Zealand had a shaky start as David Wiese removed in-form Martin Guptill inside the powerplay. Daryl Mitchell followed him back soon. But James Neesham and Glenn Phillips made sure New Zealand reached a competitive total of 163/4.

After early wickets, Kane Williamson and Devon Conway then steady Kiwi’s innings before Namibia bounced back in the game after skipper Gerard Erasmus removed Kane Williamson in the 13th over. However, Glenn Phillips and James Neesham then accounted for 76 runs partnership in the end & helped New Zealand post a good total of 163/4, with 67 coming off in the final four over.

In reply, Namibia had a solid start as both the openers Stephan Baard and Michael van Lingen got off to a good start and added 47 runs for the opening wicket. New Zealand enjoyed the first success in eight over James Neesham got rid off M van Lingen and since then it was all New Zealand’s game. Mitchell Santner then removed Stephan Baard in the ninth over and then there was no looking back for the Kiwis as they restricted the minnows for 111/7 in the allotted overs to secure 52 runs win.

Tim Southee and Trent Boult were the picks of bowlers for New Zealand as the pace duo returned with two wickets each. Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, and James Neesham too picked up a wicket each.

New Zealand have done well to bounce back from their opening game defeat to Pakistan to place them in pole position to make the semis from Group 2. Kane Williamson and Co. have registered wins over India and Scotland since, and face Namibia in their next encounter. The Blackcaps will hope to rake in a huge victory and beef up their net run rate, before heading into the game against Afghanistan. Williamson would be keen that his side avoid any slip-ups when they take the field in Sharjah.

Namibia meanwhile clinched a fantastic win over Scotland, but have fallen short against the rest of their Super 12 opponents. They fell to a 45-run defeat against Pakistan in their last game, despite the heroics of all-rounder David Wiese.

New Zealand vs Namibia pitch report and weather forecast

Sharjah is one of the toughest tracks in the T20 World Cup which has assisted the spinners the most. In Super 12s, spinners have picked 35 wickets here and conceded runs well under 7 runs/over. Teams chasing have had a fine record at the venue and expect the captain winning the toss to bowl first. With this being a day game, expect the temperatures to range in mid 30-degree Celsius range. Dew is unlikely to make much difference, with the game being played in the day.
