Namibia vs Netherlands

Namibia (Match Odds – 1.55):


Gerhard Erasmus will be pleased with his team’s performance against Sri Lanka in their first game. The team proved the critics wrong by defeating Sri Lanka by 55 runs. It was a team effort, and their bowlers made excellent use of the conditions. Erasmus would like his team to maintain their current form and win this game to strengthen their position.

Michael van Lingen and Divan la Cock were sent off cheaply in the previous game and will look to make amends here. Although the middle order scored runs, the trio of Stephan Baard, Erasmus, and Nicol Loftie-Eaton will look to convert their starts into big scores. With their hitting abilities, David Wiese, Jan Frylinck, and JJ Smith add punch to the lower middle order.

Wiese and Erasmus are experienced bowlers, and the team expects them to take early wickets and put the team in a good position. Bernard Scholtz and Ben Shikongo were excellent in the middle overs against Sri Lanka, and they will look to replicate that performance in this game. Jan Frylinck and Smith round out the side’s strong bowling attack and arrive full of confidence.

Full Squad:

Gerhard Erasmus (c), JJ Smit, Divan la Cock, Stephan Baard, Nicol Loftie Eaton, Jan Frylinck, David Wiese, Ruben Trumpelmann, Zane Green, Bernard Scholtz, Tangeni Lungameni, Michael van Lingen, Ben Shikongo, Karl Birkenstock, Lohan Louwrens, Helao Ya France

Netherlands (Match Odds – 2.45):


Scott Edwards’ team is coming off a three-wicket victory over the United Arab Emirates. They bowled well, limiting UAE to 111 runs, but struggled in the run chase, with their batsmen squandering their chances. They can’t afford to do the same against Namibia and must put on a better performance in this game.

Max O’Dowd and Vikramjit Singh must perform well at the top, as both players saw action in the previous game. To put the side in a commanding position, Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, and Tom Cooper must form partnerships in the middle order. Along with Roelof van der Merwe, Edwards is a clean hitter who must add quick runs.

After an excellent performance in the previous game, their bowlers would be confident, and the side would need early breakthroughs from Fred Klaassen and Tim Pringle. Bas de Leede was brilliant in the previous game, and he will have to bowl tight lines with Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren, and Logan van Beek in the middle overs.

Full Squad:

Scott Edwards (c), Colin Ackermann, Shariz Ahmad, Logan van Beek, Tom Cooper, Brandon Glover, Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen, Bas de Leede, Paul van Meekeren, Roelof van der Merwe, Stephan Myburgh, Teja Nidamanuru, Max O’Dowd, Tim Pringle, Vikram Singh

The batting all-rounder scored 14 runs but also took 3-19 against UAE. It was his third consecutive match with three wickets.

Fred Klaassen

After strong showings in the T20 Blast and the Men’s Hundred in the UK this summer, it was no surprise to see Klaassen produce the best bowling figures for his team in their first game.

Possible Playing XI:

Namibia vs Netherlands Toss Prediction

At this venue, most teams have won games by chasing scores in the past. The wicket here is good, allowing batters to play their strokes freely. However, it can be difficult to create doubts in the minds of the batsmen at the start of the game. As a result, the team that wins the toss will almost certainly choose to bowl first.

Namibia vs Netherlands Pitch Report

Simonds Stadium in Geelong is a small venue with a history of high-scoring games. Batting is simple on this track because the ball comes to the bat easily. Fast bowlers have done well by moving the ball in the air. It is a difficult venue for spinners because there is no assistance on this surface.

On October 18, there will be cloud cover in Geelong. We anticipate more difficult batting conditions than in previous years. The bowlers would receive assistance in this game. To feel confident, the team batting first should have at least 160 runs on the board.

Namibia vs Netherlands Prediction

The Netherlands will be concerned about their batsmen’s form. Their batsmen looked rusty in the previous game and must get back into form if they are to defeat a confident Namibian team. Namibia performed admirably in the previous game, and their bowlers are in excellent condition. In this game, the side will start as favorites due to the overcast conditions. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

Namibia is the favourite to beat Netherlands at the odds of 1.55.

Namibia vs Netherlands Most Recommended Player for Bet:

Stephan Baard scored 26 runs off 24 balls in Namibia’s win over Sri Lanka, and he is our pick to take the most wickets against the Netherlands.
