The question in this game is how much not who and the handicap given to Namibia is pretty hefty at 74.5 runs / 7.5 wickets. The runs could be a concern depending on who wins the toss and although I expect a clean result from Australia, these margins are too large in T20 cricket so I expect Namibia to cover. 

David Warner has put in two good performances (56 runs vs Oman + 39 runs vs England)  to open his account and this match against Namibia could be the game where he explodes, so bank on another 50+ score.

Adam Zampa had his second two-wicket game of this World Cup and I will be riding the Aussie spinner until he lets me down, and I likely hop back on again anyway. 

Head to Head 


This is the first time Australia and Namibia will face each other in Twenty20 cricket format. 

Australia Form


The Aussies are on a high after beating the reigning T20 World Cup holders England on Saturday with their depth with both bat and ball proving too much for the rival Pommies. 

A 70-run opening partnership between David Warner and Travis Head at a run-rate of 11.6 an over got the Australians off to a perfect start, Warner (39 runs) fell first and Head (34 runs) shortly after. Mitch Marsh (35 runs) and Glenn Maxwell (28 runs) added another 65 runs together and continued the damage before Marcus Stoinis (30 runs) led the tail with Australia finishing their 20 overs at 201.  

England responded well with a 73-run opening partnership between Phil Salt and Jos Buttler, but Adam Zampa got the breakthrough in consecutive overs removing Salt then Buttler. England were unable to put together another partnership of more than 30 runs as their run-rate was sunk significantly by the bowling attack of Australia, reaching just 165 before the balls ran out.

Pat Cummins was at his best in his first game of the World Cup, claiming two wickets at an economy rate of just 5.75 per over.

Australia Squad


Mitch Marsh (c), Ashton Agar, Pat Cummins, Tim David, Nathan Ellis, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa.

Namibia Form


It took Namibia a Super Over to get past Oman in their opening match with  David Wiese playing the hero with a 21-run partnership with Gerhard Erasmusin in the extra over before giving away just two runs of two balls before getting the wicket of Naseem Khushi which sealed the win.

Namibia did not have the same fortune in their second match, unable to protect their 155-run total against Scotland, which was heavily influenced by Gerhard Erasmusin 52-run half-century, however, the Namibia captain couldn’t get any long support in the middle. 

Erasmus then took two wickets with the ball but it wasn’t enough with the Scots claiming victory with 9 balls and 5 wickets in-hand. 

Namibia Squad


Gerhard Erasmus (c), Zane Green, Michael Van Lingen, Dylan Leicher, Ruben Trumpelmann, Jack Brassell, Ben Shikongo, Tangeni Lungameni, Niko Davin, JJ Smit, Jan Frylinck, JP Kotze, David Wiese, Bernard Scholtz, Malan Kruger, PD Blignaut
