Namibia vs Netherlands T20 World Cup 2021 match at abu dhabi report

Abu Dhabi. Namibia shared a 51-ball 93 for the fourth wicket with Davis Weiss (David Wiese) and captain Gerhard Erasmus (32) for the fourth wicket in the first round of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Wednesday. In the A match, they defeated the Netherlands ranked higher by 6 wickets with 6 balls to spare. It was debutant Namibia’s first win in a first round match. Experienced David Weisz has also played T20 Internationals for South Africa, facing 40 balls and hitting 4 fours and 5 sixes. This is his first international half-century, his innings turned the dice of the match in a few minutes.

Namibia had lost 3 for 52 in 9 overs but the 36-year-old Weiss single-handedly helped the Netherlands beat the Netherlands in 19 overs. He completed his half-century in just 29 balls by hitting a six on the captain of the rival team, Peter Seelar. During this, he hit scintillating sixes on the spinners of the Netherlands. Apart from captain Erasmus (four fours and a six in 22 balls), JJ Smit scored an unbeaten 14 off eight balls in the end. Smit ensured the team’s victory by hitting two fours in the last two balls of the 19th over.

With this win, Namibia remain in the race for the Super-12 stage and will have to beat Ireland in the final match of the first round. Namibia was defeated by Sri Lanka in the opening match. The Netherlands have now lost both their matches and their chances of reaching the next stage are slim. Earlier, the Netherlands posted a competitive score of 164 for four with opener Max O’Dowd (70) scoring a second consecutive half-century and an 82-run partnership with Colin Ackerman (35).

O’Dowd, who scored 51 runs against Ireland in the previous match, scored runs easily against the bowlers. His 57-ball innings included six fours and a six. It was not easy to stroke the wicket and his opening partner Stephen Mayberg (17) was happy to score runs according to the ball. In an attempt to play John Frylink’s ball high, Mayberg was caught by Bard at point.

The Netherlands team had high hopes from Rolf van der Merwe (6) but he was dismissed cheaply by fast bowler David Weiss. However, Ackerman made good use of his legs. O’Dowd completed his half-century by hitting a boundary in the cover area off spinner Bernard Scholtz. With this shot, the team’s 100 runs were also completed in the 14th over. Pacer JJ Smit impressed with his precise deliveries in the slog overs as the Netherlands batsmen were unable to score runs easily. Weiss also took 1 wicket.
