Namibia Vs Netherlands turned out to be a nail biter, with Netherlands scoring a narrow win over Namibia at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Netherlands dominated Namibia before doing admirably with the bat in Geelong to secure a five-wicket victory and secure a spot in the Super 12s, despite a minor glitch.
Namibia struggled to get going after choosing to bat first as Netherlands bowled effectively. Jan Frylinck, who was named Player of the Match in Namibia’s match against Sri Lanka, top-scored for Namibia with a 43-ball 48, but with only 121 for 6 as their total, there wasn’t much else to say about their innings.
The chase started well for Netherlands thanks to a strong opening stand of 59 runs between Max O’Dowd and Vikramjit Singh, but a flurry of wickets in the 16th and 17th overs pushed the game to the final over before the job was done with three balls in hand.
If UAE beat Sri Lanka in the second game of the day, Netherlands will be through to the main round.
