NAM vs UAE Match Prediction
At the Simmons Stadium in Geelong on Thursday, the ninth match of the ICC T20 World Cup qualifiers 2022 will feature Namibia and the UAE. Let us look at NAM vs UAE Match Prediction in detail.
The most fortunate team of all. Despite losing to the Netherlands on Tuesday, Namibia is still in the running to make the Super 12. They have the greatest NRR in their group—1.277—and need to overcome the UAE to advance. The likelihood of such occurring is very high.
The three hitters from Namibia to keep an eye on in the tenth game of the ICC T20 World Cup T20 qualifiers are Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Stephan Baard, and Michael van Lingen. Jan Frylinck and David Wiese are both all-around players. Ben Shikongo and Bernard Scholtz will be in charge of Namibia’s bowling team.
Despite losing both of its games, UAE is also still in contention to go to the Super 12. However, after their 79-run defeat to Sri Lanka on Tuesday, they are now in a position where they would need a big miracle.
In the UAE’s lineup, Muhammad Waseem and Chirag Suri are the two strongest players. As a wicketkeeper, Vritiya Aravind. As an all-arounder and wise choice for vice-captain of the dream 11 squad, Basil Hameed is mentioned. Karthik Meiyappan will be in charge of bowling for the UAE.
