Australia (AUS), the 2021 champions, are set to face Namibia (NAM)

Australia is coming off a commanding win against arch-rivals England by 36 runs in Barbados. The Aussies became the first team to post a total of 200 or more in the ongoing edition of the tournament, amassing 201/7 before restricting England to 165/6. In their opening match, Australia defeated Oman by 39 runs after posting 164/5 in their 20 overs. A win on Wednesday will secure the Men in Yellow a spot in the Super Eight stage with a game in hand.


Meanwhile, Namibia won their opening match against Oman in a Super Over after failing to reach a target of 110 on a tough track. However, they couldn't build on this win, suffering a defeat in their next game against Scotland. The European side chased down a 156-run target with five wickets and nine balls to spare.


Pitch Report and Conditions: The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium has hosted 14 T20Is so far. Nine games have been won by teams batting first, while only five have been won by chasing teams. The average first innings score is 138. Teams will have to make good use of the powerplay and score as many runs as possible early on. Scoring in the latter stages of the innings isn't easy as the ball gets softer and the pitch slows down.


Head-to-Head Record: This is the first T20I face-off between Australia and Namibia. They have met only once in international cricket, during the 2003 ODI World Cup, where Australia won by 256 runs in Potchefstroom.


Probable Playing XIs:

  • Australia (AUS):

  • David Warner

  • Travis Head

  • Mitchell Marsh (c)

  • Glenn Maxwell

  • Marcus Stoinis

  • Tim David

  • Matthew Wade (wk)

  • Mitchell Starc

  • Pat Cummins

  • Adam Zampa

  • Josh Hazlewood

  • Namibia (NAM):

  • JP Kotze

  • Niko Davin

  • Jan Frylinck

  • Gerhard Erasmus (C)

  • Malan Kruger

  • Zane Green (WK)

  • David Wiese

  • Ruben Trumpelmann

  • JJ Smit

  • Bernard Scholtz

  • Tangeni Lungameni


AUS vs NAM Probable Best Performers of the Match:

  • Probable Best Batter: Marcus Stoinis

  • Marcus Stoinis was in fine form during the Indian Premier League 2024 and is continuing his purple patch in the World Cup. In two games, he has scored 97 runs at an average of 97 and a strike rate of 183.02. With Glenn Maxwell struggling, Stoinis' form is a relief for Australian fans.

  • Probable Best Bowler: Mitchell Starc

  • Mitchell Starc won the Player of the Match award in his last two IPL 2024 games, helping Kolkata Knight Riders win the title. He had a good encounter against Oman, picking up two wickets in three overs. However, he went wicketless against England, conceding 37 runs. Starc can be lethal with the new ball against Namibian batters. If Namibia can keep him and Josh Hazlewood at bay in the powerplay, they will stand a better chance.


Prediction: Australia, with their superior experience and form, are strong favorites to win this match against Namibia. While Namibia has shown resilience, the Australian team is likely to dominate and secure a comfortable victory.
