T20 World Cup 2021: Pakistan vs Namibia Probable XI

Topic: T20 World Cup 2021

Pakistan to face Namibia on the 31st Match of the T20 World Cup 2021 at 8 pm Bangladeshi Time Tonight.

Pakistan played games against India, New Zealand, and Afghanistan to start the tournament with temporary head coaches and batting and bowling experts with little consulting experience. There was a lot of dark comedy about Pakistan being eliminated by the end of these games, but it was almost too real to be funny.

With a near-certainty of reaching the World Cup semi-finals, Pakistan can regard the upcoming games against Namibia and Scotland practically as extra warm-up matches, a luxury no Pakistan team would think of enjoying at this point of the tournament. 

Namibia, on the other hand, isn't there to be anyone's sidekick. Gerhard Erasmus' team is still in the competition and in contention for the semi-finals after playing an eye-catching style of T20 cricket that has seen them reach farther this tournament than most would have thought. Everyone's attention, though, will be focused on Pakistan, who has emerged as a mid-tournament favourite. Namibia, on the other hand, has a chance, and that is all they can ask for for the time being.

Pitch conditions

It is predicted to be warm in the evening, with the potential of dew.
