Match Preview

NAM vs UAE: Namibia will face off United Arab Emirates in the 10th match of the qualifiers stage of the ICC Mens T20 World Cup 2022. The fixture will be played on 20th October 2022 at Simonds Stadium in Geelong. 

Namibia shocked the world after producing the biggest upset of the tournament right in the opening game. They were facing the Asian Champions, Sri Lanka. They did a fair job with the bat and posted a total of 163. However, the tables turned in the second innings. The star-stubbed, experienced Sri Lankan batting lineup collapsed completely. Sri Lanka was bundled for a total of 108, and Namibia won the game by 55 runs. However, Namibia lost the following game against the Netherlands. 

The United Arab Emirates, on the other hand, is on the verge of getting knocked out at the qualifiers stage. They have lost both the games played as of now. They faced Sri Lanka in the previous game and failed to show up with the bat. UAE fell short of a massive 79 runs.
