T20 World Cup 2021, Scotland vs Namibia LIVE Score Updates: Debutants Namibia will look to continue their fairytale run when they take on a bruised Scotland in the ICC T20 World Cup on Wednesday. Having earned its right to rub shoulders with the cricketing elites, Namibia will now be keen to test their skills against the best in business and a win over Scotland will do them a world of good before they take on the likes of Afghanistan, India, Pakistan and New Zealand in group 2. Scotland, on the other hand, were flying high with three successive wins in the first round before they were bought to earth by Afghanistan with an embarrassing 130-run defeat.

Richie Berrington: “Kyle Coetzer is nursing a finger injury so I’m standing in as his deputy today. Craig Wallace comes in for him. We are putting the Afghanistan game to one side now, and we are happy with the cricket we are playing at the moment. It doesn’t throw us off, and we are ready to get back on track. Namibia are a strong side, and it’ll be a good game, but we are ready and raring to go.”

Scotland Playing XI: George Munsey, Matthew Cross(w), Calum MacLeod, Richie Berrington(c), Craig Wallace, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Safyaan Sharif, Bradley Wheal

Gerhard Erasmus: ‘We’re having a bowl. The dew plays a big role and we have a strong bowling attack, so we hope we can perform. It was an emotional group stage, and we have to regroup after that. Wiese is a great performer, but 10 other guys are raring to go today. There’s a lot of potential and we want to unleash them as well. We play each other often, so we know them quite well. We are going in with the same side, no changes.’

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the T20 World Cup clash between Scotland and debutants Namibia. You will find the live score card and other highlights of the match right here from toss to the last ball. Stay tuned for live updates.

Namibia have produced some solid batting display as they scripted two successive chases in the last two matches. It was the duo of skipper Erasmus and all-rounder David Wiese, who scored bulk of the runs as Namibia overhauled targets of 164 and 125 with plenty of balls to spare in the last two games. Wiese has also starred with the ball, taking three wickets with his medium pace, while left-arm pacer Jan Frylinck too dished out superlative performance snapping five wickets to keep their opponents to modest scores. For Scotland, batting trio of Richie Berrington, George Munsey and Matthew Cross have produced the goods in the qualifying matches but their batting line-up looked clueless against Afghanistan spinners and they will hope to give a better account of themselves on Wednesday. Among bowlers, Josh Davey has been the most successful with nine wickets so far from four matches, while Safyaan Sharif, Mark Watt and Brad Wheal too have contributed and the team will look up to them to keep the opposition in check.
