Australia vs Namibia Match Prediction

AUS vs NAM Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Australia will take on Namibia in the 24th game of the T20 World Cup 2024. The game will be played at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua and will start at 6:00 AM IST on June 12

Australia have played two matches and registered comprehensive wins. The team would eye a hat-trick of wins when they play Namibia and the victory would seal the Super 8 berth for the Mitchell Marsh-led side.  Australia have played the best cricket among all teams so far and justified the favourites tag. They are the only team to post a score of 200+ runs in the T20 World Cup 2024. Also, the bowlers have done remarkably well to defend scores. 

Meanwhile, Namibia defeated Oman but lost to Scotland. They have two games left against Australia and England and the only way they can qualify for the next round is by winning both games. This is a mammoth ask for the Namibian side.

Australia Team News & Playing 11

AUS Team News

Australia will play the same team. They brought Pat Cummins in the playing XI for the previous game and that was the only change we expected. The Aussies are a full strength unit and should not make any change now.

AUS Key Players

  • David Warner – David Warner has played well in the T20 World Cup so far. Warner batted well for his 39 run innings in 16 balls against England before being dismissed. Warner threw away his wicket against England but he will have to ensure he plays a big innings when gets to a start.
  • Marcus Stoinis –  Marcus Stoinis also batted well for his 30 in 17 balls against England on a tough batting surface. His runs were crucial as England got close to Australia’s target.  Stoinis has shown good form in recent times and he will be a key player for Australia. The conditions will also suit his bowling, making him even more valuable.
  • Pat Cummins – Pat Cummins bowled a spell of 2-23 against England and turned the game in favour of Australia. He is a very clever bowler. The way he sets up batters and gets crucial wickets in crunch moments makes him one of the best pacers in the world.
  • Adam Zampa – Adam Zampa will be a massive player for Australia throughout this World Cup.  He picked two wickets for 28 runs against England. The conditions are helpful for spinners thus his four overs are vital for Australia.

AUS Team Form

Australia have picked two comprehensive wins in as many games this World Cup. The team will be happy as most of their players have contributed to the wins.

Namibia Team News & Playing 11

NAM Team News

This is a must win game for Namibia as a defeat will almost knock them out of the Super 8s race. Namibia should play the same team that featured in the game against Scotland. Despite losing the previous match, this looks the best combination for Namibia.

NAM Key Players

  • Gerald Erasmus – Gerald Erasmus is a player who has been very consistent for Namibia. He played a brilliant hand of 52 against Scotland but that was not enough to take the team to a win. Erasmus is also a very handy bowler and bagged four wickets in two games.
  • Jan Frylinck – He is also a decent batter and played a match winning innings of 45 against Oman to help the team pick a close win. He has been trusted to bat in the top order and if he can somehow manage to stand up to the fearsome Aussie bowling, it will do wonders for him as Australia.
  • David Weise – Veteran David Weise is the most valuable player in the Namibia side given his experience and all round skills. He won the man of the match award after picking three wickets against Oman. He had a poor game against Scotland and thus would be keen to bounce back.
  • Bernard Scholtz – Spinners on these wickets are vital and left arm spinners are even more difficult to play. Scholtz has bowled well and bagged a wicket for 20 runs against Scotland.

NAM Team Form

Namibia defeated Oman in the first game but lost to Scotland. So far, the batting has let the team down and if the team has to compete against Australia, the batters have to come good.     

Namibia Predicted Playing 11

Nikolaas Davin, JP Kotze, Jan Frylinck, Gerhard Erasmus (c), Malan Kruger, JJ Smit, David Wiese, Zane Green (wk), Ruben Trumpelmann, Bernard Scholtz, Tangeni Lungameni

Australia vs Namibia Betting Odds

Australia are favourites to win. There is a huge difference between teams in terms of quality and Aussies by far are a better side.

Who will win the Australia vs Namibia Match?

Australia will start the match as big favourites. Beating Australia will be very tough for Namibia given the quality Australia have. Upsets are not rare in T20Is and Namibia can be optimistic but Australia have too much depth in team and even if they are in trouble at some point, they can bounce back to win the game.

🏆 Australia vs Namibia Prediction

Australia should win the game without much difficulty. They have a quality team at disposal and Namibia don’t seem to have players who can put Australia under pressure for entire 40 overs. Some or the other player will stand up and take Australia home even if Namibia put Australia in trouble at some point. For us, Australia are clear favourites.
