Namibia vs England Prediction & Tips

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

Namibia and England go head to head in Match 34 of the 2024 T20 World Cup. This is the final group stage game for both sides and Namibia are unable to finish in the top two. England must win this game and hope that Scotland lose to Australia in order to progress. Read on as we preview this game which gets underway at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium, North Sound, Antigua on Saturday 15th June at 13:00 local time.

Namibia were well beaten by nine wickets with 86 balls remaining against Australia in their last match and their confidence will have taken quite a hit. Facing a very strong bowling attack, they could have similar problems in this match.

England came into their last game against Oman with a tough task ahead of them to overturn a large net-run-rate deficit with Scotland. However, after their huge win in that match, they are now in a much stronger position and we expect another dominant performance in this fixture.

NAM vs ENG Pitch Report

In Thursday’s game at this venue we saw pace for the quick bowlers as well as plenty of turn for the spinners. England also showed that you can score quick runs on the pitch at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium and we expect a par score to be approaching 175.

Antigua Weather Report

There will be plenty of cloud cover in Antigua throughout this game and humidity levels are expected to be over 70% from start to finish. There is a 20% chance of rain.

Namibia Team News & Playing 11

NAM Team News

After beginning the tournament with a victory courtesy of a Super Over against Oman, Namibia have been well beaten by Scotland and Austria. However, they will still want to give a good account of themselves against England so we predict they will select their strongest side.

NAM Key Players

  • Michael van Lingen – The opener was one of only two batters to make double-figures for Namibia against Australia. He has a top score of 67 in T20Is.
  • Gerhard Erasmus – The captain hit four fours and a six against Australia’s strong bowling attack. That will give him confidence to attack the English bowlers in this game.
  • David Wiese – The former South African bowling all-rounder got the wicket of David Warner in the last game and he will look for more big name scalps in this match.
  • Ruben Trumpelmann – The left-arm quick bowler went wicketless against Australia but took 4/21 against Oman and took another wicket against Scotland.

NAM Team Form

Namibia come into this game hoping to avoid their third successive T20I defeat.

England Team News & Playing 11

ENG Team News

There was one change for England ahead of their victory over Oman with Reece Topley selected in favour of Chris Jordan. Although Topley went wicketless on Thursday, he bowled very well and we do not expect to see any changes to the XI ahead of this match.

ENG Key Players

  • Jos Buttler – The captain hit 22 runs from the third over against Oman which meant England needed only two runs to win the match! He will look to play in the same manner against Namibia.
  • Phil Salt – The opener always plays attacking cricket and his role in the side is to get them off to a flying start. He hit his first two balls for six on Thursday.
  • Adil Rashid – The vastly experienced spin bowler is never afraid to give the ball plenty of flight and to take the pace off. He has now taken a four-wicket haul on three occasions in T20Is.
  • Jofra Archer – The right-arm pace bowler produced a maiden over in Thursday’s game before returning exceptional figures of 3/12 from 3.2 overs.

ENG Team Form

England’s big victory over Oman on Thursday means that England have won two of their last three completed T20Is.

England Predicted Playing 11

Jos Buttler (wk) (c), Phil Salt, Will Jacks, Jonny Bairstow, Harry Brook, Moeen Ali, Liam Livingstone, Jofra Archer, Adil Rashid, Mark Wood, Reece Topley
