ND-W vs NAM-W Dream11 : Both Netherlands and Namibia scour for their elusive win as either side looks to wrap up their outing in the qualifiers with a win in their kitty
For both Netherlands and Namibia, the brunt of Ireland and Thailand has been too much to handle. Paired up with way too superior opponents, Netherlands and Namibia have been completely dominated in the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier, being trounced to the two straight defeats apiece.
Floundering in the bottom two positions, for both these sides, the tournament had ended a long time before today’s impending clash. With a place in the annuls improbable for them, all today’s clash can do is provide such needed solace and help resume semblance for these two sides who’ll be looking to continue with their rigorous efforts of making strides in the women’s cricketing fraternity.
For Namibia particularly, the batting order has made for horrid viewing. It was epitomised in their previous clash against Thailand, a fixture which saw them being dismissed for just 61 as they traversed in pursuit on the 99 runs put up by their opponents. A chastening 46 run defeat left them with the worst net run-rate, an ordeal the side will need to work on as they look to justify their place in the tournament.
Elsewhere, Netherlands faltered in a run chase as well, failing to chase down the 121 run target Ireland set infront from them. A failure to string together meaningful partnerships let the side failing to dominate the chase at any point, seeing them stumble by 19 runs at the end of the day and see their aspirations of finishing in the top 2 of this tournament be curtailed.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
A tricky surface to bat on given the incessant rainfall lashing the surface plus the more than adequate cover of grass persisted with, this surface should be a treacherous one for the batters to come out and ply their skill set on. With rain an eventuality in this clash with the afternoon clashes being affected due to inclement weather, the side winning the toss will be looking to field first and get a coherent idea of what to chase.

ND-W vs NAM-W Dream11
Picking out a winner from this clash was an extremely easy proposition for this one. While Namibia have done extremely well to emerge as the most promising side from the African region, the disparity between them and their counterparts has been clearly exposed in this series with the side’s batting unit failing to put on the requisite fight needed.
Netherlands’ bowling setup should clean them out today and see the side cruise to a clinical win in this one.

Her fellow opener Heather Siegers accompanies her with her not only opening the bowling but the bowling as well for her side.
Akin to her is Namibia’s Sune Wittmann, bearing with her the pinch perfect identity of an all-rounder, someone likely to bring in a rich bagful of points for us from this clash.

One thing which is a certainty in this encounter is the script that wickets around going to pour down today. Both the sides have units which can unravel easily, wavering under immense pressure and prone to horrific collapses.
While Namibia have been in harrowing form with the bat, the bowling unit has helped keep the side in matches, trying to paper over the cracks of their dismal batting displays. Her performance of 3-8 against Thailand was one of the finest spells sent down in the tournament till now seeing us make Namibia’s Sylvia Shihepo the first bowler to come in from the side.
Another component of the trivalent we have indulged from the side for this clash is the duo of Irene van Zyl Wilka Mwatile while our lone pick from the opposition is of Caroline de Lange who registered two wickets in her previous outing.
