OMN Vs NAM Dream11 Team Probable Playing 11, Toss, Pitch And Match Report: Cliff-hanger of a match set to be dished our way when two staunch sides go at loggerheads.
They failed to win their opening encounter of the ongoing series but Namibia will be hardly deterred by their display yesterday. The side saw a win slip from their grasps by the bares of margins, a result they’ll be looking to overturn when they come out to ply ther skill set once again today.
What will perturb them though is the identity of the opposition that defeat came against and in particular their wayward bowling display. They ended up conceding way too many runs to all short by 8 runs in pursuit of the 223 run target laid out infront of them.
The defeat was their second in five matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup League 2, one which saw the remain in fourth place in the points tally. However with just the two points separating them and Oman, Namibia will be looking to displace their opponents of the day with an imperious display which exudes their pulsating brand of cricket.
Elsewhere, their opponents registered a 5 wicket win in series opener as they chased down 171 with 12 overs in hand. With both the sides being levelly balanced, we are set o be immersed in a ripper of a tie, one where either side will be looking to punch above their weight.
By far the best encounter of this series, today’s clash promises to be an edge of the seat thriller. Extremely few margins will come into play on the day with either side having nothing to give away.
What just about favours Namibia is the repertoire of batsmen in their squad with the team bating extremely deep to see the side preserve on a tricky wicket.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
All across the life on this track, we have had to endure sore batting conditions and this series has played out the same narrative. Nothing will change today either with the ball stay low and gripping on the surface with the side winning the toss opting to chase with a clear idea of how to subject themselves to their run chase.

OMN Vs NAM Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
With 27 runs yesterday, JP Kotze from Namibia is going to be our side’s pick in the wicket-keeping docket. He’s not going to be keeping wickets for the side but he’s more than an astute bat, someone we see coming up with a slew of runs for his side today as well.
OMN Vs NAM Dream11 Batsmen
He’s going to be paired up with his side’s captain with Gerhard Erasmus top scoring for his side yesterday. The 56 runs he came up with saw him stamp his authority, a performance which saw him wage a lone of battle at a precarious time for the side when wickets were tumbling at regular intervals at the other end.
Elsewhere, from the opposition we’ll be beginning with Jatinder Singh after the opener came up with a piquant 62 run knock in the side’s series opener. And a reason he was allowed to come out and express himself freely was owing to Aqib Ilyas who scored 80 runs in that same encounter to see the two put on a 112 run stand for the second wicket and take their side past the finishing.
OMN Vs NAM Dream11 All-Rounders
After sending down the 4-15 for the ball, Zeeshan Maqsood was always going to be an instant pick for us on the day. The all-rounder was lethal with the ball seeing his wicket to wicket line and length induce false shots and soft dismissals.
With 31 runs and the one wicket to go with them yesterday, Jan Frylinck becomes the first name to grace our side from Namibia for the forthcoming outing. The player came up with a pinch perfect bowling display the last time around, contributing in both the facets of the game to see his side stay alive in their run chase till the culminating stages.
With 18 runs and the 1 wicket to go with them, Craig Williams will be partnering him up with Frylinck for the contest.
