ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Match 11 – NAM vs IRE: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions22 Oct 2021 - 15:30 pm

NAM vs IRE Preview

A win is a Must

Namibia will take on Ireland in match 11 of the T20 World Cup. This is the team’s last match for the group stage. A win here for the team means a qualification for the super 12 while a loss means a team is out of the T20 World cup.

Namibia’s Historic Win

  • Namibia scripted a historic win in the last match against the Netherlands.
  • This was their first-ever win in the world cup.
  • It was the brilliance of their most experienced player David Wiese and a wonderful hand in the batting from captain Gerrad Erasmus that help Namibia win the match.

Ireland’s Poor day

  • Ireland started brilliantly in their last match against Sri Lanka. They put them under the pressure by picking up 3 wickets in the first 3 overs. Although they could not take the benefit of the start and let Sri Lanka get away.
  • Sri Lanka posted 171 on the board. For Ireland, the batters did not start well as they lost 3 wickets in the powerplay.
  • In the end, Ireland lost by 70 runs and will be looking to bounce back in their last match of round 1

Namibia runs total. Innings #1.Over #1 –  Under 4.5 – 2.36*

NAM vs IRE

Note: In the last match they scored 2 in the first over against the Netherlands which is not included in the graph.

The pressure of playing in a T20 world cup seems to have got to Namibia openers. They need to settle down their nerves in the first over. Even though they have scored above 5 runs in the first over in the last 5 matches, they have struggled against a stronger team. In this world cup in both the matches, they have scored only 2 runs in the first over. Further, they are facing a strong Irish Bowling attack.

We predict and bet on Namibia to score under 4.5 in their first over.

Match Prediction for NAM vs IRE

Nambia is high on confidence as they won their last match against a stronger Netherlands side. They have won only 1 out of their last 5 matches. Although they have experienced campaigners who can handle the pressure.

Ireland has won 3 out of their last 5 matches. They lost their last match against Sri Lanka in a poor manner. Their fast bowling is one of the positives in the tournament but the spinner Simmi Singh performance has been poor in the tournament. It can be a good option to give a chance to George Dockrell in place of Simmi Singh.

It is like a knockout game for both sides which will make this fixture, pretty interesting one. Ireland has the experience of playing in big tournaments under pressure. Even though Namibia defeated the Netherlands, it looks difficult for them to beat this Irish side.

We predict and bet on Ireland to win this fixture and qualify for Super 12.

Paul Stirling is one of the best batsmen Ireland cricket has ever produced in the white-ball format. He is vastly experienced and has also played in various franchise leagues. He has played 89 innings and scored more than 2500 runs in T20Is for Ireland at an average of 31.17. He has 19 half-centuries and 1 century to his name for Ireland in T20Is.

He was the second-highest scorer for Ireland in their first match of the tournament against the Netherlands. He might not have looked very convincing but he is too good a batsman to be silent for long.

He will step up to the occasion and we predict and bet on him to score over 22.5 for Ireland in this fixture.

Oman VS Scotland

ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Match 10 – OMA vs SCO: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions21 Oct 2021 - 19:30 pm

OMA vs SCO Preview

Oman will take on Scotland in Match number 10 of the T20 World Cup Group Stage. Scotland is almost through to the super 12 after winning 2 in 2. Although a loss in this match for them could mean it can come down to the net run rate. They have played brilliantly till now and will be looking to continue the momentum and end round 1 with a win. They had some hiccups in the last match against PNG and will be looking to improve on that.

It would not be wrong to say that fielding has led Oman down in the last match. They dropped 3 catches in the first 10 overs in the last match.  Their bowlers did a brilliant job and could have restricted Bangladesh to 15-20 runs less if their fielding would have been better. While in batting apart from the top 3, the middle order looks quite weak. If they are to win this do or die fixture, they need to step up their fielding and also the middle order needs to take the responsibility. This is a must-win game for them and if Bangladesh wins against PNG, they will also have to keep an eye on Net Run Rate to qualify for super 12.

Match Prediction for OMA vs SCO

Oman is in decent form. They have won 2 of their last 5 matches. While Scotland is in brilliant form. They have won 4 of their last 5 matches and are yet to lose in this edition of the tournament. The positive for Oman has been the fast bowling and the fast bowlers need to keep performing. For Scotland, the key players have performed when needed under pressure. This will be a cracker of a match for the race to the Super 12. We think Scotland have a little more experience and quality needed to win this fixture. We predict and bet on Scotland to win this highly-anticipated fixture

Oman is not comparatively a strong team in comparison to Scotland. But they have the advantage of the home ground and know the conditions well. Oman has scored more than 40 in 3 of their last 3 T20i matches. In the last against a strong Bangladesh side, they scored 47 at the same venue. Their openers also come out with attacking intent and are probably the top batters in this Oman lineup. We predict and bet on Oman to score over 41.5 in the powerplay.

ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Match 9 – BAN vs PNG: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions21 Oct 2021 - 15:30 pm

BAN vs PNG Preview

Bangladesh will take on Papua New Guinea in Match number 9 of the T20 World Cup Group Stage. Bangladesh is off the mark in the T20 World Cup after their win against Oman. Although the win was not as convincing as it was expected from the Tigers. They looked scratchy with both bat and bowl in the first few overs. It was the experienced duo of Shakib Al Hasan and Mustafizur Rahman that took bailed them out. Bangladesh needs a good win to qualify for the super 12.

PNG is out of the T20 World Cup but they have got the much-needed exposure and experience to take back from this tournament. It was their first outing in this tournament and the lack of experience was evident. Although they fought back brilliantly in the death with the bowl and in the middle and death overs with the bat against Scotland. There are positives to take from the previous 2 matches for them and they would look to build on them and push Bangladesh hard for victory.

Even in the two matches in the world cup, they scored 25 and 29 in the powerplay losing a couple of wickets. Liton Das seems to be in poor form while Naim played well but had some luck as well.

Mustafizur Rahman is one of the most experienced fast bowlers for Bangladesh in T20I. He has played more than 50 T20Is and taken 82 wickets at an average of just 18.12. In all T20s combining international and domestic cricket, he has taken over 200 wickets at an average of 19.82. He is also one of the few Bangladeshi players to have played in IPL. With him bowling in the powerplay and the conditions assisting the bowlers with a swing in the initial few overs he can be expected to be among the wickets. We predict and bet on him to take over 1.5 wickets in this fixture.

ICC T20 WorldCup 2021: Match 8 – SL vs IRE: Preview, Playing XI & Predictions20 Oct 2021 - 19:30 pm

SL vs IRE Preview

Sri Lanka will take on Ireland in match 8 of the T20 World Cup. The matches are coming thick and fast in round 1. Both teams started their T20 world cup campaign with a convincing win. A win for any of these teams will mean progress through to the Super 12, while a loss will mean they will have to win the last match of the group stage to qualify.

Sri Lanka beat Namibia convincingly by 7 wickets, while Ireland beat Netherlands by 7 wickets as well. Although Sri Lanka had a scare in the powerplay when they lost 3 wickets in the first 6 overs. They would be looking not to repeat a similar situation. For Ireland, it was Curtis Campher who was the star as he took 4 wickets in 4 balls to help Ireland beat Netherlands. He became the first bowler to do so in a T20 world cup and 3rd bowler to do it in T20Is after Lasith Malinga and Rashid Khan.

While in the last 3 matches played in Dubai they scored more than 40 only once. With the match being played in Abu Dhabi, there might be help for bowlers as well. Further, even in the last match against the Netherlands, they scored less than 40 in the powerplay.

Namibia will take on the Netherlands in match 7 of the T20 World Cup. It is a do or die encounter for both teams. A loss here means they would be out of the T20 World cup, while a win here will keep the hopes alive for the teams. Both the teams started with a loss in their opening encounter. Namibia faced defeat from Sri Lanka while the Netherlands got defeated by Ireland.

It is batting which is a major concern for both teams. Namibia got bowled out for 96 against Sri Lanka while the Netherlands got bundled out for 106 in their 20 overs against Ireland. The Netherlands lost 4 wickets in 4 balls which was the major cause of the defeat for them. Both teams will give their all in order to survive in this competition.

Even though they are against tougher opponents, we can expect them to start with attacking intent. With the surface being good in the initial few overs there can be runs expected in the powerplay. We predict and bet on Namibia to score over 43.5 runs in the powerplay. Further, there can be a safer option to bet on Namibia scoring over 33.5 in the powerplay.

OMA vs BAN Preview

Oman will take on Bangladesh in Match number 6 of the T20 World Cup Group Stage. Oman is off to a flyer as they beat PNG by 10 wickets in their opening encounter. Although there were some points that Oman need to take into consideration if they are to put up a strong fight against Bangladesh. They were sloppy in the field and had given away some easy runs. While even in bowling they need to bowl with more discipline against strong opponents.

Bangladesh surprisingly lost their first match against Scotland.  A loss which many won’t have seen it coming. They were expected to cruise through round 1. But now a loss would have hit their confidence. They were lacking intent in the batting. Further, they also allowed Scotland to go from 53/6 to 140. Bangladesh played more dot balls and hit fewer boundaries than Scotland which cost them the game. The senior players of Bangladesh need to step up if they are to win this encounter.

Scotland will take on Papua New Guinea in Match number 5 of the T20 World Cup Group Stage. Scotland will be high on confidence as they beat Bangladesh in their first encounter of the T20 World Cup. From 53/6 they managed to win by 6 runs against Bangladesh. This shows the self-belief they possess. A win here for Scotland will almost guarantee their place in the Super 12 of the T20 world cup.

It is the first major ICC tournament for PNG and that was seen in their first match of the tournament against the home side Oman. Apart from two batters Asad Vala and Charles Amini no one got going. It would not be wrong to say there would have been nerves for PNG players at the big stage. While even the bowling did not look up to the mark.  PNG will be looking to learn from their mistakes and put on a strong fight against the Scottish.

Sri Lanka will take on Namibia in Match number 4 of the T20 World Cup. Sri Lanka is going through some tough times. They are an inexperienced squad but the favourites and one of the strongest teams in the Group Stage of the T20 World Cup. They would have expected themselves to not go through this group stage and have a direct entry in the Super 12. But now they would be expecting a dominant performance in this group stage and qualify for the Super 12.

Namibia made history after qualifying for the T20 World Cup and being here at the biggest of the stages will mean a lot to this cricketing nation. They are new to this stage and are up against the mighty Sri Lankans. Namibia would be expecting to put a strong performance in this fixture. They also have got the experienced player like David Wiese in the squad who had previously played for South Africa.

Match Prediction for SL vs NAM

Sri Lanka won both of their warm-up matches, while Namibia has won 2 of their last 5 matches. Sri Lanka also has 2 players coming back from the IPL which makes them more strong against Namibia. Namibia has qualified for the T20 world cup but it looks like an uphill task for them to beat Sri Lanka. We do not think there would be an upset in this fixture. We predict and bet on  Sri Lanka to win this fixture comfortably.

SL vs NAM Value Bet – Parimatch

Namibia first 6 overs total. Innings #1 Over 39.5 – 1.85*

SL vs NAM

Namibia seems to play fearless cricket in the powerplay. In 3 of their last 5 matches, they have scored 50 or more in the powerplay. Even though they are against tougher opponents, we can expect them to start with attacking intent. With the surface being good in the initial few overs there can be runs expected in the powerplay. We predict and bet on Namibia to score over 39.5 runs in the powerplay. Further, there can be a safer option to bet on Namibia scoring over 34.5 in the powerplay.

* If you win this value bet – 1000 gives 1850.
