SUPER 12, Match 27, AFG vs NAM: Preview, Match Details, Pitch Report, Probable XIs, Match Prediction and Fantasy Picks



After a heartbreaking defeat from the hands of Pakistan, Afghanistan is definitely going to bounce back and what better way than competing with Namibia? However, even though it's an associate nation, you definitely can't take them lightly. They have played some good cricket till now and defeated Scotland in their last match. If they manage to beat Afghanistan, a much stronger side, they will have four points and the equation will completely change in a group that was seemed to be less complicated.

The strength of Afghanistan has got to be their spin attack. Rashid Khan, Mohammed Nabi and Mujeeb Ur Rahman have been absolutely fantastic. Only if their pacers would have stepped up, they could have been a much more dangerous side! Who knows, they could have even defeated Pakistan in their last fixture and that would have given them a huge advantage going forward. Against Namibia, their batters will have a chance to get back in touch. Some of them looked rusty even though they played quite a few matches recently. The best part about the nation is they are still doing their job silently and getting the support of a lot of general cricket fans. Their story is no short of a story of courage or a story of pride. What they are doing and achieving in this hard time is very much commendable.

Namibia on the other hand will be looking to get a double up and start dreaming. Beating a registered team of the Cricket council will give them a lot of hope and in a way their cricket will get better. The South African born David Weise has been absolutely the best in whatever he's doing. He has changed the game for Namibia. Their captain Gerhard Erasmus has also played some good cricket in the tournament. Beating Afghanistan in Abu Dhabi is not at all easy. If their bowlers can pull something off, it will be a historic achievement for the nation.
