IND vs NAM Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Injury Updates For Match 42 of T20 World Cup 2021

David Wiese is an X-factor for Namibia.


India will take on Namibia in the final league match of the T20 World Cup 2021 on Monday. India will be closely watching the New Zealand vs Afghanistan game. If New Zealand beats the Afghan, India will be definitely out of the tournament. The Men in Blue went on to beat Scotland in their previous game by a massive margin by 8 wickets, with 81 balls still left in the match. Their net run rate has gradually increased, which is a bonus for them.

Namibia has shown a lot of character and potential in this World Cup. They are the team to watch out for in the future. Their cricketing structure has improved a lot in recent times. Namibia gave a nightmare for the New Zealand batters in the last game, but the batters failed to score runs. As a result, they encountered their third loss in the Super 12 stages.
