Namibia will take on Scotland in a critical Group B encounter at the Kensington Oval, with the match scheduled for June 7 (India time).

Both sides could discern promising indicators from their previous matches, albeit through differing circumstances. Namibia narrowly edged past Oman with the assistance of a Super Over, underscoring their resilience. Conversely, Scotland, despite putting up a formidable 90 for no loss by the halfway mark, were unable to commence the latter half of their game against England due to inclement weather in an already rain-curtailed game, resulting in them having to share the spoils. 

Namibia hold the advantage over Scotland in terms of their record facing each other, with their previous T20I meeting being at the T20 World Cup 2021, where they beat the Scottish side by four wickets.

Pitch Report and Conditions

Three matches of this edition’s marquee event have been played at the Kensington Oval thus far, with batting proving somewhat challenging for three of the four teams in the first and third games. The Scots, however, found it relatively easier, although their game was played under overcast skies.

Encouragingly, the weather conditions in Barbados appear markedly improved compared to the initial week of the tournament. There’s only a minor probability of precipitation expected each day leading up to Sunday.

Probable Best Performers

Probable Best Batter: George Munsey

Coming on the back of a crisp 31-ball 41*-run knock against England, the reverse-sweeping demon of the Associate world, would be high on confidence. He would also want to continue his bout of good form, especially after notching up five 30-plus scores in his last 10 T20I innings since March.

Probable Best Bowler: Ruben Trumpelmann

The left-arm speedster is coming off a career-best performance against Oman in his side’s opener in the T20 World Cup 2024. He would be wanting to emulate a similar performance against the Scottish and strike early with the new ball to give his side the upper hand, be it in any innings of the match.
