Namibia vs Netherlands Head-to-Head
I now turn my Namibia vs Netherlands predictions to analysing the head-to-head comparison of the two sides. The teams have met in two previous T20I games, tying the sides 1-1 in their h2h record.
Namibia vs Netherlands Last Meeting
Namibia and Netherlands last met in Abu Dhabi on 20 October 2021. It was the seventh match in a first-round group A encounter of the ICC men’s T-20 World Cup.
Namibia won the toss and put the Netherlands in. The Netherlands got off to a steady start before opener Stephan Myburgh got out in the sixth over, with the scorecard reading one for 42. After the Netherlands lost their second wicket two overs later, Colin Ackermann joined Max O’Dowd at the wicket. The pair got together in an 82-run partnership for the third wicket.
After Ackermann was out, the Netherlands added 27 runs in the last 14 deliveries. They ended up with a competitive score of 164 for 4. O’Dowd was Netherlands’ top scorer with 70 runs from 56 balls. For Namibia, Jan Frylinck, who took 2 for 36, was the most successful bowler.
Namibia began their chase badly, losing three wickets for 52 by the ninth over. However, they were rescued by a brilliant partnership of 93 between skipper Gerard Erasmus and David Wiese. When Erasmus got out in the 17th over, the scorecard read 145 for four.
Namibia scored the remaining 21 runs needed with an over to spare and without further loss of wickets. Wiese, who remained unbeaten on 66 from 40 balls, was Namibia’s top scorer. He was named man of the match.
Namibia vs Netherlands: Players to Look Out for
In this segment of my Namibia vs Netherlands tips, I consider which players are likely to do well in the upcoming match. Opener Max O’Dowd is key to Netherlands’ ability to register a big score. All-rounder Bas de Leede is another player who could steer the game away from Namibia. New ball bowler Fred Klaasen could also prove crucial to Netherlands’ plans to restrict the Namibia batters.
For Namibia, skipper Erasmus is the batter around whom their innings will get built. David Wiese will use his all-round talents to try and deliver the knockout punch against the Netherlands. Jan Frylinck is another Namibia player whose all-round skills could have a telling effect.
Namibia vs Netherlands: Toss Prediction
In the last match between the sides, the coin fell in Namibia’s favour. This time around, I predict that the Netherlands will win the toss.

I now direct my World Cup betting tips 2022 to predicting who will take the most wickets in the game. I foresee that Namibia all-rounder Jan Frylinck will emerge as the most successful bowler in the upcoming game.
