NAMIBIA’s Cricket team’s preparations ahead of the T20 World Cup qualifier kicked off on a positive note after winning with a noticeable eight-wicket victory over Nigeria in a friendly match in Dubai this week.
That win took them into 15th position from 28th place in the ICC ODI ranking, according to the latest ranking that were released yesterday by Cricket Namibia.
Last week, the team beat Papa New Guinea and UAE with Craig Williams at the forefront and pulling off a stunning performance in both matches. Namibia won 208 for three wickets in the Papa New Guinea match and beat UAE by 10 wickets after a brilliant bowling spell by Jan Frylinck.
The T20 World Cup qualifier games get underway this Friday with Namibia taking on Northlands in their first match on Saturday.
