New Zealand have their own destiny in their hands when they take on Namibia in their next 2021 T20 World Cup match. Nobody is really expecting the Kiwis to lose this game, which is made obvious from the cricket betting odds that are on offer. Namibia are not a bad side and do have some good players, but do they really have what it takes to turn over New Zealand at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium on the 5th of November? Read on to find out our T20 match prediction.

New Zealand Team Preview

The Kiwis were pushed by Scotland in their last match, and there would have been some nervous players and coaching staff in the dressing room at certain points of Scotland's run chase, that is for sure. The result eventually went their way, but we do not think that they would have been at all happy with the performance that they put in. However, New Zealand are a very good team and we are sure that they will get back to their best in this match.

When it comes to the Top Batsman bet for New Zealand, there are two players that we would be tempted to put our money on and these are Kane Williamson and Martin Guptill. The latter smashed 93 against the Scots and helped New Zealand get to a competitive total, while the former is too much of a great player to keep missing out on a big score.

With regard to bowling, Sharjah has been kind to the spinners so the likes of Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner will be crucial. Thus, we recommend that if you want to go ahead and bet on the Top Bowler for New Zealand that you put your money on one of Sodhi or Santner.

Namibia Team Preview

Namibia will be itching to pick up a huge scalp at the T20 World Cup to prove to the cricketing world that they deserve to be playing on such a big stage. New Zealand are a very good team, but Namibia will believe that they can put in a good enough performance to claim two points.

One of the interesting facts about this Namibia side is the number of left-arm pace bowlers that they have, all who manage to get a bit of swing when bowling with the new ball. The likes of Rubem Trumplemann, JJ Smit, and Jan Frylinck could pick up some wickets in the Powerplay. However, on the whole, the Namibia bowling attack is not that suited to the conditions that will be found at Sharjah, and we do not think that their batsmen will do well on it either.

Their batting has been pretty disappointing to say the least. David Wiese, Gerhard Erasmus, and Craig Williams have all managed to get starts in matches, but none of them have managed to go on to put up a big score. Thus, you can bet against their batsmen by looking at various markets like Total Fours, Total Sixes, and highest score.

Toss Prediction

The team that is lucky enough to win the toss will want to bat first. This is going to be a day game, and the wicket could get a lot slower and harder to bat on as the game progresses. The team that is fielding second will not have to worry about dew forming because it is a day match.

Pitch Conditions

The conditions at this venue have been the hardest for batsmen at this T20 World Cup. You should be able to make some good profit by betting against batsmen in this game because we think that the spinners will dominate once again. The par score on this wicket is about 140, so the team that bats first will look to hit around 160 to give themselves a really good chance to win.

Our Match Prediction

We would put our online cricket betting money on New Zealand to win, although you will not make much of a profit from the odds that are on offer. The whole of India will be wanting Namibia to pull off one of the biggest upsets in recent cricket, but we are not going to bet on that happening. This New Zealand team is full of class players, and should have more than enough talent to win this game.
