NAM vs SCOT T20 World Cup Live Score: Namibia, Scotland aim for a win with an eye on Super 8 – The Times of India


Namibia vs Scotland T20 World Cup Live Score: Scotland had their opening match against defending champions England abandoned due to rain at the Kensington Oval and wins over Namibia and Oman along with not losing to Australia by a big margin will give them a good chance of qualifying for the Super Eight stage.

Namibia won their T20 World Cup opening game against Oman after a thrilling Super Over and have a 3-0 record over Scotland in T20Is since 2019, which makes them a stern opposition for the Richie Berrington-led side.

Both sides went unbeaten through their regional qualifiers to get here, seeing off a full member each on the way. Both are unbeaten still, and whichever takes two points back from the Kensington Oval will find themselves perhaps just one good win away from making the Super 8s, and with it direct qualification to the next edition of the tournament in 2026.

Scotland batter George Munsey’s sole first class century and sole ODI ton both came against Namibia, but in T20Is he averages just 9.33 against them in three innings.

Despite holding the upper hand in the fifty-over format in recent years, Scotland have never beaten Namibia in 20-over competition, Namibia coming out on top in all three of their matches till date.
