Read the complete match prediction for Namibia vs Scotland warm-up which will be played at ICC Academy Ground No 2, Dubai from 11:30 AM. Both teams are equally competitive if we talk about T20 Cricket. The teams would look to start this warm-up match in a positive manner.
Scotland especially has batsmen and bowlers who are slightly more experienced compared to the Namibia team. Scotland’s players might enjoy the conditions of Dubai very well and look to outclass Namibia in all departments.
Namibia Team Preview
Craig Williams and Captain Gerhard Erasmus make the batting lineup of Namibia somewhat strong at the top. If these two batsmen can perform as per their potential then it can be hard to stop them and they can put a big total on the board. JJ Smit can be handy with both bat and ball. With 59 being his highest total in the T20s, he can play a superb inning with the bat when needed.
Ben Shikongo and Bernard Scholtz are the top bowlers in the Namibia Team who can use the conditions very well and are capable of bowling fine spells under pressure also. These two bowlers will hold the key for Namibia’s bowling attack in this warm-up game against Scotland.
Scotland Team Preview
We hope to get big innings from Captain Kyle Coetzer in this Warm-up match against Namibia. He can really make a much difference with his batting display and can tackle any kind of world-class bowling attack. George Munsey clearly a big name in the Scotland Team at the top order.
Scotland also has some powerful batsmen in their middle order. Wicketkeeper Matthew Cross and Calum MacLeod are underrated most of the time but they can make it hard for any bowling attack to ball against them. They need to improve their performance to provide a lot of stability to the Scotland Team.
Bowlers like Safyaan Sharif and Mark Watt can be very effective for Scotland in this warm-up match against Namibia. These two are more than decent bowlers and have a great chance to prove their worth.

Matthew Cross(8.5) has exceptional batting skills and he can be handy with the bat and behind the wickets. Choosing Matthew Cross as a wicket-keeper will definitely get some more points in any Dream11 team.
Kyle Coetzer(9) has a great sytle of batting and can play beautifully on any wicket. George Munsey(9.5) is a great timer of the ball especially in T20 Cricket and he is our vice-captain for the Dream11 team. Stephen Baard(9) and Craig Williams(9.5) provides a great advantage to any team with their batting abilities.

Josh Davey(8.5), Mark Watt(8.5), Ruben Trumpelmann(8.5) have big roles to play with their bowling. They can take quick wickets and at the same time won’t let the runs flow easily. So these three are the top choices for the bowlers in our Dream11 Team.
