Namibia vs New Zealand Betting Tips 05/11/2021

Teams Status

New Zealand

The second spot from Group 2 behind Pakistan is currently occupied by New Zealand, and they’d keep hold of it if they do not suffer any upsets in their remaining two matches, the first of which is against Namibia.

The Kiwis, through their first three matches, have done reasonably well, apart from the loss to Pakistan, although even that was a close match until Asif Ali happened.

They crushed India and then were given a small bit of scare by Scotland towards the end of their clash but Kane Williamson’s men kept things professional and won by 16 runs, which is not a lot when you consider the size of their opposition but a win is a win.

Namibia are not a side very dissimilar to Scotland in terms of composition. Thus, New Zealand will have to be careful of not letting the Africans come even as close to getting a result as the Scots did.


Namibia have so far exceeded expectations and played far better than people expected them to. Making it this far and even notching a win in the main round over the far more experienced Scotland must be counted as an achievement.

Even in their defeats, they’ve had their positives. Like in the last game to Pakistan, their pace bowlers had impressed early on and restricted Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan to score freely.

Then, during the run chase, a total of 144-5 in pursuit of 190 wasn’t a bad effort considering they were up against a world-class bowling unit. That said, can they punch way above their weight and threaten to cause an upset here? That’s very unlikely.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Daryl Mitchell total runs over 22.5 @ 1.87

Daryl Mitchell, New Zealand’s newfound opener, scored 27 and 49 against difficult opponents Pakistan and India respectively but managed just 13 in the easy outing against Scotland. He must be kicking himself for the missed opportunity and would want to not have two straight duds in two easy matches on his record. A total of 23 or more is all we want from him. The odds have been sourced from Dafabet.

Tip: Gerhard Erasmus to score more than 15.5 runs @ 1.87

There is a pretty decent player hidden inside Namibian captain Gerhard Erasmus. You don’t need to be an expert to tell that. His T20I average is an impressive 32.90 and although his form in the main round of the World Cup has deserted him, he was in pretty good touch in round 1. We expect him to find some runs before the campaign is over. It could be here. The odds have been sourced from Dafabet.


This is a mismatch and the result should reflect that, barring an upset of course.
