Namibia captain Gerhard Erasmus has won the toss and elected to field in the ICC Men’s Group 2 match against Scotland t20 world cup at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium here on Wednesday.
After winning the toss, Erasmus stated that his team remained unchanged from their win against Ireland in the final Round 1 match. “The dew plays a big role and we have a strong bowling attack, so we are hopeful that we can perform. It was an emotional group phase, and after that we had to regroup. (David) Wiese is a great artist, but 10 others are raring to leave today. There is a lot of potential in this and we want to highlight them as well. We often play with each other, so we get to know them.”
Scotland have a stand-in captain in Richie Berrington as Kyle Coetzer is out of the playing XI with a finger injury. Berrington said that Craig Wallace filled in the eleven for Coetzer. “We are now taking Afghanistan (match) aside, and we are happy with the cricket we are playing. It doesn’t throw us away, and we’re ready to get back on track. Namibia is a strong side, but we are ready and ready to go.”
