Two nations meet on 27th October as Scotland play Namibia after a horrific defeat against Afghanistan. It will be Namibia's first Super 12 match and they would want to keep the momentum rising after their thumping conquest against Ireland.

Scotland were all out for 60 in their previous match against Afghanistan and another loss would mean that they are out of the tournament. Namibia's performance against Ireland was a promising one and viewers would be excited to see how this side performs. What do you think? Will Scotland fight back or will Namibia prevail again?

Team News

Both teams would want to put their best foot forward and we may see the teams fielding the same XI as they did in their last match. However, Scotland's loss does raise questions and doubts about where some changes would be considered.

Probable Playing XI 

Scotland (SCO): George Munsey, Kyle Coetzer (c), Matthew Cross (wk), Richie Berrington, Calum MacLeod, Michael Leask, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Josh Davey, Bradley Wheal, Alasdair Evans

Namibia (NAM): Craig Williams, Zane Green (WK), Gerhard Erasmus ©, David Wiese, Michael Van Linjen, JJ Smit, Jan Frylinck, Pikky ya France, Bernard Scholtz, Ruben Trumpelmann, Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton.

Must Picks

David Wiese and Richie Berrington will be the heart and soul of their respective sides. Both have a say in both departments and their form would be huge considering the game's dynamic.

Gerhard Erasmus and Kyle Coetzer will be important picks too as the skippers will have some responsibility to score big in the match. JJ Smit and Josh Davey are also crucial picks.

Prediction

It's again a very end-to-end clash and the match is likely to go down the wire. However, Namibia seem to be very dependent on David Wiese, while Scotland have some players they can look to help them in trouble.

Cricwizz predicts Scotland to win the match.
