NAM vs NED, 5th Match Preview
Game 3 in Pool A of the 2022 T20 World Cup brings Namibia together with Netherlands on Tuesday afternoon in Geelong. Both sides won their opening matches on Sunday. Namibia pulled off a shock to beat Sri Lanka with Netherlands beating UAE. Namibia qualified for the Super 12 Stage last year and look very well placed to do so again after seeing off Sri Lanka on Sunday. They will back themselves to beat all teams in this Pool. Netherlands were nervous at times but had just about enough quality to beat UAE in their opening match. However, Namibia will be a much tougher proposition in this match.
