In the first encounter of the Twenty20 World Cup 2022, Namibia handed the defending champions of the Asia Cup 2022, Sri Lanka, a crushing defeat. This result stunned the entire cricketing community. Now, Namibia is in an excellent position to advance to the Super-12 stage of the World Cup, having put themselves in this position.
However, it must first compete in two more contests before it can begin to celebrate its victory. The Netherlands are up next, and like Australia, they were victorious in their first encounter. Despite this, the victory was not nearly as convincing.
Match prediction and betting suggestions for the cricket match between Namibia and the Netherlands in the Twenty20 World Cup 2022. On October 18, 2022, the contest will take place in Simonds Stadium, which is located in Geelong.
NAM vs NL Team Previews
The main characteristics that Namibia possesses were on display during their match versus Sri Lanka. Runs were scored by the middle order, and the bowling attack stayed true to its game plan. In this particular match against the Netherlands, Namibia will be expecting for exactly the same thing, but with a greater contribution from the top order.
There aren’t very many associate sides that can compete with Namibia’s powerful middle order. All four of Frylinck, Wiese, Erasmus, and Baard are highly effective when it comes to striking the ball. In spite of the fact that David Wiese did not score a single run in the previous match, Namibia still managed to accumulate a respectable number of runs.
The bowling lineup shown a high level of self-control. Two of Wiese’s wickets were taken by Shikongo, who came within a centimeter of claiming a hat trick, while Scholtz’s bowling was quite economical as well. Wiese took two wickets.

Although the Netherlands were victorious in their encounter against the UAE, their performance was not at all convincing. They bowled effectively to keep the UAE from scoring more than 111, and then they won the match with just one ball remaining and three wickets in hand.
The batting of the Netherlands is definitely not one of their strengths, and if they lose a number of wickets quickly, their side could be put in a difficult position. The bowling, on the other hand, is a little bit better. The bowling quartet consisting of Fred Klaassen, Tim Pringle, Bas de Leede, and Logan van Beek is widely regarded as one of the most formidable in associate cricket.
If the Netherlands are going to have any shot at winning this competition, their best bet is to focus on their bowling.
However, Max’Dowd and Vikramjit Singh will need to play like their lives depend on it in order to make sure that the squad achieves enough runs. We don’t see it occurring, and we believe that the Netherlands are going to have a very difficult time winning this match.

Pitch and Conditions
The weather outlook for Geelong is looking very favorable, so there shouldn’t be an excessive number of delays or cancellations. The first couple of games that were played at this site had batting conditions that were a little bit challenging. The scores were significantly lower than anticipated, and the ball did not really come on all that well. This means that we could play a game in which a total of 150 to 160 is once again a very good total.
NAM vs NL Betting Tips
We are going to put our money on Namibia to come out on top in this match. It has a more powerful hitting lineup and obviously has faith in the lineup that it has chosen. The Netherlands will believe that their bowling team has what it takes to pull off an upset, but we don’t see it happening. It is highly likely that Namibia will win this match.
Bet on Namibia to come out on top.
