Probable Playing XI


Namibia shouldn’t be making any changes to their side after big wins over Bermuda and Scotland. In a group where all teams have won at least two games, Namibia will bank on captain, Gerhard Erasmus and Bernard Scholtz, who has been utterly sensational with the ball. Their batting unit is slowly finding its feet with Stephan Baard being one to watch out for on Friday.
Stephan Baard, Niko Davin, JP Kotze, Craig Williams, JJ Smit, Gerhard Erasmus, Zane Green, Ben Shikongo, Bernard Scholtz, Christi Viljoen and Jan Frylinck
Kenya also comes into this contest with a lot of confidence. They pulled off a superb chase against Singapore courtesy of Irfan Karim and Aman Gandhi’s century stand. They will once again be crucial to their fortunes along with Collins Obuya. Obuya has starred with bat and ball this season while the likes of Otieno and Ngoche have also done well in the tournament so far.
