Pakistan Beat Namibia To Reach T20 WC Semi Final

ABU DHABI: Opening partnership (113) for Pakistan between Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan helped Men in Green to crush Namibia in their fourth match of International Cricket Council (ICC) Twenty20 World Cup at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

Pakistan beat Namibia by 45 runs in their T20 World Cup clash at Abu Dhabi and Babar, Rizwan star in Pakistan’s crushing win over Namibia. However, Rizwan has been declared man of the match.

The Namibian side first lost an early wicket in the second over as Hasan Ali dismissed Michael van Lingen (4), and later, in the ninth over, Stephan Baard was run out for 29.

In the 13th over, skipper Gerhard Erasmus was caught out (15) shortly after Shaheen Shah Afridi had dropped his catch in the previous over. Craig Williams was caught out in the 14th over, but he played a decent innings as he scored 40 runs off 37 balls.

Earlier, skipper Babar Azam and fellow opener Mohammad Rizwan hit half-centuries to guide Pakistan to 189-2.
