David Wiese’s fighting knock in the T20 World Cup went for nothing as Namibia was eliminated.

The lone fighting knock from the seasoned David Wiese was in vain as Namibia was eliminated from the T20 World Cup 2022 in Srinagar.

In their last match of the group stage of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, which took place on Thursday in Geelong, the United Arab Emirates prevailed against Namibia by seven runs thanks to an all-around performance by Muhammad Waseem.

The hitters from the United Arab Emirates played the first half of the innings with a great deal of caution, as seen by the fact that the opening pair of Muhammad Waseem and Vritya Aravind only managed to put on 39 runs in eight overs. Aravind had trouble getting going and was out for 21 after facing 32 deliveries. However, as Rizwan joined Waseem at the plate, the United Arab Emirates picked up the pace of their innings.

Waseem had a good knock and reached his fifty before he was dismissed in the 15th over of the innings. Basil Hameed gave the late push to their innings and stayed unbroken on 25 despite only facing 14 deliveries. However, Rizwan continued to bat and is now undefeated on 43. In the last two overs of the innings, the pair contributed 33 runs, bringing UAE’s total to a respectable 148/3.

In order to successfully track down the objective, the soldiers led by Gerhard Erasmus needed to get off to a strong start. In contrast, they crumbled like a deck of cards as their score was down to 69/7. Basil Hameed was the one who started the collapse when he got Michael van Lingen and Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton out early in the innings. Following his brilliant batting performance at the end of the UAE innings, he finished the match with bowling numbers of 3-0-17-2.

The game seemed to be very well over for Namibia, but David Wiese played a beautiful knock and forged a key partnership with Ruben Trumpelmann, which raised the spirits of both his side and the supporters who came to watch them. He brought them to a point where they were extremely near to winning, as Namibia needed just 20 runs from their last two overs to win. He reached his fifty in just 31 deliveries and seemed sure that he would be able to catch up to them. In addition, Trumpelmann, who stayed undefeated on 25, performed an effective supporting role.

Waseem not only contributed to his team with a controlled fifty runs early in the match, but he also excelled with the ball when it came time to deliver the last over, bowling a magnificent over that helped the UAE win the contest. He crushed the expectations of the Namibian spectators by bowling precise yorkers and by removing Wiese from the game on the fourth delivery of the last over. The team led by Erasmus was able to achieve 141/8 in the end despite UAE’s exit from the competition with a seven-run victory.
