Right then! That is all we have from this game. The next clash will be between India and Scotland. It is going to be played in Dubai at 6 pm Local (2 pm GMT). Do join us for the same by switching tabs!
Kane Williamson, the skipper of New Zealand, says that they knew what to expect when they came to Sharjah. Adds that the surface was a challenging one so they were looking to get to a par score and tried to exploit the shorter boundary. Tells that they were looking to get a couple of big overs in with the bat in the end and they managed to do so. Says that Afghanistan is a fantastic team and they are playing really good cricket in this tournament, they will have to play well against them in the next game.
The Namibian skipper, Gerhard Erasmus, thinks that they bowled well till the 16th over, but the death overs did not go their way yet again. They will try to nail that against a good Indian side. Mentions it was quite a tough pitch and 160 runs were quite too much for today. Finishes by saying that he needs to go back home and nurse his finger.
James Neesham is the PLAYER OF THE MATCH! He says that they did what they had to do with the bat and they were eager to win this match. Tells that it was a tough surface to bat on so they were looking to run hard in the middle and look for boundaries less often. Adds that he is working on his bowling and he is ready whenever he is asked to bowl.
Stay tuned for the presentation.
It was a brilliant show with the ball by New Zealand. Their bowlers have been in good form in the competition and they delivered yet again here. The pacers bowled in good regions up front to make sure that Namibia are not off to a flier. Then, the spin duo of Santner and Sodhi strangled the batting in the middle overs to make sure that New Zealand are always on top of the game. All the bowlers with the exception of Milne took at least a wicket with Southee and Boult taking 2 each and the rest taking 1 apiece. But the win was set up by James Neesham and Glenn Phillips. The way they batted in the last few overs of New Zealand's innings, put New Zealand in a comfortable position.
The target wasn't the biggest for Namibia but on this pitch and against a quality attack, it was going to be a challenge. They needed a good start at the top. Stephan Baard and Michael Van Lingen did get a steady start but the scoring rate was slow. But after their departure, Namibia were in big trouble. Wickets kept falling and the required rate was climbing up. Zane Green and David Wiese did try to provide some momentum but failed and perished and after that, they had no chance to make a recovery and fell short by 22 runs.
Another clinical win for New Zealand and this will help their cause as they try to make it to the semi-finals. Namibia would be disappointed though. If they had finished well with the ball, they would have needed to chase a lower target against this quality bowling attack.
