So, that is it from this game! PAKISTAN ARE THROUGH TO THE SEMIS! Action from the T20 World Cup continues on Wednesday as there are yet again two games. New Zealand take on Scotland first and then India will be facing Afghanistan. Action begins at 1400 local (1000 GMT). Till then, take care and goodbye!
Babar Azam, the Pakistan skipper, says, they started the campaign brilliantly and are just carrying on their form. Mentions, they had a different plan today to bat first, they started slowly and made sure to take it deep. Adds, Hafeez is the senior player of the squad and he is glad he could find his form in the game. Also, praises efforts of Hasan Ali with the new ball today. Adds, it became difficult to field with a little bit of dew. Ends by saying, they will try to execute their plans and give it their all in the semi-finals.
The skipper of Namibia, Gerhard Erasmus, says that Pakistan look like serious title contenders and they played really well. Mentions that the road ahead is not easy as they have New Zealand to face next and they are a great side. Says that they will take the learning from this match and will look to perform better. Adds that his finger is getting better.
Mohammad Rizwan, wins the man of the match award for his gun blazing effort with the blade. He says that at the start it was difficult to play as the pitch was tricky. Mentions that Namibia bowled really well first but he took the match deep to get runs and put up a good total. Tells that the plan was to get runs in the back end and it worked well. Adds that their team has been performing well and each and every player is contributing and have all their boxes ticked.
... PRESENTATION TIME ...
Earlier on in the innings, after opting to bat, Pakistan batters started slowly, as they were not familiar with the conditions. But the batters grew slowly into the innings and smacked around 190-runs on the scoreboard. Later, Namibia started off really well, but they kept losing wickets regularly and could not take the game deep. Pakistan passed the hurdle with ease in the end.
For Pakistan, the positive with the ball was Hasan Ali who did find some form. However, Shaheen and Shadab did not have the best days. Overall though, Pakistan will be pleased with how they fared in this game. Also, with this win Pakistan have qualified to the semi-finals from Group 2.
Yet another win for Pakistan! This was never in doubt to be honest after they smashed something close to 190. Namibia though can still be proud of their effort with the bat, especially after their performance against Afghanistan. They came out and looked to play with good intent, there were some good innings from Williams, Braad and Wiese. They though would have loved for one of them to go and make it big but that was not the case.
