New Zealand one win away from semi finals after beating Namibia

New Zealand put on a thorough all-around performance to beat Namibia in the first Group 2 clash of the day in Sharjah in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

The the52-run win helps New Zealand leapfrog Afghanistan to the second spot in the Group 2 standings. 

Chasing 164, Namibia was unable to take advantage of the fielding restrictions as the New Zealand pacers kept a leash on the scoring. They eventually reaped the rewards, scalping three wickets after the Powerplay as the pressure kept building. 

Namibia never managed to recover from there as the Black Caps kept pegging at the wickets. The Eagles could only get to 111/7 as they fell short by 52 runs. 

Earlier, late fireworks from Glenn Phillips and Jimmy Neesham propelled New Zealand to 163/4.

After Namibia pulled it back in the middle overs with quick wickets of Kane Williamson and Devon Conway, Neesham and Phillips’ unbeaten 76 run partnership helped them finish strong.
