Namibia and Scotland are set to face off in a pivotal Group B match at the Kensington Oval. Both teams are coming into the contest with promising signs from their previous outings, albeit under different circumstances.

Namibia managed to secure a narrow victory against Oman, relying on their resilience to clinch the win via a Super Over. Conversely, Scotland, despite a strong start, were unable to complete their match against England due to adverse weather conditions, resulting in a shared outcome.

In terms of their head-to-head record, Namibia holds the advantage over Scotland. Their previous T20I encounter occurred during the T20 World Cup 2021, where Namibia emerged victorious by four wickets.

The match will take place at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, with kick-off scheduled for Friday, June 7, at 12:00 AM PST. The venue has already witnessed three matches in this edition of the tournament, with batting proving challenging for most teams in the first and third games. However, Scotland seemed to adapt better, despite playing under overcast skies.
