The former South African cricketer is now playing for Namibia. Seeing limited opportunities in South African cricket, Wiese decided to become a T20 freelancer to ply his trade in franchise cricket. Wiese had not played international cricket since March 2016 and decided to take the Kolpak route. Seeing him many other African cricketers also went that way.

In this T20 World Cup, Wiese is playing for Namibia and recently delivered a match-winning performance to help his side beat Namibia. He took 1 for 32 with the ball and scored an unbeaten 66 off 40 hitting four fours and five sixes.

England skipper Eoin Morgan made his international debut for Ireland in 2007. He played the 50-over for the side that year. Eight years down the line in 2015, Morgan led England in the 2015 50-Over World Cup.

He then took England again to the final of the 2016 T20 World Cup before finally lifting the World Cup title in 2019. He again is leading the side in the 2021 T20 World Cup.

His form is a bit of a concern as he has been short of runs in recent times, however, the Three Lions will bank of his leadership skills to help them win their second T20 title.
