On Monday, India will lock horns with minnows Namibia in their last ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Super 12 fixture at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. With the semifinals line-up already decided, the teams will look to end their campaign on a high.
New Zealand’s win against Afghanistan on Sunday meant that India will be knocked out of the tournament, even if they win big in their final match against Namibia. It is a disappointing finish for one of the pre-tournament favourites.

While the stakes are low for India, for Namibia it is a treasured opportunity to learn by playing against some of the best and finish the tournament on a high. However, they will have to battle mental fatigue from months on the road and living in bubble life for one final push.
