The 19th match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Scotland and Namibia at the ICC Academy in Dubai.

Namibia have not got off to an ideal start in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 with back to back losses against Netherlands and Papua New Guinea. While they lost by 44 runs against Netherlands, the team suffered an even bigger 81-run loss against PNG.

While losing would have hurt, what would have hurt the team more is the margins by which they lost. They were completely outplayed in their last match against Papua New Guinea with the team conceding 197 runs.

All of their bowlers went for plenty apart from Bernard Scholtz and skipper Gerhard Erasmus. The team was then bundled out for just 116, with no batsman even crossing the 20-run mark.

Scotland suffered an upset against Singapore in the first match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019. The team first conceded 168 runs to Singapore despite two wickets each from Safyaan Sharif and Josh Davey.

George Munsey and skipper Kyle Coetzer then began well but the team ended up losing by 3 wickets in the last over.

Scotland then stormed back against Kenya by piling up 170 on the board. Two wickets each from Safyaan Sharif and Josh Davey and three from Richie Berrington meant that they won comfortably by 31 runs.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Scotland- Kyle Coetzer, George Munsey, Calum MacLeod, Ollie Hairs, Richie Berrington, Matthew Cross, Tom Sole, Safyaan Sharif, Josh Davey, Mark Watt, Hamza Tahir

Namibia- Niko Davin, JP Kotze, Gerhard Erasmus, JJ Smit, Zane Green, Craig Williams, Christi Viljoen, Jan Frylinck, Pikky Ya France, Zhivago Groenewald, Bernard Scholtz
