India Vs Namibia T20 World Cup India Beat Minnows Namibia Virat Kohli Ravi Shastri Partnership Ends In IND V NAM T20 World Cup Dubai Match


New Delhi: Rohit Sharma (37-ball 56) and Kl Rahul (35-ball 54) shared a solid match-winning 59-ball 86 partnership for the first wicket after Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin bowled magical spells to power India to 9-wicket win over minnows Namibia in their final match of the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday.

Virat Kohli did not get to bat in his last game as T20 captain but he and coach Ravi Shastri does get to end their World Cup campaign on a high as team India managed to bow out with a resounding win over Namibia. Not only just Kohli and Shastri, but even bowling coach Bharat Arun and fieldiing coach R. Sridhar’s tenure with the national squad ends with a winning note. Batting coach Vikram Rathour has reapplied for the position.

Earlier, Virat Kohli, playing his last game as team India’s T20I skipper, won the toss and decided to bowl first against minnows Namibia. Spinners Ravindra Jadeja (3/16) and Ravichandran Ashwin (3/16) spun a web around batters as the duo shared six wickets between them to rock their opponents. 

Baard and Michael van Lingen gave their team a good start, playing some good strokes against Indian speedsters to push their team to 33/0, but Bumrah got the much-needed breakthrough and then spinners took over to get the job done. After losing quick wickets against India’s formidable spin attack, Wiese, Frylinck and Trumpelmann chipped in with few runs in the death overs to push Namibia to a respectable total.
