Pakistan and Namibia played a T20I match for the first time in cricket history at Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi last night. As expected, it was an asymmetrical match, with the Pakistan cricket team coming out victorious against the Namibian team. For the first time in the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup, Pakistan’s cricket team beat first and defeated Namibia by 45 points.
Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were the protagonists of Pakistan’s victory against Namibia last night. The two forerunners of the Pakistan cricket team continued their magnificent form in the game’s shortest format and helped their team record a comfortable win. With that victory, Pakistan qualified for the semi-finals of the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup, becoming the first team to qualify for the semi-finals in five different editions of the ICC T20 World Cup.
As the Namibian team is making its ICC T20 World Cup debut, they too would not be disappointed with their effort. Namibian batters scored 144 points against a high-quality Pakistani attack. After the match, the Pakistani players decided to visit the Namibian team’s dressing room and surprise them.
The players of the two teams interacted and this gesture by the Pakistan cricket team not only won the hearts of the Namibian team but also the entire universe of cricket. You can watch that video here:
