Namibia will face Oman in their opening match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

A total of 20 teams will feature in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024; this is the highest number of teams to take part in the main tournament of any T20 World Cup.

The tournament will start with the group stage. Then the top two teams from the four groups will make it to the Super 8 round, which will be followed by the knockouts. In total, there will be 55 matches played in the tournament, including the final on June 29. Three teams will make their men’s T20 World Cup debut in this tournament, which has added excitement among the fans.

Namibia, who made their T20 World Cup debut in 2021, will be playing their third edition on the trot. They are placed in Group B, where they will face Australia, England, Scotland and Oman. Gerhard Erasmus will be leading his country at this event and they will fancy their chances against some teams.

Here we will talk about five Namibian players whom you can pick on your Dream11 team in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Here are the five Namibian stars you must have in your Dream11 teams during the ICC T20 World Cup 2024:

5. David Wiese

David Wiese is a world-recognized all-rounder who made a name for himself in the T20 circuit around the globe before joining Namibia. He has represented South Africa as well. He’s been a match-winner in T20 leagues around the world.

He is a powerful striker of the ball and can play brilliant cameos while batting lower down the order. Further, he can strike with the old ball when the batters are swinging for the fences on almost every delivery. Hence, you can’t drop him from your fantasy team.

4. JJ Smit

Johannes Jonathan Smit is a superb choice to make captain of your fantasy cricket teams across platforms during the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Smit is a multi-dimensional cricketer. He takes wickets, scores runs and is one of the fastest movers on the field. A T20I batting average and strike rate of 39.33 and 148.83 respectively, along with a bowling strike rate of 16 reflect on Smit’s match-winning skills.

3. Jan Frylinck

Jan Frylinck is also someone who is equipped with match-winning abilities with both bat and ball. He is a batter who bats at numbers 3 or 4 and plays the anchor role brilliantly. He regularly bowls his full quota of four overs. Frylinck can give you more chances to collect fantasy points. Hence, you can pick him as captain or vice-captain for your Dream11 team.

2. Bernard Scholtz

Veteran Namibian spinner Bernard Scholtz is someone who has a knack for taking wickets regularly. He is the go-to bowler for his team. Scholtz is his country’s highest wicket-taker: 64 wickets with a brilliant economy rate of 6.06. He bowls tight lines and lengths to keep the batters in check.

1. Gerhard Erasmus

Among the lower-ranked sides, the captain is almost always the best player of the team. Namibia skipper Gerhard Erasmus is someone who contributes heavily in both departments. He is a genuine all-rounder and he has been at the front of Namibia’s success in recent years. He bats in the middle-order and often bowls his full quota of four overs. So he can be someone who can be an ideal Dream11 captain.
