India (IND) lock horns with Namibia (NAM) in match 42 of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday, November 8.

IND vs NAM Dream11 prediction

India and Namibia cross swords in the final Super 12 match of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021. This will be the first meeting between the two teams in a T20I game. 

The Indian team have won three out of their five Super 12 matches in the tournament so far. Meanwhile, Namibia - who are at the bottom of the standings - are yet to win a game in the Super 12s. They will look to finish their campaign on a high.  

IND vs NAM Dream11 team tips for ICC T20 World Cup 2021

Top tip: Best batter

India’s KL Rahul will be the best choice in this category. The 29-year-old has scored 140 runs in four innings so far at a strike rate of 154. The opener has been by far India’s best batter in the ongoing T20 World Cup and is coming off a whirlwind knock of 50 off 19 balls against Scotland in the previous fixture. Selected by 95 per cent of the fantasy users, KL Rahul is a worthy pick despite his high price of 10 credits.  

Top tip: Best bowlers

Ravichandran Ashwin is a no-brainer for this clash. The Tamil Nadu off-spinner bowled with discipline against Scotland in his first T20I match since 2017 and returned with impressive figures of 1/29 in his four overs. With three left-handers in Namibia’s top seven, Ashwin will hold the key for India in the middle-overs. At 8.5 credits, the 35-year-old will be a good budget pick. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

With 201 runs and six wickets in seven matches, Namibia’s David Wiese leads all-rounder options in this match. Against a powerful team such as India, the South African-born player, who commands a batting average of 50 and an economy rate of 7.30, will have to perform to his maximum capability. Selected by 88 per cent of fantasy users, David Wiese is a must-have pick for 9.5 credits. 

As far as the wicket-keeping situation goes, Rishabh Pant is the best choice between the two teams. Having struck a quick 27 against Afghanistan a couple of days ago, the attacking left-hander will be relied upon to finish the innings for India. Pant is a deadly batter who is capable of utterly dominating games once he has gained control. A player such as Rishabh Pant would be an excellent addition to any fantasy team.    

IND vs NAM probable playing XI

IND playing XI (probable): KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (captain), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Varun Chakaravarthy, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

NAM playing XI (probable): Stephan Baard, Craig Williams, Gerhard Erasmus (captain), David Wiese, JJ Smit, Zane Green (wicket-keeper), Michael van Lingen, Karl Birkenstock, Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Ruben Trumpelmann, Bernard Scholtz
