PAK vs NAM Live Stream:– ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Match 31
In the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Pakistan has had a great run. They have had a fantastic start to their Super 12 campaign, winning all three games they have played thus far.
Babar Azam and his teammates defeated Afghanistan by five wickets in their final encounter before winning their first two matches against India and New Zealand. The Men in Green will try to extend their winning streak against Namibia in their fourth encounter.
Babar Azam and M Rizwan are the openers.
On Tuesday, Pakistan's powerful opening pair of Babar Azam and M Rizwan should continue to open the innings. Regardless of the format, both batsmen have been outstanding in the last few years.
In the competition, Babar Azam has scored the most runs for Pakistan, while M Rizwan is in second place. On Tuesday, they are expected to form yet another outstanding opening partnership. Babar Azam has 128 runs in three games, while M Rizwan has 120 runs in three games.
The center of attention
The one crease Pakistan will like to improve is Hasan Ali's bowling form. Hasan has battled to locate the lines and lengths that make him so devastating at his best, either in the middle overs or at the death, in what has been a near-perfect tournament for almost every other player. Afghanistan got back into the game after a 21-run 18th over, and he gave up 44 runs in his four overs against India last Sunday. He also couldn't defend 18 in the final over of the warm-up game against South Africa, which is arguably more relevant in hindsight.
News from the team
Despite their first loss in four games against Afghanistan, Namibia is unlikely to make any changes to their lineup.
Pakistan has no qualms about changing their lineup, and with a semi-final berth nearly assured, they may give some of their squad players a chance to shine.
Pitch and environmental factors
Pace has been more important in Abu Dhabi than at the previous locations, and the stadium, which has the largest playing field, has produced unusually low-scoring contests. In the evening, temperatures are forecast to be warm, with the risk of dew.
