After T20 series, Namibia will be hosting Zimbabwe Emerging Team for the One-Day series. Namibia emerged successful in all three matches of the T20 series and will begin this one with roaring confidence.

If you look a bit outside, the series is not about winning but giving Namibia players the must-needed match time before heading into the World Cup T20 qualifiers.

As expected, the team did the same in the third T20. They had rested most of their prominent players, including JJ Smit, to test the bench strength. It is to be noted that right before the third T20, JJ Smit smashed 93*.

As a result, the team won the first two T20 convincingly but they had to fight a bit harder to get through the third one.
