23:10 (IST)

Pakistan win by 45 runs  and qualify for semis

Brilliant from them. Four wins in four. Pakistan started off slowly and were 59/0 from 10 overs. But then they picked up the scoring and smashed 130 off the next 10. Babar made 70 off 49 while Rizwan made 79 off 50. Hafeez too provided a late surge with 16-ball 32 to propel Pakistan to 189/2. 

In reply, Namibia never got the momentum going. They had the wickets in hand but couldn't break through Pakistan's disciplined bowling. And then they lost wickets under pressure and could manage just 144 in reply to Pakistan's 189.

SIX AND FOUR! Wiese lofts it straight back over Shaheen's head for a six and then pulls it to fine leg for a four off a NO BALL! He edges one to the keeper off the FREE HIT

SIX! Wiese lofts it straight down the ground, off Rauf.

22:59 (IST)

After 18 overs,Namibia 116/5 ( David Wiese 21 , Nicol Loftie-Eaton 3)

Rauf bowls a really good over. Changes his pace really well. There is a slower one that foxes Smit and gets his wicket and then there is a fast bouncer that hits Wiese smack on the helmet. Thankfully he is fine after being attended to by the physio.

Hasan Ali is then brought into the attack and he bowls a frugal over, giving away just 5 runs. Wiese miscued his slice just over point for a couple. 74 needed off 12 balls.

OUT! The slower ball does the trick as Rauf removes JJ Smit. Rauf bowls it on good length, it's that slower one, Smit goes for a swing across the line but gets a top edge to mid-wicket where the fielder makes no mistake.

22:47 (IST)

After 16 overs,Namibia 107/4 ( David Wiese 16 , JJ Smit 2)

Namibia getting that odd boundary but it's too less. The match is running away from them. Hasan Ali goes up with a huge appeal off the first ball of the 15th over but there was an inside edge which the umpire spotted and shook his head. After a two, Wiese smashes one over point for a four. The last two balls yielded two singles. 8 runs off the Ali over.

Shaheen is brought back into the attack. A gives away just a single off the first two balls. But then delivers a low full toss which Wiese lofts over mid off, off a single hand for a four. Just six runs off the Afridi over. 83 needed off 24 balls.

22:40 (IST)

After 14 overs,Namibia 93/4 ( David Wiese 4 , JJ Smit 0)

Namibia have lost a couple of wickets in the last two overs. They are looking to up the aggression but Pakistan have been disciplined and not allowed them to gain the momentum. Wasim gives away just 6 runs and gets the wicket of Erasmus. Shadab conceded a boundary which was smashed over point but he got out next ball trying to clear long off. 9 runs and a wicket off the Shadab over. 15 off the last 2.

Pakistan vs Namibia, Latest Updates, T20 World Cup 2021: Pakistan win by 45 runs. They qualify for semis. Brilliant from them. Four wins in four.

Preview: Pakistan have never played a T20 international against Namibia but veteran all-rounder Shoaib Malik has said his team's morale was "high", particularly after last month's win over India ahead of the clash against Namibia in Abu Dhabi.

Pakistan have raced to three wins in as many games starting with a resounding ten-wicket opening fixture victory over arch-rivals India followed by New Zealand and Afghanistan.

They need another win to qualify for the semi-finals from Group 2 of the Super 12 stage.

"The morale in the camp is high," said 39-year-old Malik before Tuesday's meeting.

"When you win games, the confidence level is quite high in the dressing room. Everyone is looking forward to playing the rest of the games we have left in the tournament.

"When you start your tournament against a big team (India) and then you win that game, then everything comes in your dressing room."

Pakistan have never played a T20 international against Namibia while they won the only ODI between the two sides in the 2003 World Cup (50 overs) with a 171-run margin in South Africa.

Malik said Namibia, who qualified from the first round and have beaten Scotland, will not be taken lightly.

"To be honest, we are not thinking any different because T20 format is where you can't take the opposition lightly," he said.  "And we are fully confident, so we are looking forward for the game."

Pakistan have played the same eleven in all three games but considering a relatively easier opponent, ranked 15th in the world in the format, they could rotate their side.

Malik admitted bio-secure confinement for the players in the COVID-19 restriction is a challenge.

"Bubble life, it's a tough thing, especially when you're like playing a lot of back-to-back series," he said.
