India signed off their disappointing T20 World Cup campaign with a nine-wicket win over Namibia in Dubai on Monday.

India reached the 133 run target in 15.2 overs with Rohit Sharma (56) and KL Rahul (54 not out) stitching 86 runs for the opening stand to set up the win in their final Super 12 match.

Suryakumar Yadav also remained not out on 25. For Namibia, Jan Frylinck took one wicket.

Earlier, India restricted Namibia to 132 for 8.

Invited to bat, Namibia struggled to get going and they suffered a batting collapse after an opening stand of 33 between Stephan Baard (21) and Michael van Lingen (14).

David Wiese top-scored for Namibia with a 25-ball 26.

For India, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja took three wickets apiece while Jasprit Bumrah got two.
