Nigeria and Tanzania are set to battle it out in the seventh game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Africa Region Qualifier 2023 on November 26. The match will take place at the United Cricket Club Ground in Windhoek.
Nigeria, led by Isaac Okpe, are currently ranked fifth in the tournament, with one point and a net run rate of -0.050. They suffered a defeat against Kenya by four wickets on November 23 and faced a rain-affected match against Rwanda on November 24.
On the other hand, Tanzania, captained by Abhik Patwa, is struggling at the bottom of the table with a net run rate of -2.920. They faced a 50-run loss against Kenya in their previous match.
The two teams have met three times in T20Is, with Tanzania winning two matches and one match resulting in no result.
The pitch at the United Cricket Club Ground is not expected to be favorable for batsmen, and targets above 150 runs could be challenging to chase down. The playing conditions are expected to be decent, with temperatures around 25 degrees Celsius and moderate humidity.
The match is set to be live streamed on Fancode, and considering Nigeria’s previous encounters with Tanzania, they are predicted to win the match.
