Virat Kohli wins toss in his last game as India’s T20I skipper, opt to bowl against Namibia in T20 World Cup clash

Outgoing India skipper Virat Kohli received the toss and opted to bowl against Namibia in the staff’s remaining Super 12 match of the continuing ICC males’s T20 World Cup at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday (November 8).

Speaking on the toss, Kohli mentioned, “We’ll bowl first. The tosses have been a big factor, and when I’ve won a couple we’ll do what we wanted to do from the start.”

On the opposite hand, Namibia skipper Gerhard Erasmus mentioned, “It’s a good opportunity to go up against arguably the world’s best side, and for our batsmen to go up against that bowling line-up of theirs. It was a big thing to get through the group stages.”

Team India have been knocked out of the World Cup on Sunday after Afghanistan failed to defeat New Zealand. Even if the Men in Blue wins against Namibia, they’d not have the option to leapfrog New Zealand on the second place in Group 2 to make the semi-finals.

India Playing XI: KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Rahul Chahar, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah

Namibia Playing XI: Stephan Baard, Michael van Lingen, Craig Williams, Gerhard Erasmus (c), Zane Green (wk), David Wiese, Jan Frylinck, JJ Smit, Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, Ruben Trumpelmann, Bernard Scholtz.
