Nigeria and Tanzania are set to face off in the seventh game of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Africa Region Qualifier 2023 on Sunday, November 26. The match will take place at the United Cricket Club Ground in Windhoek.
Nigeria, led by Isaac Okpe, currently sit in fifth place with one point and a net run rate of -0.050. They suffered a defeat to Kenya by four wickets on November 23, and their second match against Rwanda on November 24 was disrupted by rain when they were 33 for 2 in six overs.
Meanwhile, Tanzania, captained by Abhik Patwa, are struggling at the bottom of the table with a net run rate of -2.920. They were defeated by Kenya by 50 runs in their previous match on November 25, failing to chase down a target of 183.
In their head-to-head encounters in T20Is, Nigeria has never beaten Tanzania in three matches, with Tanzania winning two games and one match being called off. The pitch in Windhoek is not expected to favor batsmen, and spinners are likely to have a significant impact in the second innings.
The weather in Windhoek is expected to be favorable for the match, with no rain forecasted and temperatures around 25 degrees Celsius with humidity in the 60s and 70s. Based on current form and recent performances, Nigeria is favored to win the match. Live streaming details are yet to be confirmed.
