India and Namibia will going to meet in Fatullah for the second quarterfinal of the tournament. India start out as favourites but in a tournament riddled with uncertainty, Namibia will fancy their chances. Having already surpassed all expectations, it could be a ‘nothing to lose’ fixture for them while India, in pursuit of their fourth World Cup title at the Under-19 level, will play with massive expectations. Even at the youth level, India have walked into the tournament with a lot of hopes pinned on them. Rahul Dravid’s role as a coach provides an even better narrative for Ishan Kishan’s boys to go on clinch title for India. To its credit, the team has been commendably clinical. Despite sealing their knockout berth after two wins, the three-time champions (2000, 2008 and 2012) did not let complacency creep in and put on their most dominant performance against Nepal, where they solved their nagging problem at the top of the batting order.

India will win the toss will chose to bat first and win the match. Their all-round effort against Nepal showed that India were in no mood to take any opponent lightly and with a semifinal spot at stake, Namibia should expect a massive challenge. If India have looked like a well-oiled machine, Namibia have rode on the lack of expectation and the unmissable team spirit. Their opening victory over Scotland, where both bowlers and the top-three batsmen chipped in with equal contributions, gave them the push that helped them overcome defending champions South Africa to script a fairy tale and advance to the knockouts. Team spirit aside, Green will also hope to rattle the Indian batsmen with his seamers, who’ve done exceptionally well in the tournament so far. The first two fixtures exposed Kishan’s weakness against early seam and swing, one that the pace duo of Fritz Coetzee and Warren van Wyk could exploit early.
Michael van Lingen bowled an inspired spell (4 for 24) of medium pace to wreak havoc against South Africa and will be itching to have a go at India too. If they can get the better of Sarfaraz Khan, India’s top-scorer thus far, the middle-order, largely untested in this tournament, will have a task at their hands. Washington Sundar and Armaan Jaffer, two of the promising faces in the batting order, are yet to spend enough time at the wicket and play a big knock. If Namibia can deny them that, they could be in with a chance to upset India. Green admitted that they watched India on TV and that they were a great side but a closer assessment of their opposition would’ve given them some headstart ahead of what will be a grueling task.
