Stephan Baard is a talented opener for Namibia.
Namibia are playing some quality cricket at the moment, having won the T20 series 2-1. It gave them an extra boost in the one-dayers as they sealed a 5-wicket victory in the 1st one-day and lead the 3 match series 1-0. Skipper Merwe Erasmus is in an extraordinary form, which is a plus sign for them.
Not enough runs on the board on a batting-friendly surface made South Africa Emerging lose the first one day by 5 wickets. They must win this match to take the series to the decider, which is to be played on the 1st of May. Runs should come from their top-order batters if they want to put huge scores on the board.

It’s a pretty balanced wicket that has got good carry and bounce. The bowlers will get initial help from the surface and after one hour it will be easy to bat on. Whoever wins the toss should bowl first.
