T20 World Cup 2024 NAM vs Oman: Namibia Star David Wiese’s stand in the T20 World Cup 2024‘s first Super Over encounter helped the side start their campaign with a win at Barbados. Namibia and Oman played in the first match of Group B in the tournament where two associate nations clashed against each other at Kensington Oval on Monday.
