|Venue||Simonds Stadium, Geelong|
Captain Emirates: CB Radwan
A great moment for UAE cricket. I would like to thank my coach and administrator. We’ve been working fine on patches, but everything clicked together today. (In bowling handsome at death) He used to throw a lot of die in our local cricket and with Oz, I relied on my average cricket instincts. This win is really big for UAE cricket, and it can tell the world we are here!
Namibia captain: Gerhard Erasmus
I thought we put the ball in well to keep them under 150. I think it was a lot below par, but we let them out with some shots in the middle. In these types of games, we need to respond better to situations when the momentum is away from us. (on David Weiss) He’s a match-winner and plays all over the world, and our dressing room can learn a lot from him.
Match player: Mohamed Waseem
Death was hard to beat after so long, but I’ve always been confident. I think the way we threw in the second, we’re back in the game. The plan was to keep it straight because the boundary in front of the lot was too long. In the last two games, we were in a position to win, we could have won them. Very happy to win the World Cup match for the first time.
