T20 World Cup: David Wiese stars with bat and ball as Namibia beat Oman in a super over

Namibia were forced to dig deep before beating Oman in a super over in their T20 World Cup opener in Barbados with David Wiese starring with bat and ball.

The game was forced to the extra over after both sides made 109, Namibia smashing 21 from their six balls with Wiese hitting a six and a four, captain Gerhard Erasmus adding two fours.

After performing with the bat, Wiese took the ball and sealed the game for Namibia as he grabbed a wicket while conceding just 10 runs.

Oman had a nightmare start to their regulation innings, losing two wickets in the first two balls from Ruben Trumpelmann at Kensington Oval in Barbados.

Solid middle order batting from Khalid Kail and Zeeshan Maqsood helped them to 109 all out in the final over.

Namibia looked on course for an easy chase at 73 for three after 14 overs, but a collapse set up the exciting super over.

Jan Frylink anchored the innings with 45 off 48 balls, but he was one of two wickets to fall in the final over, leaving Wiese needing two runs off the final ball.

A leg bye and a missed shy at the stump set up the final over.

Oman will face Australia in their next match while Namibia tackle Scotland.
