India skipper Virat Kohli has won the toss and elected to bowl vs Namibia in the last Super 12 stage match of the ongoing T20 World Cup at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Monday. Both the teams made one change in their playing XI as Rahul Chahar comes in for Varun Chakravarthy in the Indian squad while Jan Frylinck has replaced Karl Birkenstock in Scotland playing XI. The result of this game will make no changes in both the teams’ fate in the tournament as New Zealand and Pakistan have qualified for the semifinals from Group 2. India have lost their spot in the final four for the first time in any ICC event since the 2012 T20 World Cup that was played in Sri Lanka. This is also Virat Kohli’s last match as T20I skipper and he will hope say a final goodbye to the captaincy in the shortest format on a winning note. On the other side, playing their first T20 World Cup, Namibia have won just one of their four Super 12 matches. (LIVE SCORECARD)
