India won the toss and elected to field in the inconsequential T20 World Cup clash against Namibia. They unleashed a three-pronged spin attack, with Rahul Chahar getting his first game of the tournament. The Indian spinners have derailed Namibia's innings after the openers – Michael van Lingen and Stephan Baard – provided them a quick start. Ravindra Jadeja struck thrice, while R Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah too entered the wickets column. This was the first time in this World Cup a team deployed spin in all nine overs between overs 7-15.
