During the match, the Australian fielding coach caught Josh Hazlewood’s ball in the warm-up match against Namibia, and the Namibian team was bowled out for 119 runs.

On behalf of Australia, Josh Hazlewood dismissed 5 and Adam Zampa dismissed 3 players, after which Australia achieved the target for 3 wickets within 10 overs, David Warner scored an unbeaten half-century on behalf of the Kangaroos.
