Sharjah: Namibia on Friday made history by making the Super 12s on their T20 World Cup debut but coach Pierre De Bruyn said his team is not done yet and promised a competitive showing against big sides like India, Pakistan and New Zealand.

Namibia beat Ireland in their final group match on Friday to qualify for Super 12s.

“Yeah, look, it’s time for us to reflect and also enjoy this moment, but we certainly didn’t come here just to go and lie down now,” de Bruyn said.

“Facing India, Pakistan, New Zealand, those type of teams is going to be a great experience for these players, but you know, we want to be competitive in whatever we do, with ball, bat, in the field, the way we present ourselves, the way — we’re going to compete, so we’re looking forward to that.”
