In the T20 World Cup 2022, at the GMHBA Stadium in Geelong, after UAE put a decent total of 148/3 runs on the board, the Namibian batting lineup lost seven wickets without even reaching the halfway mark of the target. It led to David Wiese stitching together a 70-run stand with Ruben Trumpelmann for the eighth wicket, scoring 55 off 36 with three fours and three maximums, but in the last over, he lost his wicket, which led to Namibia suffering a tough seven-run loss.
