Namibia didn’t have a great start to their innings as they lost JP Kotze for a duck.

Zane Green (28:27b, 1x4, 1x6) then made a handy contribution in the end as Namibia posted a total of 155 runs on the board. For Scotland, Brad Wheal picked three wickets. 

In the chase, Scotland came under pressure at the start as they lost George Munsey, Michael Jones (26:20b, 3x4, 1x6), Brandon McMullen (19:17b, 2x4) and Matthew Cross early and found themselves at 73 for four. However, after that skipper Richie Berrington (47 not out:35b,2x4, 2x6) and Michael Leask (35:17b, 4x6) joined hands and added 74 for the fifth wicket.
