Uganda 90 for 4 trail Namibia 165 by 75 runs

Namibia ended an action-packed opening day of their match against Uganda at Windhoek on just about level terms. After they were bowled out for only 165, Namibia struck back with four wickets as Uganda closed on 91 for 4.

Deon Kotze won the toss and chose to bat, but Namibia were in trouble straight away when D Keulder was caught off K Kamyaka for a duck. The wickets continued to tumble, as four of Uganda's bowlers chipped in with two scalps apiece. Only K Walters, at No. 3, managed to get into the 20s, scoring 25 before he was caught off Kamyaka, as Namibia folded in 67.1 overs.

Uganda then made a brisk start to their innings, as M Naiko and B Musolo put on 61 for the opening wicket. However, after they were both accounted for by the Burgers, Kotze chipped in with two more wickets to take the total tally to 14 in one day. Uganda trail by 74 runs.
