Namibia 165 and 130 for 2 (KB Burger 9*, Walters 2*) lead Uganda 274 trail by 21 runs
After 14 wickets fell on a jittery opening day, Namibia and Uganda's batsmen were more settled second-time around, as their Intercontinental Cup clash built towards an intriguing final day. By the close, Namibia were 130 for 2 in their second innings, and led by 21 runs after conceding a lead of 109.
Overnight, Uganda had been a shaky 90 for 4 in reply to Namibia's 165, but Nand Kishar top-scored with 74, and F Nsubuga contributed a vital 62 from No. 8 - an innings which included 10 hard-hit boundaries. Although they lost their last three wickets for two runs, Uganda's total of 274 looked to be a platform from which to force victory.
But Namibia knuckled down in their second innings, with Danny Keulder and JM van der Merwe wiping out the deficit with a stand of 111. But, just when Namibia were had half an eye on the close of play, both men fell within ten runs of each other. Uganda will need to wrap up the remaining eight wickets in quick time if they are to secure victory.
