Namibia captain Sarel Burger ensured his side made it two wins out of two over Kenya at the Windhoek High School. Having opted to bat first, Kenya put on a much improved batting display, led by Collins Obuya, to post 170 for 5. But Burger provided the finishing kick to Nambia's innings to take his side home with five wickets and three balls to spare.

Kenya lost opener Alex Obanda in the third over but Obuya was in a determined mood, smashing five sixes and three fours in a 53-ball 79. He was well supported by Ragheb Aga, who made 45 from 32, as the pair added 112 for the fourth wicket at 9.60 runs an over. Both men lost their wickets in the final over, but had done enough to see their side to a competitive total.

Louis van der Westhuizen and Raymond van Schoor gave the hosts an explosive start, racing to 57 from 5.2 overs before Westhuizen holed out off the bowling of left-arm spinner Hiren Varaiya, having made 27 from 13 balls. Van Schoor and Gerrie Snyman kept the scoreboard moving faster than the required rate, but Snyman's wicket with the score on 90 prompted a mini-collapse as Namibia lost 4 wickets for 31 runs. Having played the anchor role in the last game, Burger turned into the finisher this time, looting a quick 32 from 20 balls and sharing in a 50-run partnership with Gerhard Erasmus that took their side to victory.
