ICC Under-19 World Cup Qualifier, 2011 / Commentary

Good morning and welcome to our coverage of the u-19 world cup qualifiers. Todays games are the last ones in the tournament. My name is Justin Smyth and im going to be bringing you ball by ball coverage of todays game between Namibia and Kenya. Scotland, Ireland and Nepal have already qualified for the main tournament in Austrailia. Which means that we still have three places up for grabs! Afganistan, USA, PNG, Canada and Namibia are the teams who can still qualify. Kenya and Vanuatu are the only teams eliminated so far. Namibia will feel they have a great chance of winning today with Afganistan playing Canada andhome nation Ireland wanting to finish on a high against PNG. At the ens of the day it might come down to net runrate. Namibia's is better then the three teams above them.

The weather since we have come to Northern Ireland has been very unsettled. I am Pleased to announce that here at the cricket ground here at Drummond there is lots of blue sky around at the minute. There is a very strong breeze coming down from the hills so the clouds are flying through quickly. We should be getting away on time this morning so the toss should be in about 10 minutes.

10.15 Namibia have won the toss and will bat first. They probably feel that if they can set a high total, Kenya will not get to it. For Namibia today its all about the win

Match State: Innings Break

well some great hitting in the last over got Namibia up to 314. There was a wobble in the middle of the innings when Baard and Erasmus bot got run out. Lotter with 35 off of 18 balls and Coombe's 31 off of 17 have surely put the game beyond Kenya's reach. Stefan Baard was the best of the batsmen on 89 and Erasmus played very well for his fifty. Stefan Baard was the best of the batsmen on 89 and Erasmus played very well for his fifty. It was a very lackluster performace from Kenya in the field and the dropped catches have really mounted up. We should be starting again at 2.45pm when Kenya will be chasing 315 to win. Please join me then.
