View dismissal LP van der Westhuizen c White b Johnston 14 12 1 1 116.66
4.3 they have got the big wicket, well-directed short ball from wide of the crease and into the body, he is not in a great position to pull, and ends up looping it up tamely to midwicket 19/2
View dismissal R van Schoor lbw b Johnston 1 5 0 0 20.00
2.2 that has got to be close, that looks straight enough, front foot planted across around middle stump, fails to get the bat in front of pad in time, misses the good length ball, which crashes into the pad, given right away, Johnston roars 10/1
View dismissal G Snyman c Dockrell b Rankin 17 39 1 0 43.58
12.3 and yet another batsman goes to a mistimed aggressive stroke, tries to a pull a short ball that hurries on to him, Dockrell takes the top-edge running across from mid off 50/4
View dismissal CG Williams c Porterfield b Sorensen 3 6 0 0 50.00
7.1 Porterfield takes a brilliant catch, Williams looking to break free, but ended up swinging wildly at a wide and full delivery outside off, he was looking to go much straighter down the ground, but only sliced it high on the off side, Porterfield kept his eyes on it, ran across at extra cover and held on to the steepler even as he tumbled down 25/3
View dismissal SF Burger* c Joyce b Sorensen 20 27 2 0 74.07
15.3 they keep finding the fielders with precision, mistimed pull again, that shot has been the downfall of Namibia today, sails tamely and settles into the hands of long on 60/6
View dismissal NRP Scholtz c Joyce b Stirling 1 4 0 0 25.00
14.4 slog-sweep picks out the man at deep square leg, tries to lunge forward and drag the full delivery from outside off, ends up looping it straight to Joyce in the deep 59/5
