Namibia 272 and 239 for 6 dec (Snyman 78, L Burger 58) drew with Nepal 143 and 70 for 3
Namibia qualified for the next stage of the Intercontinental Cup after their play-off match against Nepal at Windhoek ended in a draw. Set an impossible target of 369 to win off 40 overs, Nepal ended on 70 for 3 and were left to rue the time lost to rain.
With a first-innings lead of 129, Namibia were briefly in a little bother at 88 for 4 before Louis Burger and Gerrie Snyman put the game beyond Nepal with a fifth-wicket stand of 76. Snyman smacked 78 off 62 balls, including four sixes, and Burger 58, also with four sixes, with the legbreaks of Raj Pradhan coming in for some punishment.
Nepal's second innings was little more than going through the motions, but AJ Burger struck twice to remove Paresh Lohani and Sharad Vesawkar.
