Namibia 230 for 6 (Williams 51, Haq 3-20) trail Scotland 350 (Flannigan 102, Coetzer 62, Viljoen 5-94) by 120 runs

Scotland's lower order came good on the second morning, steering their side to the 350-run mark, before offspinner Majid Haq troubled Namibia, reducing them to 230 for six in Windhoek.

Resuming on 268 for 7, Scotland pushed on to 350 courtesy double-digit contributions from their Nos 8 to 11. Wicketkeeper Simon Smith and No. 11 Gordon Goudie put on 47 for the tenth wicket, Goudie slamming his 31 off 27 balls, while Smith remained unbeaten on 35. Christi Viljoen picked up two wickets in the morning, to finish with a five-wicket haul

In reply, none of the Namibia batsmen could build on starts, with the top six all getting into double digits but not pushing on. The biggest contribution came from captain Craig Williams, who made 51 before succumbing to Haq. Haq picked up two more middle-order wickets in a very miserly spell - he conceded 20 runs from 22 overs - as Namibia went to stumps trailing by 120 with four wickets in hand.
