Canada 167 for 7 (Siddiqi 45*, Viljoen 5-46) & 274 lead Namibia 374 (Burger 135, Soraine 4-66) by 67 runs

Stout resistance from Namibia's lower order, followed by a five-for from Christi Viljoen, put them firmly in control at the end of day three against Canada in Windhoek.

Namibia had begun the day on 293 for 6, just 19 ahead of Canada. However, stands of 34 and 45 for the last two wickets helped them to a handy 100-run lead. Viljoen made good use of that lead, claiming the first five wickets before Canada were able to wipe out the deficit. Canada hardly recovered, going to stumps on 167 for 7 with a lead of only 67.
