Namibia 264 for 7 (Van Schoor 110, Burger 71, Van der Gugten 5-61) v Netherlands

A century from wicketkeeper Raymond van Schoor and a fifty from captain Sarel Burger helped Namibia recover to 264 for 7 on the first day of their ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Netherlands in Windhoek.

Put in to bat, Namibia were a precarious 53 for 4 after fast bowler Timm van der Gugten picked up three early wickets. Van Schoor and Burger then shared a 163-run partnership to revive the Namibia innings. The pair took their time settling down and consolidated the innings, their partnership coming off 336 balls.

Fast bowler Mudassar Bukhari broke the stand, dismissing Burger for 71. Van Schoor brought up his hundred in 173 balls and was dismissed by van der Gugten for 110, with the score at 240 for 6. His innings included 11 fours.

Van der Gugten, who also plays for New South Wales and Tasmania on the Australian domestic circuit, picked up his first five-wicket haul to finish with career-best figures of 5 for 61 off 26 overs.
