Namibia 276 and 336 (Baard 85, Williams 65) lead Netherlands 293 (Cooper 83, Rippon 65, Viljoen 4-68) by 319 runs

Second innings half-centuries by Stephan Baard and Craig Williams helped Namibia post a strong 336 after conceding a narrow lead of 17 runs against Netherlands in Windhoek, setting up a target of 320 runs on the last day. Namibia picked up the last Netherlands batsman in the fourth over of the morning and made slow progress to 2 for 56 in the 21st over. But Baard and Williams added 128 for the third wicket in less than 28 overs to help build the lead. Both were out in quick succession and Netherlands seemed to be taking control when they added another wicket with the lead still less than 200. But handy lower-order contributions from Namibian batsmen not only added frustrating runs, but they did so at a good rate, setting up a challenging total by the time they were bowled out towards the end of the day.
