Scorecard and ball-by-ball

The second day of the Intercontinental Cup tie at Kampala ended with Namibia in a strong position after they grabbed five Ugandan wickets in the final session of a day which had been evenly balanced until tea.

Uganda started the day well, reducing Namibia to 66 for 6 before JB Burger led the recovery with a patient 59. Despite that, Uganda were in the box seat until Sarel Burger and Ian van Zyl combined to put on 52 for the last wicket and in doing so limit the first innings lead to 30.

When Uganda batted again, the two Burgers then combined to rip through the top order, and by the close they led by only 91 runs.
