Scorecard

Namibia completed a three-wicket win over Uganda to set up a showdown with Kenya to find out who will top the group.

Namibia were put on course for their victory by an opening partnership of 88 between JB Burger and Stefan Swanepoel. Swanepoel made 55 at a run-a-ball and JB Burger anchored the innings with his 118-ball 67 to allow the middle-order to play their shots.

The main charge was led by Deon Kotze, the captain, who made 50 from 48 balls and Gerrie Snyman who hit a rapid 31 from 20 deliveries. These two ensured the target was always within their grasp despite the best efforts of Kenneth Kamyuka who took 4 for 41.

Uganda had done well to set a target as high as 242 after they had resumed on 60 for 5. Some spritied performances from the lower-order boosted their total. Junior Kwebiha was the top-scorer with 39 but Namibia were too strong.
