Scorecard

Namibia romped to an impressive and easy win over Canada on the final day of their Intercontinental Cup match at Windhoek.

Gerrie Snyman continued his fine form to pick up another three wickets, adding to his 4 for 63 in the first innings, as Canada slumped without a trace. Umar Bhatti was first to go, bowled by Snyman for a second-ball duck. His captain, Sunil Dhaniram, cracked four fours and a six in his last-gasp 31 and, together with Aftab Shamsudeen, edged Canada to 295.

This left Namibia a facile target of 102, though they lost Raymond van Schoor - caught behind for 2 - and Michael Durant, who was run out. Jan-Berrie Burger was in good touch, however, to guide them home and he received ferocious support from Snyman who belted three sixes and four fours in his unbeaten 38 from just 15 balls. Namibia reached their target in the 21st over.
