Namibia 320 for 4 (Steenkamp 87, Williams 78*, Burger 68) trail Uganda 329 (Sematimba 106, Musoke 59, Williams 5-90) by nine runs
Half-centuries from Ewaid Steenkamp, Craig Williams and Sarel Burger took Namibia to 320 for 4 on the second day of their ICC Intercontinental Shield match against Uganda in Windhoek.
Steenkamp and Raymond Van Schoor got Namibia off to a flying start, putting on 55 for the first wicket at a run-a-ball before Van Schoor was bowled by Emmanuel Isaneez for 31 off just 32 deliveries. Steenkamp and Burger then made sure the early momentum would not be squandered with a 124-run partnership. Steenkamp's 87 came off 120 deliveries and contained 14 fours, while Burger played the anchor role, taking 161 balls for his 68, with nine fours.
Williams continued to build on the foundation provided by the top three, finishing the day unbeaten on 78 from 193 deliveries, a day after picking up five wickets.
Uganda got through 109 overs in the day, with offspinner Frank Nsubuga bearing the brunt of the load, bowling 35 overs and finishing with figures of 1 for 69.
Wicketkeeper Lawrence Sematimba's maiden first-class hundred lifted Uganda to a first-innings score of 329 on the first day.
