Namibia 156 (van Schoor 36, Waiswa 3-15) beat Uganda 94 (Kyobe 36, Klazinga 4-36, van der Westhuizen 3-20) by 62 runs
Namibia steamrolled Uganda in a low-scoring encounter in the first of three List A games in the capital Windhoek. A four wicket-haul from seamer Louis Klazinga and left-arm spinner Louis van der Westhuizen's three-for shut out Uganda from the game after the hosts had been bowled out for 156.
Only two batsmen in Uganda's chase - Arthur Kyobe and Frank Nsubuga - reached double-digits as the result failed to measure up to Namibia's determined effort to compensate for their shortcomings with the bat. The only ray of hope in the Uganda innings was a second-wicket stand of 30 but the innings derailed from there on, as Namibia captured the remaining nine wickets for just 53. Klazinga uprooted the top order and van der Westhuizen mopped up the tail to knock out Uganda for 94.
Opener and wicketkeeper Raymond van Schoor top scored for Namibia with a fluent 36 and even after his dismissal, with the score on 43, there were important contributions from Wian van Vuuren (26) and Gert Lotter (32) in the middle order and Christi Viljoen (23) further down that gave the Namibia bowlers a fighting target to defend. For Uganda, seamer Charles Waiswa starred with three wickets.
