In a dramatic change from the first game of the day, where just 171 runs were scored over both innings, Namibia chased 195 to beat Kenya in the second match at the Windhoek High School. Kenya chose to bat and lost Peter Kituku in the first over but captain Collins Obuya scored an unbeaten 100 off 63 balls. Obuya struck 10 fours and four sixes in his innings.
