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. Kenya were going along at just over four an over till the eighth over, when Alex Obanda was dismissed. Rakep Patel came in and smashed seven sixes in his 73 off 31 balls. He and Obuya's unbeaten partnership was worth 160 in 12 overs, giving Kenya an imposing total.

Namibia, however, notched up their fourth straight win over Kenya, chasing the target down in just 18 overs. Craig Williams bettered Obuya's effort by smashing 125 off 60 balls including 10 fours and eight sixes. Elijah Otieno had given Kenya a couple of early wickets but Williams then took control and was helped by Raymond van Schoor's run-a-ball 33
