There was further consolation for Kenya as they recorded their second-consecutive win over Namibia in the Twenty20 series at the Wanderers Cricket Ground. Nehemiah Odhiambo led Kenya's chase of 135 with 42, setting up his team's four-wicket win. Hiren Varaiya, the Kenya left-arm spinner, was the most effective bowler, taking 4 for 21 to keep the hosts to a modest total. Raymond van Schoor was the top-scorer for Namibia with a run-a-ball 54. Three of Varaiya's victims were out bowled.
Namibia enjoyed an unassailable 5-0 lead in the eight-match series until they took their foot off the pedal on Thursday. The final match is set for Sunday.
