UAE remained top of the table with a superb chase to beat Namibia by five wickets at the Wanderers, chasing down 359 inside 46 overs. That Namibia even managed to set UAE such a huge total was due to Gerry Snyman's blitzkrieg 196 from a mere 113 balls, in which he smacked 17 sixes and seven fours. Arshad Ali got UAE's chase off to a solid start with 57 from 49, but the real injection of pace came from Saqib Ali (91 from 59) and Khurram Khan, whose fine form continued with 89 from 79.
After their two-wicket win over Namibia yesterday, Oman recorded a six-wicket victory over Denmark. Hemal Mehta took 3 for 11 from six overs while Syed Ali grabbed 2 for 11 - both bowlers making up for the wayward efforts of Oman's opening attack of Hemin Desai and Farhan Khan. Freddie Klokker continued his good form with 45 from 46 and Carsten Pedersen made a brisk 37, but there was little else and Oman were set 169 to win. Desai made up for his expensive bowling with 47 from 25 balls, and although Denmark took four wickets, Oman rattled off the runs inside 30 overs.
