Stirling to Opperman, SIX, that has been extremely well-timed, for a change, probably the best-timed shot of the game so far, he advances out, Stirling shortens it, but he still has enough momentum to lift it high over long on

19.1

O'Brien to Opperman, no run, slow bouncer on the stumps, he shapes up for the pull but it comes on lazily off the pitch and he cannot have a go at it

19.2

O'Brien to Opperman, no run, good delivery, follows him down leg with the yorker as he makes room

19.3

O'Brien to Opperman, FOUR, a charge down the pitch and a swing over the bowler, mid off and long on cannot cut it off, mid off slides but long on is in his way, ball wins

19.4

O'Brien to Opperman, 1 run, down to long on for one

19.6

O'Brien to Opperman, SIX, full toss outside off disappears for maximum over long on with a healthy swing, Namibia still finish well short of 100
