All-round Van der Westhuizen stars for Namibia

Namibia 94 for 3 (van der Westhuizen 32) beat Kenya 93 (van der Westhuizen 3-19) by seven wickets

Namibia completed a 6-2 thrashing of Kenya with a convincing seven-wicket win in the final match of the Twenty20 series at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek.

Kenya chose to bat and folded for 93 in 18.1 overs, as only three of their batsmen got into double figures. Wicketkeeper Peter Kituku was their top scorer with 31. The Namibia bowlers shared the wickets around, but Louis van der Westhuizen had the best figures after he ran through the tail to finish with 3 for 19 in 3.1 overs.

Van der Westhuizen then powered the small chase, slamming 32 off 15 balls with four fours and two sixes, to take his side home with over five overs to spare. Captain Sarel Burger, who opened the innings, anchored the chase with an unbeaten 30, while Craig Williams also contributed with a rapid cameo.
