Namibia ease home despite Romaine

Namibia 268 for 6 (S Burger 91, Snyman 56) beat Bermuda 211 (Romaine 100, van der Westhuizen 3-44) by 65 runs (D/L)
Scorecard

Namibia comfortably saw off Bermuda in their one-day match, winning by 65 runs at Windhoek although a defiant 100 from 75 balls by Irving Romaine narrowed the margin after the visitors slumped to 86 for 8.

Namibia's 268 for 6 was anchored by Sarel Burger's 91 and boosted by Gerrie Snyman's 56. Burger and Raymond van Schoor set the platform with a second-wicket stand of 71 in 14 overs before Burger added a further 93 with Snyman for the fourth wicket. Snyman hit two sixes in his 64-ball innings until he fell to Chris Foggo and Burger missed out on a century when he was bowled by Justin Pitcher.

The innings was given late impetus by Nicholas Scholtz who clubbed 41 off 34 balls before rain ended Namibia's innings nine balls short of the full fifty overs and led to a minor readjustment of Bermuda's target.

The trend for the chase was set with the second ball of the innings as Foggo was caught behind and when David Hemp, Bermuda's best batsman, also fell to Christoffel Viljoen it was always unlikely they would make an impression.

Namibia chipped away with regular wickets and left-arm spinner Louis van der Westhuizen claimed three as Bermuda slumped to 86 for 8. However, while the match was dead and buried, Romaine didn't go down without a real fight as he swung seven sixes in his barnstorming innings at No.9. He added 82 for the final with Stefan Kelly and put his top-order colleagues to shame.
