Chamika Karunaratne401714.25120010
14.3 to D Wiese, A big blow for Namibia. A length ball around off, jags back in sharply to hit the batter on the pads. Beaten both by pace and movement as he looked to bring his bat down. A huge appeal and the umpire took some time before raising his finger. He decides not to review it. Replays show it would have hit the top of the middle stump, umpire's call. So that would have stayed out. 79/5
Dushmantha Chameera401914.75111010
18.3 to R Trumpelmann, that's some catch from Shanaka. Another short one hurled at Trumpelmann. He was late on the pull and this time the ball lobbed just over and to the right of the bowler. But Shanaka ran from extra cover with an outstretched right hand and took it just above the ground and finished with the slide. 93/8
Maheesh Theekshana402536.25120220
2.1 to SJ Baard, he strikes first ball, some start to his World Cup! Length ball on off stump and Baard goes down the ground first ball but doesn't connect well at all, and a tumbling mid-off gets under it just in time to push with both hands. 10/1
5.4 to ZE Green, falls this time, skies this one to mid-on! Pitched up a little bit in the slot, Green lofts it high down the ground but only for a sitter to mid-on. 29/2
15.4 to JN Frylinck, bowled 'im. Third wicket for Theekshana. A length ball around middle and spinning away. Frylinck went for the sweep but made no connection. 84/6
Lahiru Kumara3.30922.57120000
12.2 to MG Erasmus, length ball around off, Erasmus goes for the slog but fails to middle it. Hasaranga waits at long-on with his fingers pointing skywards and lets the ball settle into his hands. 68/3
19.1 to HN Ya France, an excellent yorker. Right up there at the base of the middle stump. Ya France looked to jam his bat at it but couldn't make the connection. Namibia could be all out here. 96/9
Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva402426.00112001
13.3 to CG Williams, given lbw but Williams decides to review this. A googly from Hasaranga, fuller around off. Williams went for the reverse sweep but failed to connect and was hit right in front. And the ball-tracking confirms it would have hit the middle stump, three-fourth of the way up. 73/4
17.3 to JN Loftie-Eaton, Given lbw. A length ball in the line of the stumps, the batter went for the reverse sweep but missed and it hit him on the front pad. Pitched in line, no bat involved and it would have just clipped the off stump. Umpire's call there, which was out. Hasaranga has his second. 90/7

Ruben Trumpelmann302719.0032100
1.5 to MDKJ Perera, the slower one does it, Kusal takes the aerial route again and finds mid-off! Slow and full on off, Kusal lofts it just wide of mid-off but a diving Smit to his right grabs it with both hands just before landing and breaks the opening stand. 14/1
Bernard Scholtz301615.3390110
2.6 to P Nissanka, another appeal for lbw, the umpire gives it out and a wincing Nissanka looks at Chandimal before taking the review. I have a feeling it struck him outside off. Nissanka went back and across for the length ball almost heading towards off stump, struck almost in front, we'll confirm that. Ball-tracking says impact in line and crashing into the stumps. Another one down!. 18/2
JJ Smit10717.0040100
5.1 to LD Chandimal, he's struck first ball, Namibia have their third! With the angle well outside off on length, Chandimal has been scratchy tonight and he wants to cut it away with hard hands, but only gets a feather-like edge to the keeper. Are Namibia pumped or what. 26/3
