Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Michael van Lingen, 1.2 ov), 2-16 (Divan la Cock, 2.6 ov), 3-35 (Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton, 4.5 ov), 4-76 (Gerhard Erasmus, 11.5 ov), 5-91 (Stephan Baard, 13.6 ov), 6-93 (David Wiese, 14.2 ov), 7-163 (Jan Frylinck, 19.6 ov)
14.2 to D Wiese, Big appeal for caught behind, and the finger goes up! Batter seems to have a discussion with the non-striker and eventually goes for the review. And ultra edge shows a healthy spike as the ball passes the bat, review lost, and that's the big wicket of David Wiese too.. 93/6
1.2 to M van Lingen, Massive top-edge and Chameera strikes second ball on return! Short of a good length on middle and leg, van Lingen looks for a pull, but the ball is not short enough. He gets a top-edge with the ball going to deep third, who takes a comfortable catch.. 6/1
2.6 to D la Cock, Leading edge and LA Cock departs! On a length, not a lot of shape but the batter is through the shot early. Closes the face of the bat just a touch as the ball catches the leading edge to balloon straight up. Shanaka stationed at mid-on takes a nice, easy catch and Sri Lanka are making inroads early.. 16/2
13.6 to SJ Baard, Great catch at deep backward square leg! It's a full toss, almost a waist high no-ball and Baard looks to whip this high towards deep backward square leg. Dhananjaya however does well to run around, and take a running catch to his right with the sun bearing down on his face.. 91/5
4.5 to JN Loftie-Eaton, WHAT A CATCH! Take a bow, Kusal Mendis! Slower off-cutter outside off, he looks for a drive on the up but is deceived by the slowness of it. The ball catches his outside edge and it seems will go past the keeper. But Mendis dives full-length to his left, almost behind him and just about catches it.. 35/3
11.5 to MG Erasmus, But this time he's chanced his arm one too many times! This was a gimme from Hasaranga, the short googly, but Erasmus is almost too eager to go at this and swings hard. Only manages a top edge straight to deep midwicket running in. A good partnership comes to an end.. 76/4

Fall of wickets: 1-12 (Kusal Mendis, 1.4 ov), 2-21 (Pathum Nissanka, 3.2 ov), 3-21 (Danushka Gunathilaka, 3.3 ov), 4-40 (Dhananjaya de Silva, 6.3 ov), 5-74 (Bhanuka Rajapaksa, 10.3 ov), 6-80 (Wanindu Hasaranga, 12.3 ov), 7-88 (Dasun Shanaka, 13.6 ov), 8-88 (Pramod Madushan, 14.2 ov), 9-92 (Chamika Karunaratne, 15.2 ov), 10-108 (Dushmantha Chameera, 18.6 ov)
1.4 to BKG Mendis, Straight up and Mendis falls early! Wiese brings his experience into play and gets his side that crucial wicket. Short of a length, Mendis' eyes light up as he gets about to play the pull. But that hurried onto him, and he could only get a top-edge with the ball ballooning up for the keeper to complete a comfortable catch. Wiese is elated.. 12/1
18.6 to PVD Chameera, And that's that! Chameera looks to swing this over deep midwicket but only finds the man in the deep. What a win for Namibia, as they secure a 55-run win!. 108/10
10.3 to PBB Rajapaksa, And Bhanuka is holes out at long on! The drinks break has brought about the breakthrough as it so often does, as Bhanuka comes down the track looks to get under this to go high and long. He only gets the height though, as La Cock completes a straightforward take.. 74/5
12.3 to PW Hasaranga, Top edge and taken brilliantly at deep midwicket! Another one bites the dust, and this time it's Hasaranga, who looks to slog sweep this over deep midwicket but only gets a high top edge. Loftie-Eaton runs in from the ropes and holds on to an excellent diving take. Sri Lanka folding fast here.. 80/6
3.2 to P Nissanka, Got'em! Length ball on off, he looks to clear mid-on but does not time it at all. Miscues it straight to Smit at mid-on and now these are trouble times for Sri Lanka. Nissanka departs.. 21/2
3.3 to MD Gunathilaka, TWO IN TWO! Upset brewing? On a length tailing just a touch away from Gunathilaka, who opens the face of his blade but can get only a tickle to the keeper. The Namibians are ecstatic and why not. Gunathilaka comes and goes.. 21/3
15.2 to C Karunaratne, And now it's surely over! Chamika comes down the track to this back of a length ball and swings wildly. Ends up in a top edge down to long off running in. What a performance this has been from Namibia!. 92/9
6.3 to DM de Silva, Soft, soft dismissal and Frylinck now strikes! Nonchalant length ball on the pads that he could have worked anywhere. Instead, he flicks it straight into the hands of Shikongo, who can do no wrong today, at backward square leg and pouches it. SL in trouble.. 40/4
13.6 to MD Shanaka, And the captain goes! Is that the final nail in the coffin of Sri Lanka? This was a length ball on and Shanaka looks to go big, but only manages a top edge straight up. The keeper calls for it, and completes an excellent catch diving forward.. 88/7
