Trent Johnston411924.75141110
2.2 to R van Schoor, that has got to be close, that looks straight enough, front foot planted across around middle stump, fails to get the bat in front of pad in time, misses the good length ball, which crashes into the pad, given right away, Johnston roars. 10/1
4.3 to LP van der Westhuizen, they have got the big wicket, well-directed short ball from wide of the crease and into the body, he is not in a great position to pull, and ends up looping it up tamely to midwicket. 19/2
Boyd Rankin401714.25131000
12.3 to G Snyman, and yet another batsman goes to a mistimed aggressive stroke, tries to a pull a short ball that hurries on to him, Dockrell takes the top-edge running across from mid off. 50/4
Max Sorensen42822.00170000
7.1 to CG Williams, Porterfield takes a brilliant catch, Williams looking to break free, but ended up swinging wildly at a wide and full delivery outside off, he was looking to go much straighter down the ground, but only sliced it high on the off side, Porterfield kept his eyes on it, ran across at extra cover and held on to the steepler even as he tumbled down. 25/3
15.3 to SF Burger, they keep finding the fielders with precision, mistimed pull again, that shot has been the downfall of Namibia today, sails tamely and settles into the hands of long on. 60/6
Kevin O'Brien402807.00123120
Paul Stirling402015.00100100
14.4 to NRP Scholtz, slog-sweep picks out the man at deep square leg, tries to lunge forward and drag the full delivery from outside off, ends up looping it straight to Joyce in the deep. 59/5

4.2 to WTS Porterfield, he is gone this time, Namibia have something to smile about, Porterfield has flicked in the air towards midwicket who has gone down to his left to hold on to a very sharp chance. 41/1
