A superb allround performance from Ian Stanger helped Scotland ease to a 36-run win against Canada, who slumped to their fourth consecutive defeat in the tournament. Stanger steadied the Scotland innings with a patient 84, allowing them reach 214. He then chipped in with three late wickets as Canada were bundled out for 178 in the 46th over. For Canada, Austin Codrington was the star performer with four wickets, but in the end, it wasn't enough to take his team to victory. Scotland play USA in their last match, and need a win to be assured of a place in the ICC Champions Trophy.
After starting the tournament with consecutive defeats, Namibia bounced back with their second win in two games, beating UAE by a handy 70-run margin in a low-scoring game. After being put in to bat, Namibia managed just 177, with Danie Keulder, their opener, top-scoring with a patient 64. UAE made a reasonable start, but then slumped from 46 for 1 to 67 for 6, and were never in the hunt thereafter.
A superb batting display by Netherlands helped them register their third win in the competition. Set a challenging target of 249, Netherlands reached there for the loss of just two wickets, and with 11 balls to spare. Daan van Bunge anchored the run-chase with an unbeaten 79, while Darron Reekers (67) and Bas Zuiderent (64*) provided the impetus to the innings. Earlier, Richard Staple (94) lifted USA to a respectable total after they had slumped to 20 for 3.
