2 (WINDHOEK) – Namibia completed a comfortable victory over Kenya in a final One-Day match at the United Cricket Club in Windhoek on Saturday.
The Namibian team chose to bowl first, and the Kenyans frustrated the host team as Namibian field workers dropped a few vital catches to the dismay of their team.
But the consistency of the bowlers eventually put enough pressure on the Kenyans, and the team was back in the stands with 187 runs in the 43rd over.
For Kenya, it was only their captain, Collins Obuya, who showed resistance in the middle order with 71 runs.
Namibia then answered with 188 runs for the loss of three wickets.
Namibia found themselves in seventh place on the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Cricket League Championship table at the end of the game, with Kenya now one spot above them.
