WINDHOEK: The Namibian cricket team will face their Kenyan counterparts here on Saturday, and must prevent losing the last and final One-Day match after the Kenyans won their first One-Day match with six wickets.
It is a make-or-break game for Namibia to fence off two consecutive One-Day match losses.
On Thursday, the Kenyans won the toss and sent the Namibians in to bat, only for the host team to be back in the pavilion with a mere 129 runs on the scoreboard.
Namibia’s Raymond van Schoor scored the highest for his team, and added 22 runs from 44 deliveries to the team’s 129 runs.
Kenya needed less than 31 Overs to tally 132 runs, beating the hosts with six wickets with 115 balls remaining.
The Inter-continental Cricket Council (ICC) decided to move the Inter-continental Cup between the two nations from Mombasa, Kenya to Windhoek due to the insecurity in that East African country.
The match will commence at 10h00 at the United Sports Grounds in Windhoek.
