Nepalese bowler BK Das took 6 wickets in Namibia's first innings, but was unable to stop the African's leading Nepal by 129 runs at the half way mark in Windhoek. Despite Das' heroics, Namibia reached 272 before being bowled out, largely due to a patient 94 from captain DB Kotze, and a slightly more aggressive 60 to back him up from G Snyman. In reply, Nepal struggled to come to terms with the Namibian bowlers, all six chipping in with wickets. Nepal's highest scorer was PP Lohani on 34. Namibia bowled their visitors out for only 143 to take what looks like an unassailable lead into their second innings. With only one day left to play as the first was lost to rain, Namibia are now looking almost certain to progress through to the main round of the competition.
