T20 World Cup results: Scotland beat Namibia to continue strong start

Written by on June 7, 2024

Scotland were slightly behind the game for much of the chase, with George Munsey and Michael Jones, who put on an opening stand of 90 against England, falling for seven and 26 respectively.

They were 73-4 when Matthew Cross was out lbw on the sweep to left-arm spinner Bernard Scholtz and the equation stretched to 78 needed from 48 balls as Namibia, who beat Oman in their opening game, turned the screw.

Berrington, having taken nine from his first 14 balls, sprung into life first by hoisting Tangeni Lungameni for six over mid-wicket and following with an elegant driven four but still the game was in the balance when two tight overs followed.

At that point Namibia turned to Wiese, their key man who had conceded only three from his previous two overs, but Leask hit a length ball over mid-wicket before powering a full toss in the same direction.

He had earlier taken 1-16 with his spin from two overs in an all-round bowling performance in which Namibia were reduced to 55-4 and then managed only 14 runs from the last 15 balls.

When Berrington hit the winning runs over long-on, The Proclaimers boomed around the famous Kensington Oval.

Were England to lose to Australia on Saturday and Scotland beat Oman a day later, Jos Buttler’s side could be left in a position of relying on net run-rate to pip the Scots and progress.
