Andrew White slammed an unbeaten 123 to help Ireland take a 54 run lead in the ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Namibia on the second day of the four-day contest.

At the Civil Service Cricket Club, Stormont, Ireland resumed at its overnight score of 75 for four. But White held the innings together very well.

White first shared a 69 run sixth wicket stand with John Mooney (44: 58b, 6x4). Later, George Dockrell (53: 96b, 8x4) batted resolutely with White to help Ireland take a lead.

Dockrell-White stand for the eighth wicket was worth 100 runs.

White finally ended unbeaten on 123 off 213 balls with thirteen boundaries. Namibia's chief wicket-takers were Louis Klazinga (2-58), Christi Viljoen (5-87) and Stephen Baard (2-32). Ireland ended at 298 in 83.5 overs.

Namibia began wiping off the lead with Viljoen following his five wicket haul with a brisk unbeaten knock of 48. Namibia ended the day at 58 for one when rain interrupted play and forced an early closure.
