Craig Williams scored his tenth first-class century.
Craig Williams was the star of the show in a dominant batting performance as Namibia gained the upper hand in their ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Kenya in Windhoek.

Namibia closed the second day on 343-4 after wrapping up Kenya's first innings for 304 inside four overs of the morning session.

Williams struck 140 in the reply, his 10th first-class century and just four short of his highest score, in a powerful display that included 16 fours and three sixes in a 194-ball knock.

Captain Sarel Burger (85) helped the right-hander add 192 for the third wicket and Gerrie Snyman then maintained the momentum in the final hour with 53 not out off 52 balls.

Nelson Odhiambo was Kenya's most successful bowler with 2-57 but it was a day of struggle for their bowlers.

Namibia's opening bowlers quickly wrapped up the Kenya innings at the start of the day, picking up the last three wickets for just seven runs.

Louis Klazinga and Christi Viljoen shared the wickets to finish with 3-56 and 4-107 respectively.

Namibia enter day three leading by 39 runs and expecting to press home their advantage.
