Afghanistan records five-wicket win over Namibia

Namibia sinks to second successive defeat against Afghanistan after 190-run loss on Friday

Afghanistan dominated Namibia, scoring a comfortable five-wicket victory, in Match 48 of the World Cricket League at Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek on Sunday (August 11).
 
This was Afghanistan’s second consecutive victory over the African nation, following a crushing 190-run win on Friday at the same venue.
 
After winning the toss and electing to bat, Namibia’s openers gave the team a solid start, putting up 51 runs in 8.4 overs, before Raymond van Schoor was trapped in front by Karim Sadiq. Following the setback, Stephen Baard, coming in at No. 3, continued the good work, top scoring with 67, hitting five boundaries and sending one over the fence. Xander Pitchers, the opener, who played a handy knock of 57, ably supported Baard.
 
However, to Namibia’s dismay, the top order’s excellent work was wasted as only Sarel Burger managed to reach double figures out of the remaining batsmen, and Namibia slipped from 101 for 1 to 193 all out. Hamid Hassan was the wrecker-in-chief for Afghanistan, returning figures of 4 for 32 in nine overs. 
 
Chasing the small total, Afghanistan got off to a flawless start, reaching 106 by the end of the 18th over, before losing opener Mohammad Shahzad. Following the loss of Nawroz Mangal in the very next over, Afghanistan suffered a minor scare, sliding to 163 for 5.
 
However, Mohammad Nabi, coming in at No. 6, continued his good work from the previous match, remaining unbeaten on 46 off just 23 balls, studded with two boundaries and four sixes. Nabi, along with Samiullah Shenwari, ensured that there were no more hiccups along the way to hand Afghanistan its second victory in as many matches.
