Scotland draw with Namibia
GEORGE Munsey last night stroked a maiden first-class century as Scotland’s rain-ravaged I-Cup clash with Namibia petered out as a tame draw.
Two full days had been lost to the weather and a further session was wiped-out yesterday morning before play got underway after lunch at Ayr.
Namibia declared their first innings on the 403-7 they had made on Tuesday before Munsey and Kyle Coetzer launched the Scottish reply.
Coetzer led the way, hitting five boundaries, before falling for 25.
However, Munsey, making his first-class debut, and Calum MacLeod embarked on a brilliant stand of 186 to ensure there would be no collapse.
Watsonians star Munsey was slow at first but opened out with some blistering shots including sixteen boundaries.
MacLeod also found his touch and looked set for a three-figure score before being stumped for 80.
However, Munsey made no mistakes and reached the century landmark with a single before the Scots closed on 223-2.
The left-hander faced 190 deliveries.
Yesterday’s draw means Scotland’s hopes of overhauling I-Cup leaders Afghanistan are over.
Coetzer’s men face Namibia again tomorrow (Sun) in the first of two crucial World Cricket League fixtures.
