After a big win in the three-day game, Namibia would have been hoping to do the double over Western Province by beating them in today's one-day game at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek.

But it wasn't to be as Western Province picked themselves up, dusted themselves down and dished out a thrashing of their own.

Western Province won the toss and put Namibia in to bat. Unlike the three-day game, when their bowlers got on top of the home side, they stayed on top and bowled them out for just 145 in 29 overs. Shadley van Schalkwyk was the pick of the bowlers with 5/30, his best performance in List A cricket. Only Sarel Burger showed any resistance for Namibia, scoring 63.

Western Province then cruised to a win by seven wickets with 13 overs to spare. Namibia seemed to almost give up as the visitors neared their target, instead trying out several bowlers, with nine in all getting to turn their arm over.

Namibia will of course be disappointed with the defeat today, but the three-day game was the most important one as they look to prepare for the Intercontinental Cup final against Ireland in 11 days time. They'll have another three-day game, against North West in Potchefstroom, starting on Thursday before then, along with a one-day game against the same opponents next Sunday.
