Namibia gave the Australians something of a scare today in Kimberley, but Australia still round out winners in a short run chase at the Men's Under-19 World Cup.

Australia captain Hugh Weibgen won the toss at the Diamond Oval and chose to bowl first. It proved to be the correct decision as Namibia were bundled out for just 91 with only three batters reaching double figures.

Zacheo van Vuuren - son of Rudi van Vuuren who played for Namibia in both the 2003 men's Cricket and Rugby Union world cups - top scored for Namibia with 29, whilst Callum Vidler and Tom Straker were the leading bowlers for Australia, taking 4-17 and 3-16 respectively.

Hugh Weibgen top scored for Australia with an unbeaten 39, but their batting line-up otherwise looked rather brittle, as they lost six wickets, three of them to Jack Brassell. Despite that scare, Australia still chased down their target in 19.5 overs to win by four wickets.

Namibia are next in action on Wednesday when they take on Sri Lanka, whilst Australia's next opponents will be Zimbabwe on Thursday.
