Namibia have ensured that they will be top of the table when the first tri-series of CWC League Two concludes on Sunday after beating the Netherlands in a low scoring game today in Nepal.

After a delayed start and a reduction to 45 overs, Namibia were unsurprisingly put into bat iafter Dutch captain Scott Edwards won the toss. They lost Niko Davin for a duck in their first over, though his opening partner Malan Kruger - making his ODI debut - scored 39 before he was bowled by Aryan Dutt.

Contributions further down the order came from Jan Frylinck (34) and Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton (49) before Vivian Kingma bowled Jack Brassell to finish of the batting line-up with Namibia having scored 203. Kingma was the pick of the bowlers with 3-19.

The Netherlands alos lost an opener for a duck in the first over as Michael Levitt was dismissed lbw by Ruben Trumpelmann, with fellow opener Max O'Dowd going on to score 41 before Jan Frylinck took a catch off his own bowling.

Noah Croes scored an unbeaten 46 later in the innings, but it wasn't enough as the Dutch were bowled out for 179, losing by 24 runs. Gerhard Erasmus and Jan Frylinck both took three wickets.

This leg of World Cup League 2 concludes on Sunday with a final match between hosts Nepal and the Netherlands. Namibia's time in Nepal isn't over though as they will stay in the country for a T20I tri-series against the same opponents that gets underway on Tuesday.
