After their game against England was rained off, Scotland got a result today in their match against fellow associate member Namibia, and it was a positive one for the men in pink/purple/blue.

Namibia won the toss and Gerhard Erasmus chose to bat first, but losing JP Kotze for a duck in the first over probably wasn't part of his plan. The Namibian captain top scored for his team with 52 from 31 balls, but the only other score of note was Zane Green's 28.

Brad Wheal was the pick of Scotland's bowlers, taking 3-33 as Namibia scored 155-9 from their 20 overs.

Scotland struggled to get a significant partnership together at the start of their innings until Michael Leask came out to join captain Richie Berrington. The pair added 74 for the fifth wicket before Leask fell for 35, which he made from only 17 balls including four big sixes.

Berrington carried on and hit the winning runs with a huge six into the top deck of the Garfield Sobers pavillion that Sobers himself would have been proud of. He finished unbeaten on 45 from 35 balls as Scotland won by five wickets with nine balls to spare.

The result puts Scotland top of the group, for the time being at least, and they will now fly to Antigua for their next match, against Oman on Sunday afternoon. Namibia play next on Tuesday evening in Antigua when they come up against Australia for the first time in a senior international since their meeting at the 2003 ODI World Cup in South Africa.
