The second T20 match between Namibia Eagles and South Africa Emerging Players will take place at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek on Saturday.
In the first match, Namibia Eagles scored 167-5 while batting first. In response, South Africa Emerging Players chased down the target with five wickets and eight balls to spare.
Each of Namibia's top five batsmen got off to a decent start in the first game, but only Craig Williams went past the 50-run mark. Meanwhile, although their bowling was also solid for most of the game, they lost the plot at the death.
On the other hand, most of the South African bowlers were economical and bowled well. However, their top-order flopped as they lost three wickets in the powerplay overs. But Sinethemba Qeshile, Jason Smith, and Delano Potgieter helped South Africa Emerging Players power their way to a five-wicket win.
