Namibia A and Ireland Wolves will meet in the fifth and final game of their five-game ODI series on Tuesday 5 April at Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek.
Namibia A, led by JJ Smit, have taken an unassailable 2-1 lead in the series. The hosts were at their best in game four of the series on Sunday 3 April. After being put into the loft first, Wolves were knocked out of the tournament with an underperforming score of 178 in 47.3 overs.
Gareth Delany hit 81 runs from 77 deliveries with the help of seven fours and four sixes, but he lacked support from the other end. Opening batter Murray Commins scored 30 points before Jan Frylinck was responsible for his wicket. Frylinck and Ruben Trumpelmann each took two wickets for Namibia A.
JJ Smit, Tangeni Lungameni and left arm spinner Bernard Scholtz each took a wicket for the home team. Namibia A got into trouble early in its chase after Stephan Baard and Craig Williams died cheaply. However, Captain Gerhard Erasmus and Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton stabilized the ship.
While Loftie-Eaton had 60 runs, Erasmus had the highest score, 66 out of 77. The duo played 96 runs for the third wicket to put Namibia A in the driver’s seat. In the end, Smit’s undefeated 17-ball 27 with four sixes took Namibia A across the finish line.
