The second ODD game between Namibia Eagles and South Africa Emerging Players takes place at the Wanderers Cricket Ground in Windhoek on Thursday.
Namibia were outstanding with the ball in the first ODD as they restricted South Africa Emerging Players to just 244 runs. In response, the hosts were under some pressure as they were reduced to 67/3 at one stage. But skipper Merwe Gerhard Erasmus led from the front and smashed a fine hundred to take Namibia home.
South Africa Emerging Players’ batting unit has failed to fire in the last couple of games. They will be desperate to win the second ODD to keep the three-match series alive.
