The Capricorn Eagles won the toss and chose to bat first but Uganda had other ideas as they kept taking wickets. At one point, the Namibian team members found themselves four wickets down for 47 runs.

Ugandan bowlers continued taking more wickets and restricted Namibia from putting up decent partnerships.

And as Uganda kept picking holes in the Capricorn Eagles' batting more wickets fell to leave the host at 94 all out.
