Capricorn Eagles beat Uganda.

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.

It was a day to forget for the Capricorn Eagles players as their batting did not go according to plan.

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

This can, however, only be achieved if the country's facilities are upgraded timely as per ICC standards.

This was explained by ICC Chairperson Greg Barclay during his recent visit to Namibia.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced in 2021 that Namibia will co-host the ICC Men's World Cup in 2027, together with neighbouring South Africa and Zimbabwe.
