After suffering a harsh loss in the first encounter, Namibia has rallied back to score a 139-run win against the USA.

The Eagles had a great inning against USA, winning by 139 runs. Player of the match, JP Kotze reached his century in 88 balls and an impressive performance by the left-arm spinner, Walvis Bay born Zhivago Groenewald took five wickets.
Namibia 287-8 (49) JP Kotze 136, Jan Frylinck 60*, Jessy Singh 8-1-51-4 defeated USA 142 (37) Aaron Jones 44, Steven Taylor 27, Zhivago Groenewald 8-1-20-5) by 139 runs (revised target 282 from 47 overs)
Namibia has another two games remaining, both against Papua New Guinea. Trouncing the hosts has flicked on the switch for Namibia, and considering their next opponent is looking for the much-needed victory, they should head into the next two games with plenty of confidence.
