Namibia’s bowlers were outstanding as they bowled out Sri Lanka for 108 inside 19 overs. They registered a win by 55-run win to hand their net run rate a huge boost.

Netherlands, cruising in the run-chase in the powerplay, struggled as UAE fought back valiantly. At the end, Netherlands scored the winning runs with three wickets and one ball to spare.
