Barras set target of 355 for Namibia

Day three began this morning at 9:30am with the openers Tony Ura and Vani Vagi Morea at the crease looking to extend the Barras lead.

But Namibia had other ideas and crushed the Barras hopes of pushing their lead past 400 by the end of play this afternoon.

Bernard Scholtz was the man responsible taking 6/65 off his 19 overs.

The slow left-arm orthodox bowler troubled the Barras with Scholtz claiming the wickets of big guns Lega Siaka (7), Assad Vala (6) and Mahuru Dai (8) who didn’t score past 10.
