Contrasting fifties from Wesley Barresi and Daan van Bunge helped the Netherlands win the second World Cricket League Championship fixture by just one wicket against Namibia. The two points from the win puts the visitors three points clear in the automatic qualification places for the 2015 World Cup, while Namibia can no longer make the top two.
The Netherlands avenged their ICC Intercontinental Cup defeat to Namibia at the weekend by beating them in the first of two World Cricket League Championship matches in Windhoek.
A century from Namibia's Craig Williams wasn't enough to help them recover from a poor start to their run chase as they were finally bowled out for 237 in pursuit of the visitors' 268 for nine. Timm van der Gugten transferred his form from the first-class fixture into limited-overs cricket and ended with three for 37.
