Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to bat first. Wesley Madhevere was good with his shot selection as he struck 23 off 12 balls before being dismissed by Bernard Scholtz. Post his dismissal, Sikandar Raza and Craig Ervine collected 69 runs for the 3rd wicket partnership. After Sikandar Raza got out in the 16th over, the run rate dipped and Zimbabwe couldn't really accelerate in the death overs.

For Namibia, Bernard Scholtz picked up 2 wickets, giving away just 19 runs in his spell of 4 overs.
During the chase, Namibia got off to a slow start and could not really capitalize on the field restrictions in powerplay overs. Craig Williams made 25 off 34 balls. Divan la Cock fought hard with his knock of 66 in 43 balls but got out at a wrong time. The middle order including Erasmus, Loftie-Eaton and Zane Green failed to get going and Namibia looked in all sorts of trouble. They needed 15 runs off the last over with David Wiese at the crease.
