It was an easy task for the hosts Namibia to get over the finishing line in the 1st T20I, as they won by 7 wickets. Merwe Erasmus was the player of the match for his well-made 62* from 36 balls. They are 1-0 up in the series with 2 back-to-back matches to be played on Monday.
Not getting enough runs on the board made Uganda lose the 1st T20I to Namibia. Now they are in a must-win situation to level the series 1-1. Their batting unit will have to fire if they were to win the match and level the series.
