Ruben Trumpelmann's three wickets and Jan Frylinck's two-fer helped Namibia keep Scotland to 109/8 in their Super 12 T20 World Cup clash in Abu Dhabi on Wednesday.
Pushed into batting first, Namibia had a fantastic start as George Munsey chopped on his stumps off Trumpelmann on the first ball of the innings. Trumpelmann then made back-to-back strikes on the fourth and fifth ball of the innings. While Calum MacLeod nicked one behind, stand-in captain Richie Berrington was trapped lbw to a full in-swinger.

Scotland's misery continued as David Wiese struck in the final over of powerplay, trapping Craig Wallace in front of the stumps. Michael Leask (44 of 27 balls) led the recovery route, setting a 39-run stand off 34 balls with Matthew Cross (19) followed by Chris Greaves (25) taking Scotland past the 100-run mark.
Though Greaves fell on the final over of the innings, he did the job for his side in getting to three-figures.
