WINDHOEK, April 7 (Xinhua) -- Namibia continued their dominance against visiting Uganda in the ongoing cricket series with a 99-run win in Windhoek on Wednesday.

Namibia batted first posting an unassailable total of 301 runs for seven wickets while Uganda could only manage a poultry 203 for seven wickets in their chase falling way short of the target.

The Namibian batting lineup put up a solid performance while their bowling remained effective and disciplined throughout the session restricting the visitors from any dominance.

Uganda's middle-order batsman Ronak Patel, however, gave his charges some resilience scoring the only century of the match while Namibia had two half-centuries from JJ Smit with 81 and Michael van Lingen with 56.

Namibia's Rubben Trmpelmann was the peak of the bowlers with a five-wicket haul. Enditem
