The visiting British Combined Services cricket team suffered a comprehensive eight-wicket defeat to a Namibian Invitation team in Windhoek on Monday. The visitors were under pressure from the start, losing their opening batsmen early on. Upton was run out to a fine throw by Gerhard Rudolph, while captain Fulton was caught behind off the bowling of Louis Klazinga.
From then on wickets fell regularly as only three batsmen could reach double figures.
Lower order batsman Sanneck top scored with 37, as the visitors were all out for only 138 runs.
Defending champions Unam had to pull out all the stops to beat Windhoek Old Boys (WOB) 5-4 in their opening Indoor Hockey match of the season on Saturday. In an evenly matched first half, all the goals came from set pieces. Siabonga Martins gave Unam an early lead from a short corner but Dirk Basson pulled one back for WOB from a short corner.
Just before the break Martins once again scored from a short corner to give Unam a 2-1 lead at halftime.
