The 3-Day Challenge CSA match between Namibia and South Western Districts petered out into a draw on Saturday.
The visitors were however always in control and had it not been for a rain disruption, they might well have won the match.
SWD scored 352 in their first innings and then dismissed Namibia for 164. Forced to follow on, Namibia reached 183/4 when the match was called off for a draw.
Christiaan Jonker was SWD’s first innings hero, scoring 190 off 196 runs (13 x 4, 9 x 6), although he was dropped twice - first on 10 and then on 136.
African Stars breathed new life into their league campaign when they beat United Stars 1-0 at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Saturday.
Rudi Louw scored the winning goal after only 11m when he ran onto a defense-splitting pass by Milton Chapo to tuck the ball past United Stars’ keeper Bartlett Thikerete into the right hand corner of the net.
The result sees Stars moving to within six points of log leaders Black Africa, who have a game in hand after their match against Eleven Arrows was postponed.
Tyson Ushona’s upcoming WBO Inter Continental title fight against Jan Zaveck of Slovenia on March 24 was launched to much fanfare in Maribor, Slovenia on Friday afternoon.

Zaveck is a former IBF welterweight champion and a national hero in Slovenia. He has a formidable professional record of 31 wins, 18 by KO, and only 2 defeats, while he has beaten highly rated boxers like Isaac Hlatshwayo of South Africa and Rafael Jackiewicz of Poland.

Bjorn Recktenwald however gave Hoffenheim victory with a goal in the final 10m of the game.
