Griqualand West duly wrapped up a 10-wicket win against Namibia in their three-day CSA Challenge match on Saturday.
Griquas dismissed Namibia for 258 in their second innings, leaving a modest victory target of only 67 runs and their openers Gihahn Cloete (29 not out) and Tumelo Bodibe (36 not out) soon rattled off the required runs.
Namibia started the final day at 213/6 and with a lead of only 23 runs, survival was their only concern.
Their main hope lay with captain Craig Williams who started the day on 87 not out, but when Willem Groenewald was dismissed for 2, the slide started.
Williams was unlucky not to reach his century when he was caught behind of a lifter by Alan Kruger for 95 runs, while Tobie Verwey did not last long before he was trapped LBW for a duck.
Gerhard Lotter and Louis Klazinga added a late flourish with some lusty hitting as they added 32 runs for the final wicket before Lotter was out LBW for 19 to Jandre Coetzee.
Klazinga was not out on 13 as the whole team was back in the hut for 258 runs.
Alan Kruger was Griquas’ best bowler taking 4/43 off 17 overs, while Jandre Coetzee and Reginald Modise each took two wickets.
