Namibian captain Bjorn Kotze led Namibiaâ??s fightback with a great century on the second day of their ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Canada on Friday, October 26.

Namibia started the day at 313/6 with captain Bjorn Kotze not out on 87 and Tobie Verwey not out on 49.
Verwey was the first to go, bowled by Dhaniram for 61, but Kola Burger kept the run rate going with a typical swashbuckling knock.
Kotze was more circumspect, taking six overs to move off his score of 97 but he eventually reached his century in the 114th over.
Burger continued to attack the bowlers, hitting two huge sixes and five fours, but tried his luck once too often and was bowled by Dhaniram for 47 when he attempted another big hit.
MC van Zyl didnâ??t last long, before being bowled by Dhaniram for 2, while Louis Klazinga added five not out.
At lunch Kotze had moved to 132 not out which came off 318 balls and included 14 fours.
After lunch, Kotze and Klazinga upped the tempo and added 50 runs in seven overs. Kotze was not out on 163 and Klazinga not out on 19.
