Namibia let slip a fine start in their Cricket South Africa three-day match against Boland in Paarl on Thursday, and at stumps the hosts had fought their way back into a commanding position.
Namibia had the hosts in deep trouble at 91/6 at a stage, but a fine recovery by their lower order batsmen saw Boland recover to 208 all out. Boland then pressed home their advantage and at stumps Namibia were struggling at 110 for seven wickets.
Boland, who won the toss and elected to bat, were made to look very ordinary against a fired up Namibian bowling attack.
