Alasdair Evans, Michael Leask and Gavin Main each took two wickets for the hosts in Edinburgh - the latter for the loss of only nine runs - as Namibia finished their 20 overs on 127 for eight.

George Munsey got Scotland off the mark with a four but was then bowled before adding to his score and both Craig Wallace (14) and Leask (six) were gone before the end of the fourth over.
