Live Cricket Score: Namibia 61/1 | Overs 7.4

A 17-over game to commence now due to the lost time. After the long delay, Van Schoor takes a four and a brace from Shakti Gauchan, but play is suspended again for rain after four balls.

Play has stopped, because RAIN has arrived again.

Live Cricket Score: Namibia 44/1 | Overs 6

Stephan Baard 25, Raymond van Schoor 3

The other opener Snyman has got out to Nepal’s captain Paras Khadka. The over before that, the fourth over, is a costly one as Baard hits a four an a six off Basant Regmi.

Live Cricket Score: Namibia 20/0 | Overs 3

Stephan Baard 16, Gerrie Snyman 8

Stephan Baard has begun aggressively for Namibia after a rain-delayed start, and has hit a six to get his team to a positive start.

Play has begun at Belfast.

Rain isn’t heavy but doesn’t relent. Covers are still on at Belfast.

News from Belfast is that Nepal win the toss and choose to field against Namibia. There are covers on the ground due to a bit of rain.

Live Cricket Score: Jersey 154/1 | Overs 17.2 overs (Target 154)

Peter Gough 75 (55), Jonty Jenner 11 (10)

Gough’s unbeaten 81 leads Jersey to a comfortable win against Hong Kong. From the start they have been in control of the chase.


Live Cricket Score: Jersey 144/1 | Overs 16 (Target 154)

Peter Gough 75 (55), Jonty Jenner 7 (7)

Jersey lost their first wicket in the 13th over; opener Edward Farley departed for 57. But they seem to be cruising along to a victory, with the other opener Peter Gough still batting on 75. A run-rate of 9 is maintained.


Live Cricket Score: Oman 136/7 | Overs 20 (Target 144)

Rajeshkumar Ranpura 9 (4), Aameer Kaleem 9 (3)

Amir Ali’s 30 off 20 balls wasn’t enough to get Oman past the winning line; after being reduced to 90 for 6, he allowed them to have a peek at victory. Kenya won by seven runs.


Live Cricket Score: Scotland 159 | Overs 20 (Target 192)

Preston Mommsen 68 (44)

Decent resistance from Preston Mommsen has allowed Scotland to recover to some respectability. They finish their innings at 159, losing by 32 runs. Mommsen remains unbeaten at 68 off 44 balls.


Live Cricket Score: Oman 98/6 | Overs 17 (Target 144)

A collapse has made this a one-sided contest.


Live Cricket Score: Jersey 85/0 | Overs 10 (Target 154)

Jersey’s openers Edward Farley and Peter Gough have shaped Jersey’s chase well. They have targeted specific bowlers: Aizaz Khan and Aziz Ahmed have been smashed for 29 and 25 runs respectively in their two overs, but they have played 13 dots against Tanvir Afzal, scoring 18 off his four overs.


Live Cricket Score: Scotland 110/7 | Overs 15 (Target 192)

Preston Mommsen 34 (27), Safyaan Sharif 10 (8)

Mommsen has hit a six and a four, and his partner Sharif has hit a four, in the few overs they have been together. The required run-rate of 16.40 makes it a very tough ask for Scotland.


Live Cricket Score: Scotland 80/7 | Overs 12 (Target 192)

Preston Mommsen 17 (17), Safyaan Sharif 6 (5)

Catches in the deep, and a nice reflex catch from the wicketkeeper have got Scotland three more wickets, as Netherlands tighten their grip on this contest. Scotland are left with the tail now, and captain Preston Mommsen.


Live Cricket Score: Oman 38/2 | Overs 8

Oman’s openers have been dismissed, but their run-rate of less than five per over could hurt them as they go about chasing 144 against Kenya.


Live Cricket Score: Scotland 58/4 | Overs 8 (Target 192)

Callum MacLeod 18 (20), Preston Mommsen 4 (4)

Scotland have lost three wickets in their chase of 192. Matthew Cross was looking to gather runs at quick pace for the hosts, but after hitting five fours in his 15-ball 22, he got out to left-arm spinner Van der Merwe in the sixth over. Now, with Richie Berrington also gone, the task looks steep.


Live Cricket Score: Hong Kong 153/6 | Overs 20

A collective effort from the batting order gets Hong Kong to 154 for 6 after 20 overs against Jersey. Cornelis Bodenstein is Jersey’s most successful bowler, with four for 23 in his three overs.


Live Cricket Score: Kenya 143/6 | Overs 20

Collins Obuya’s half-century has led Kenya to a decent recovery. Oman need 144 to win this game at Myreside, Edinburgh.


Live Cricket Score: Hong Kong 107/2 | Overs 14

The opener, Rath, has scored 36 off 37 balls. He’s batting with No.4 Chapman, who replaced Nizakat Khan in the middle.


Live Cricket Score: Netherlands 191/4 | Overs 20

Mudassar Bukhari 2(2), Pieter Seelaar 5(5)

Peter Borren has hit a 28-ball 57, and having combined with Van der Merwe, has helped Netherlands set a stiff target of 192. Ten sixes have been hit in the innings.


Live Cricket Score: Kenya 113/3 | Overs 16

Rakep Patel and Collins Obuya have put on 39 for the fourth wicket, with the batsmen showing signs of accelerating.


Live Cricket Score: Hong Kong 65/1 | Overs 10

Opener Irfan Ahmed has been the major enforcer for Hong Kong, hitting two sixes in his 19-ball 27, but they have largely been sedate otherwise. Irfan got out in the sixth over.


Live Cricket Score: Netherlands 135/4 | Overs 15

Peter Borren 23 (15), Roelof van der Merwe 12 (8)

After a healthy partnership, Barresi and Ben Cooper get out within two balls of each other, in the 11th over. Michael Swart also dismissed, in the 13th over, before Peter Borren and Roelof van der Merwe get together to accelerate with a few big hits, including two sixes.


Live Cricket Score: Hong Kong 33/0 | Overs 4

Jersey won the toss and decided to field.


Live Cricket Score: Kenya 37/2 | Overs 8

Oman’s spinners seem to be causing hesitation and an approach of caution in Kenya’s batsmen.


Live Cricket Score: Netherlands 97/1 | Overs 10

Wesley Barresi 64 (35), Ben Cooper 8 (10)

After the wicket of Stephan Myburgh in the third over, No. 3 Wesley Barresi and Ben Cooper have capitalised on some lapses in the field, and Barresi, especially has accelerated heavily, with five sixes, to set a strong base for a commanding 20-over total.


The match between Hong Kong and Jersey at Bready has been delayed due to a wet ground.

News, also from Edinburgh, is that Oman have won the toss against Nepal, and have chosen to bat.
