That is it from today's game. Namibia have sealed their place in the next stage of the qualifiers but we still do not know who will be the remaining teams to join them. So far, Papua New Guinea and Netherlands have qualified from group A along with Namibia, while Ireland and Oman have qualified from group B. Join us on Sunday as Papua New Guinea takes on Kenya at 1000 Local (0600 GMT). Till then, cheers and take care!

Amjad Mahmood, the Singapore skipper, says that they started well but credits Gerhard Erasmus who played a superb innings and took the game away. Points out that three dropped catches did not help them and believes they will work hard. Further says that he did not mind chasing on this wicket. Mentions that his side played good cricket throughout the tournament and are taking back a lot of positives. Ends by saying that they have a few quick bowlers back in Singapore who are quite good.

Namibia skipper, Gerhard Erasmus, gets the Man of the Match award for his superb half ton. On his back-to-back half tons, Erasmus says that as a leader of the side he needed to step up and he is happy he did that. Adds that if the batters can get the timing right, the longer boundary should not be an issue. On the over where he hit 4 consecutive sixes, Erasmus says that he was happy to hit those runs from the middle of the bat. Adds that the entire batting has not fired together yet but they are not worried about it and will stay calm. On the bowlers, Erasmus mentions that the bowlers are skillful and if they can bowl on good lines and lengths, they can dismiss any batters in the world. Going into the next phase of the tournament, the skipper hopes that maybe the senior pros of the side can turn up in these pressure games and help the side win. On the dropped catches, Erasmus mentions that things like this happen. Adds that they have held onto quite a few good catches in the tournament so they can't term this as a weakness.

Earlier in the day, it was the Gerhard Erasmus show. He played aggressively throughout his knock of 72 runs off 46 balls. The other Namibian batters supported him throughout his innings as they played around him and helped their team post a huge score of 191 runs on the board. None of the bowlers showed any stomach for Singapore except their skipper Amjad Mahboob who took a 3-fer.

As for Namibia, they carried on the work that their batters did in the first innings as they destroyed the Singapore team. Jan Frylinck was top-notch throughout his spell as he took a 4-fer and bowled very good lines and lengths. He was ably supported by all his bowlers but Christi Viljoen is the one who stood out as he too took a 3-fer and finished off the innings.

Right from the word go, the Namibian bowlers were on top of the Singapore batters. No one except for Navin Param crossed even the 20-run mark for Singapore and it never looked like they would chase down this huge total set by the Namibia team.

Namibia have sailed through to a victory here over Singapore as they have defeated them by 87 runs! They move onto third place in their group which means that they have qualified to the next stage.
