Namibia stun Sri Lanka to claim T20 World Cup opener

T20 World Cup: Namibia stun Sri Lanka by 55 runs in tournament opener

GEELONG – A strong team performance has helped Namibia register a stunning 55-run upset victory over Sri Lanka in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup clash opener in Geelong on Sunday.

Some big hitting from Jan Frylinck (44) and JJ Smit (31*) helped Namibia overcome a shaky start to register 163/7

Bernard Scholtz (2/18), David Wiese (2/16), Ben Shikongo (2/22) and Player of the Match Frylinck (2/26)

all picked up two wickets apiece as Sri Lanka's world class batting line-up failed to fire on the big stage.
