Openers keep Namibia in commanding position
Namibia openers Ewaid Steenkamp and Raymond van Schoor posted centuries to build a record-breaking partnership and take their side to a commanding 277-run lead over Bermuda on the second day of the ICC Intercontinental Shield match played at Wanderer's Cricket Ground, Windhoek on Sunday.

Steenkamp smashed a massive 206 while teammate van Schoor followed it up with a brilliant 157 as the pair built an opening partnership of 374 runs - which is the highest for any wicket in ICC Intercontinental Cup/Shield history.

After dismissing the openers, the bowlers began to gain control of the match with only skipper Craig Williams putting in some resistance with his half-century to finish the day at 491-6 in 105 overs.

Bermuda had earlier posted a target of 214 all out on the opening day of the four-day match.
