Babar scored his 23rd Twenty20 international fifty with a 49-ball 70.

While Fakhar Zaman was smartly caught by keeper Zane Green for five.

Veteran Mohammad Hafeez scored 32 not out with five boundaries on a brisk 16-balls.

Rizwan finished with a 50-ball 79 not out.

While batting second Namibia could only put 144-5 till the last ball of the innings.

The African newbies showed some good account of their ability and promise.
