Bairstow, Brook shine as England triumph over Namibia

Bairstow, Brook shine as England triumph over Namibia

Antigua, June 16 (UNI) Jonny Bairstow and Harry Brook's partnership helped England secure a crucial victory against Namibia in a rain-shortened match here on early hours of Sunday IST.
The game, delayed by three hours, was reduced to 10 overs per side due to a brief shower.
Bairstow and Brook's half-century stand revived England after a shaky start, allowing them to post a competitive total of 122/5. Bairstow scored a vital 31 runs, while Brook remained unbeaten with a solid 47.
Chasing a revised target of 127 runs, Namibia struggled to build momentum. Despite efforts from Michael van Lingen, who scored 33, and David Wiese with 27, Namibia could only manage 84/3 in their 10 overs.
England's bowlers, particularly Jofra Archer and Chris Jordan, kept the pressure on, securing a comfortable 41-run victory for the defending champions.
Brief Scores
England: 122/5 in 10 overs (Harry Brook 47*, Jonny Bairstow 31; Ruben Trumpelmann 2-31)
Namibia: 84/3 in 10 overs (Michael van Lingen 33, David Wiese 27; Jofra Archer 1-15)
