WIth four matches left, the qualifier play-off in Windhoek could be set for an exciting conclusion with a three, four or even five way tie for the two spots in the qualifier for the men's World Cup a possibility depending on how those four matches go.

USA and UAE are out in front at the top of the table though after both recorded wins today.

USA batted first against Papua New Guinea and scored 235-7, Steven Taylor top scoring with 81 and Aaron Jones contributing 66. Semo Kamea was the pick of the PNG bowlers with 3-32.

Even that low total proved to be too much for the Pacific islanders though, as they were bundled out for 118, Gajanand Singh taking 4-15 and Ali Khan 3-31. Assad Vala had the only contribution of note for PNG with 42 in the 117 run defeat.

The United Club ground has been the higher scoring of the two venues so far in the tournament and so it proved again today as UAE racked up 267-5 from their 50 overs against hosts Namibia. Asif Khan and Muhammad Waseem were out just short of centuries with Khan falling from 96 from 86 balls and Waseem finishing the innings unbeaten on 93.

A few batters got a decent start in the Namibia reply but none were able to go on and get a big score with Shaun Fouché's 47 their top score. Zahoor Khan and Rohan Mustafa both took three wickets as the home side were bowled out for 239, losing by 26 runs.

Monday is a rest day in Windhoek allowing teams to work out all the possible permutations. The one thing we know for certain though is that Papua New Guinea will finish last, be relegated to the Challenge League and lose ODI status. Everything else is still up for grabs.

When play resumes on Tuesday, Namibia take on Canada whilst Jersey come up against the USA.
