Scotland will have to try again on Monday after their Super Six encounter against Namibia in the ICC World Cup qualifying tournament was delayed by rain.

The Scots had racked up 279-9 and had their opponents 59-2 after 12.1 overs of their reply in New Zealand when the rain came.

And when it was declared that no further play would be possible on Sunday, it was decided that the game would be finished on Monday's reserve day.

Scotland won the toss and decided to bat but were handed a blow when Calum MacLeod, who had scored 175 against Canada in the final group game, departed for just 10.

Fellow opener Matty Cross then fell for 27 but Matt Machan and skipper Preston Mommsen put on 82 for the third wicket to guide Scotland to 154-2.

Machan eventually fell for 78 after bringing up his half-century off just 33 balls and Mommsen soon followed for 46.

But the Scots were getting good contributions from their middle-order and Freddie Coleman scored 32 before being dismissed by Bernard Scholtz who was the pick of the Namibian bowlers with 3-55.

Rob Taylor (4) and Michael Leask (8) both fell cheaply but Richie Berrington was holding the innings together and he brought up his half century off 46 balls before falling for 51.

Majid Haq (3) was the other wicket to fall as the Scots managed to set what looked to be a competitive total.

Louis van der Westhuizen was the first to fall in reply as he went for just nine, caught by Machan off Taylor.

Sarel Burger was then clean bowled by Taylor to leave Namibia 39 for two before Stephan Baard (28no) and Craig Williams (8no) held the fort until the rain came.
