Kenya Under-19s fell to arch-rivals in and African counterparts Namibia Under-19s by 109 runs at the Drummond Cricket Club.
Namibia's posted a total of 314 thanks to skipper Stephen Baard's 89 and Merwe Erasmus' 51, while Gert Lotter's 35 off 18 balls and Christopher Coombe's 31 off 17 balls proved too much for the Kenyans. Lotter and Coombe took 64 runs off the last five overs to ensure Namibia reached the highest total of the tournament.
Kenya never really went for the total in reply, her chase revolved around Duncan Allan (34) and Joseph Ochieng got a half-century but they ended up losing by a big margin. Once Allan fell, the chase was not on and Kenya ended at 205 for eight in its 50 overs.
Namibia had one eye on the Nepal v USA encounter when it took on Kenya and they had to win by a big margin to strengthen its claims for qualification, which they did thanks to Nepal beating USA and the Americans run-rate suffered as a result.
For Kenya's Allan the only consolation of the day was being voted the Player of the Tournament for his all round-performances. The team returns home on Thursday morning.
