On Friday, January 27, 2012 Border won their three day match in the CSA Provincial Challenge, against Namibia, by nine wickets at Buffalo Park, East London.
The second day of the match started with Border resuming their first innings after scoring 129 runs for the loss of four wickets at stumps on day one. Ramoo resumed the batting alongside DL Brown in a bid to post maximum runs in response to Namibia’s first innings tally of 177.
However, Namibia crushed their plans as Brown was dismissed without adding a run to his overnight score of eight, while Ramoo suffered the same fate as he was also prevented from going beyond his overnight score of 14.
With both top batsmen back in the pavilion, the Border batting line-up was put to test as Namibian bowlers launched a blistering bowling onslaught to restrict the batting side from dictating the game.
With 131 runs on the board, Border had lost seven wickets and were desperately seeking a commendable batting performance from the tail to at least provide them some sort of edge over their opponents.
Nonetheless, the side collapsed after amassing 190 runs on the board at the end of their first innings.
From Namibia, pacers Christi Viljoen and took four wickets each as they bowled stupendously well.
Namibia, had a decent start to their second innings, but were left in disarray later when Border bowlers unleashed h**l on the batsmen, preventing them from amassing a huge total on the board as the lower-batting line-up was completely incinerated in front of an astounding bowling attack.
With wicketkeeper/batsman, Ewald Steenkamp, as the highest scorer with 32 runs, the side could bolster only 94 runs in the second innings, giving Border a target of 82 runs to win.
From Border, left-arm spinner wrecked havoc on the batting side as he grabbed five wickets.
Border then reached the required target in 21.3 overs for the loss of only one wicket.
