[Watch] Erasmus 'Smiles' As Leask Gives Him An Angry Send Off After Cross' Clinical Stumping

Namibian skipper Gerhard Erasmus had a memorable outing in his side's ongoing T20 World Cup affair against Scotland at the iconic Kensington Oval in Barbados. 

Coming at number four, Erasmus struck a valiant 31-ball 52, rescuing Namibia from a precarious position. However, before he could ensure a fitting finish for his team, the stylish right-hander was dismissed by Michael Leask. 

The incident occurred during the 14th over of Namibia's innings when Erasmus had just shifted gears, completing his breezy fifty. 

Skipper Richie Berrington's decision to bring Leask into the attack worked wonders for Scotland, with the spinner getting the prized scalp of the Namibian captain. 

After conceding a six that helped Erasmus get into his half-century, Leask bowled a good length ball around the middle stump. It turned into the batter, who shimmed down the track to unsettle the bowler. 

However, the turn was enough to beat Erasmus, who was found well short of his crease at the striker's end. Before he could return to the crease, Scotland keeper Matt Cross dislodged the bails, resulting in his dismissal. 

Erasmus' wicket opened the floodgates for Namibia as they lost three more wickets in quick succession. As of writing, Namibia were 151 for eight in 18.4 overs, with JJ Smit and Bernard Scholtz batting in the middle.
