Milestone
That's it. Thank you for joining us! Goodbye from Sidharth Gulati, Ayan Chatterjee and our scorer Paras Yadav.
Gerhard Erasmus (Namibia Captain and Player of the Match): "Happy with the win. The boys responded well and we restricted them to chase it down in the end. Yes, good preparation for us going into the T20 World Cup qualifiers and playing a quality side like Zimbabwe will always help us. Thank you for the Player of the Match award."  
Craig Ervine (Zimbabwe Captain): "Yes, it was a disappointing performance from us today. We were not up for it and we lost today. Great preparation for us going into the T20 World Cup Qualifiers coming up later on. Tomorrow is the decider."  
Time for the post-match presentations 
5:41 PM IST, 2:11 PM Local Time | Riding an all-round effort, Nambia defeated Zimbabwe by seven wickets in the fourth T20I on Sunday (October 29), in Windhoek. After being asked to field first, Namibia bowlers hit the right lengths and restricted Zimbabwe to 153/6 in their full quota of 20 overs. Zimbabwe skipper Craig Ervine hit an unbeaten fifty. Opener Tinashe Kamunhukamwe's 32-ball 32 was the other notable contribution as Zimbabwe, on a low and slow track, found it difficult to up the scoring rate. For Namibia, Handre Klazinge and Gerhard Erasmus ended with two wickets each. 

In response, solid knocks from Namibia's top-four -- Michael van Lingen (47), Nikolaas Davin (34), Jan Frylinck (29) and Erasmus (31*) -- guided them past the finish line eight balls remaining. Once Namibia openers Lingen and Davin stitched an 82-run stand, the other batters showed the same confidence and helped their team level the five-match T20I series. 

The fifth and final game will be played on Monday (October 30) at the same venue.

4 FOUR! Short of a length angling in around off, Erasmus steers it away past the point region to deep third man as the ball races away to the third man fence for a boundary. That will be the end of the game. Erasmus hits the winning runs as Namibia wins the game by 7 wickets with 8 balls left to level the series 2-2 with one to play.
