15 May 2019 | Sports

Cricket Namibia has announced a strong 14-man squad for the ICC T20 World Cup Africa Finals tournament to be held in Kampala, Uganda from 17 to 24 May.

It also congratulated those chosen for the squad and wished them the best for the tournament.

Merwe Gerhard Erasmus will captain the team, while Nicolaas Frylinck will be the vice-captain.

Pierre de Bruyn is the head coach, while Albie Morkel will be assisting him, and Dee Thakur is the team manager.

Namibia will be up against Botswana, Uganda, Ghana, Nigeria and Kenya.

The top two teams will book their place for the ICC Global T20 Qualifier slated for 11 October to 3 November in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Namibia will first take on Uganda in their first match on 21 May.

Last month Namibia thumped Oman by 145 runs to win the World Cricket League Division 2 trophy.

A record Namibian total, propelled by twin centuries from Stephan Baard and JP Kotze, took them to a historic win over Hong Kong at Affies Park to clinch ODI status for the tournament hosts.

As a result of Namibia's ODI status, the team will be playing one-day internationals for the first time since the 2003 World Cup.

The squad for Uganda is as follows: Stephen Julian Baard, Danie van Schoor, Jan Izak de Villiers, Merwe Erasmus, Jan Nicolaas Frylinck, Zane Green, Zhivago Groenewald, Nikolaas Davin, Tangeni Lungameni, Bernard Scholtz, Johannes Jonathan Smit, Christoffel Viljoen, Karl Birkenstock and Helao Ya France.
