Namibia have named their squad to face Bermuda in the Intercontinental Cup on September 3.

The 14-man squad contains a mixture of experience and youth, and they draft in the debutant Bernard Scholtz, who represented his country in February's Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia. Scholtz, the younger brother of Nicholaas and a slow left-arm spinner, took six wickets at 28.33.

Bermuda are propping up the ICC Intercontinental Cup on 26 points and face an in-form Namibia who are second in the competition, trailing Kenya by 14 points with a game in hand.

    I am always a fan of teams blooding their younger players. And if this guy who i believe is just 18 is good enough to player of Namibia, then play him. It will be interesting to see how he goes next week in the Bermuda game.
