Andrew McGlashan

Namibia have named a 26-man training squad to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers in South Africa next April. The top four sides from the 12-team event will earn a place at the 2011 World Cup in Asia.

Openers Riaan Walters and Stefan Swanepoel, who both last played for Namibia nearly two years ago, are brought back into the fold and exciting youngster Raymond van Schoor, who missed most of last season due to school commitments, is handed an opportunity.

Sean Silver, Pikkie Ya France, Hendrik Marx and Ewald Steenkamp are also tipped to be part of the future.

Squad JB Burger, Raymond van Schoor, ST Ackermann, Stefan Swanepoel, Sarel Burger, Riaan Walters, Louis Burger, Craig Williams, Gerrie Snyman, Bjorn Kotze, Deon Kotze, Tobie Verwey, Nicolaas Scholtz, Bernard Scholtz, Louis Klazinga, Kola Burger, LP van der Westhuizen, Wilbur Slabber, Andrew Louw, Hendrik Marx, Ian van Zyl, Sean Silver, Pikkie Ya France, Ewald Steenkamp, Martin van Niekerk and Pieter Rossouw.

Andrew began his cricket writing as a freelance covering Lancashire during 2004 when they were relegated in the County Championship. In fact, they were top of the table when he began reporting on them but things went dramatically downhill. He likes to let people know that he is a supporter of county cricket, a fact his colleagues will testify to and bemoan in equal quantities.
