The partnership, which has already been running for six years, “has lifted the standard and profile of the game in Namibia through ever increasing numbers of players participating in cricket throughout the country,” said board president Francois Erasmus.

The sponsorship covers the costs of the national team’s participation in the South African competitions as well as the grass roots cricket, infrastructure development, national leagues, and payments to senior players and management.
