Captain of the national side, Louis Burger is a solid middle-order batsman who also bowls as first change for Namibia. He took over as captain from Deon Kotze in 2006 and has been in sizzling form since, scoring two first-class centuries, the biggest of which was 120 as his side demolished the United Arab Emirates inside two days in the 2006/2007 Intercontinental Cup.
He played all six of Namibia's matches in the 2003 World Cup and although he had a nightmare with the bat - his top-score was 5 - he did dismiss Matthew Hayden, Michael Bevan and Ricky Ponting on his way to figures of 3 for 39 against Australia.

For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
