Profile

Bjorn Kotze, the younger brother of former captain Deon, has been playing for Namibia since he was 19. He made an inauspicious start to his international career when he registered a three-ball duck on debut against the Netherlands. He usually bats in the middle-order and bowls useful medium-pace.
