Jan-Berrie Burger burst into the limelight during the 2003 World Cup by striking a brutal 85 from 86 deliveries in the group match against England. He was just 21 at the time and was the first Namibian to hit an ODI fifty, which remains the nation's highest score. Although the tournament was not a huge success for the African side, Burger came away with the reputation of a beefy hitter who could trouble any attack on his day.
In 2004 he had scores of 61, 75 and 71 in consecutive matches during Namibia's tour of Zimbabwe in 2004 and, although inconsistent in first-class cricket, he is capable of giving Namibia flying starts either opening the batting or coming in at No. 3. He also bowls occasional legspin.

Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
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
