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.

Some of the reactions on Twitter to Virat Kohli's record-equalling hundred during India's chase in Pune
In the past week, we have seen two shots that left us awestruck: Virat Kohli's jab that sailed over midwicket and Najibullah Zadran's six over the extra-cover boundary despite slipping in the process. Will either of the two top this compilation?
Stats highlights from the first ODI between India and England in Pune
Some of India's finest wins have come with Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in harness at the crease. At Cuttack they rolled back the years to extraordinary effect
The Twitter world rose up to applaud Yuvraj Singh's hundred, in his second game since being recalled to India's ODI squad
Currently, Ajinkya Rahane doesn't quite have the body of work in ODIs that merit his inclusion. What can he do to press for selection in the Champions Trophy?
His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
The shot Shakib Al Hasan played to be dismissed on day five at Basin Reserve defies explanation. It also prompts a few questions
As batting and bowling in ODIs takes on more of the attacking virtues of T20 cricket, where does the format stand as a product of its own?
