TEAMS

Raymond van Schoor, a wicketkeeper-batsman who was a mainstay in the Namibia batting line-up, had gathered more than 8000 runs for his country in 265 career games - making him their most capped player - before he was tragically killed by an on-field stroke in November 2015 aged 25. At the time, he was positioned second on their first-class runs list behind only Craig Williams, and third on their List-A runs list behind Gerrie Snyman and Williams. His 1550 T20 runs topped Namibia's charts.

At 22, van Schoor was named the Player of the Tournament at the ICC World T20 Qualifier in the UAE after topping the averages with 324 runs at 54.00. That same year, he was named 2012 Cricketer of the Year at Cricket Namibia's annual awards. Van Schoor served as both vice-captain and captain for Namibia, leading a total of 40 times.

Van Schoor came from a cricketing family, with his father Melt and brother Danie also turning out for Namibia. He died in Windhoek, five days after suffering a stroke during a match in the CSA Provincial One-Day Challenge. Van Schoor was batting on 15 when he collapsed and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital. He remained hospitalised but never recovered.
