The captain of the Richelieu Eagles, Gerhard Erasmus, said the team representing Namibia at the ICC Men's T20 Cricket World Cup is well-balanced and raring to hit the ground running.

Cricket Namibia announced their 16-man Richelieu Eagles squad for the upcoming ICC Men's T20 Cricket World Cup set to be held in the USA and the West Indies.

Heading to their third successive World Cup, the team has not been short of game time, having toured Oman, whom they will face in their opening match and Nepal for a couple of T20 and 50 Overs Series as part of their preparations.

According to the captain of the Richelieu Eagles, Gerhard Erasmus, the squad has a good mixture of experience and young talent and he is excited to lead the team at the World Cup.

Erasmus also spoke highly of the youngsters who got the nod.

Players such as PD Blignaut and Jack Brassell recently represented Namibia at the U19 Cricket World Cup in South Africa, and Erasmus said that their inclusion is about ensuring continuity.

He said that the team is looking forward to testing themselves against some top cricket-playing nations like England and Australia, who will go into the World Cup as pre-tournament favourites alongside the likes of India, New Zealand and South Africa.
