Namibia was to host Zimbabwe from 22nd January to 3rd February for five T20I’s and a couple of ODI’s.

Natalia Nauyoma, Cricket Namibia’s Marketing Manager, stated, “Cricket Namibia is saddened to announce the postponement of the women’s series against Zimbabwe due to the opponent’s lockdown regulations.”

But all is not lost. A 14-member Namibian women’s team will instead assemble for a national camp scheduled for 18th-22nd January and will participate in inter-squad games in Windhoek.

Squad for the camp

Irené van Zyl (c), Yasmeen Khan (wk), Adri van der Merwe, Kayleen Green, Suné Wittmann, Sylvia Shihepo, Arassta Diergaardt, Wilka Mwatile, Mekelanye Mwatile, Reehana Khan, Shiomwenyo Namusha, Didi Foerster, Victoria Hamunyela and Phia Gerber.
