Namibia: Cricket Namibia Looks to Groom Young Blood

Windhoek — Cricket Namibia recently launched an initiative that will help identify the crème de la crème of aspiring local cricketers.

A Talent Identification Programme was launched in Walvis Bay last week, with the aim of scouting future talent and to make sure that young cricketers are well looked after and properly nurtured.

Over the years, too many players have been lost through the old system and Cricket Namibia has now devised this new Talent Identification Programme to find aspiring players that are good enough to play for the national team.

With the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup around the corner, it was very important to make sure that players do not miss out on this opportunity and also to make sure that the best players are selected for the squad.

With this programme, Cricket Namibia will identify talent in different age groups and than place the selected players in a High Performance Programme (HPP), so that come the trials and international competitions, the players will be ready to give their utmost best.
