Cricket Namibia is hosting a five-day National Women’s Camp at JC Sports Indoor training facility in Windhoek owned by Eagles player, Craig Williams. The camp commenced on Monday 18th January and will be ongoing until Friday 22nd January 2021.

The 14 selected National Squad is made up of Windhoek and Coastal players, and according to the Women’s Head Coach, Francois van der Merwe, says he is happy and confident with the selected squad.

The training sessions during the camp include net-facing, left-arm spin (strike rotation), one-on-one with a bowling machine, batting skills, bowling skills, and fielding. Mental health is vital and the ladies have a daily session where they focus on how to be better athletes. The sessions include how to deal with fear, boost confidence, mental strength, and setting and achieving goals.

Francois van der Merwe, “It is fortunate that the squad can still practice with the current COVID 19 regulations, and training at JC Sports has been convenient especially with the unpredictable weather. The girls are starting to hit the balls harder and bowling faster, it was great to have input from Craig Williams on their performance and training sessions”

Selected 14 players: 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.

It is great to have all 14 payers together for the first time at the same place, and we believe that they are the ultimate 14 players set to represent Namibia.
