Former South African Cricketer David Weiss Will represent Namibia in the upcoming edition T20 World CupThe Namibian national team coach Pierre Debrunn confirmed the news in a recent interview.
Wiese played 6 ODIs and 20 T20Is for Proteas, won 194 runs and 33 wickets. After being ignored by national selectors, he signed a three-year Kolpak deal with Sussex in January 2017.
The 36-year-old was wearing a South African jersey for the last time in the 2016 T20 World Cup against Sri Lanka at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in Delhi.
Since his father was born in Namibia, Wiese is qualified to play international cricket for Namibia.
“David’s father was born here, so he is eligible to play for Namibia. He is playing in the T20 Blast in England, but will join us after that, and can also participate in the World Cup after the World Cup, so I am very excited about it .
“His team Sussex has reached the quarter-finals, so we have to see how far he can go, but I hope he can at least participate in the Free State Tour,” A British daily in Namibia quoted De Braun as saying.
Wiese has experience playing in various franchise leagues around the world (including the Titans), and he hopes to play an excellent batting ability and feel in his new international team.
