Raymond Van Schoor played more than 200 times for his country and played for Namibia in both the recent ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier in 2015 as well as Namibia's most recent ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Ireland in Windhoek.

The President of Cricket Namibia, Richard Frankle issued the following statement this evening.

It is with deep regret and sorrow that I announce the passing of Raymond van Schoor at 19h17 Namibian time on Friday the 20th November 2015. On behalf of Cricket Namibia, I express my most sincere condolences to the entire Van Schoor and La Cock families. Raymond was a tremendous asset to Cricket Namibia and the National Cricket Team.

He was taken far too early from us. We however accept that Almighty God needed him to represent the Heavenly Angels! May his soul rest in peace!

Richard Frankle
President: Cricket Namibia
