The International Cricket Council has expressed its shock and sadness at the passing of Namibia’s wicketkeeper-batsman Raymond Van Schoor, who died on Friday (November 20), aged 25.

“I am shocked and saddened by this news,” ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said, adding: “Raymond was a regular member of the Namibia cricket team, a promising young player with the potential to go a long way.

“On behalf of the ICC, I express my sincere sorrow and condolences to Raymond’s family and friends, as well as all those involved in Namibia cricket.”

Van Schoor scored 52 and 42 in Namibia’s 114-run victory in the first round action of the ongoing four-day first-class ICC International Cup 2015-2017. In the second match against Ireland, van Schoor contributed five and one as Ireland won by an innings and 107 runs.
