South Africa’s former all rounder, David Wiese is aiming to represent another country in the T20 World Cup 2021 set to take place this October.
Playing his maiden big event 5 years back, it is going to be his second T20 World Cup but not for the homeland, instead for Namibia.
Johan Muller, the CEO of Cricket Namibia, has on-screened Wises’s availability for Namibia’s T20 World Cup squad. Although the crew is not finalised but the all rounder has qualified to play for them immediately.

Namibia, including other T20 World Cup participants, is supposed to submit their squad before 10th September to the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Wiese has represented South Africa in 6 ODIs and 20 T20Is scoring 102 and 92 runs alongside bagging 9 and 24 wickets respectively.
Aside from international cricket, the all rounder has featured for distinct teams in first-class and List A cricket scoring 5814 and 3711 runs in 124 and 153 games. He has been dominant with the ball too grasping 344 and 140 wickets sequentially.
It is pertinent to mention that the ball-smasher has been in-demand in T20 cricket getting called-up by different leagues across the globe. He has stayed a crucial part of the PSL, CPL, BPL, and IPL. It can be Namibia’s chance to strengthen their squad ahead of the contest.
Moreover, it will be their first T20 World Cup representation after they qualified in the playoffs of the Qualifiers beating Oman in 2019.
