Namibia have booked their spot at the 2024 Men’s T20 World Cup after guaranteeing a top-two finish in African qualifying with a game to spare.
The Eagles secured a 58-run win over Tanzania in Windhoek and sit top of the table with five wins from five after previous victories against Zimbabwe, Uganda, Rwanda and Kenya.
Uganda, Kenya and Zimbabwe remain in contention to secure second spot in the table and join Namibia at the T20 World Cup next year, with Uganda facing east African rivals Kenya on Wednesday while Namibia wraps up the campaign against the Yellow Greens of Nigeria.
“It is exciting times for Namibia,” Van Vuuren added.
“We have a strong pipeline developing. We look forward to the T20 World Cup and then, building on that, the Under-19 World Cup in 2026 and obviously the 50-over World Cup in 2027.”
