NAMIBIA TO HOST ICC INTERCONTINENTAL CUP

The semi-finals will take place from October 23 to 25 with the final taking place from October 27 to 30. All matches will be staged in the capital Windhoek with the final due to take place at the Wanderers Club.

Namibia Cricket Board President, Laurie Pieters, said that the preparations for the finals were already underway.

“The awarding of the finals of this prestigious ICC event to our country is a major boost for cricket and those that love the sport in Namibia,” said Pieters.

“We already have the grounds and facilities required and preparations have now begun to ensure that we are ready to welcome the regional winners.”

The second season of the ICC Intercontinental Cup will begin later this month. Reigning champions, Scotland, will begin their title defence three months later with a difficult away tie against Holland on July 29 to 31.

Hong Kong is the only new side in the 12-team ICC tournament which last season brought competitive multi-day cricket to the second tier of cricket nations for the first time.
