    Namibia's van Schoor dies after on-field stroke

    November 22, 2015

    Namibia wicketkeeper-batsman Raymond van Schoor has died in Windhoek at age 25, five days after suffering a stroke during a match. Van Schoor was batting on 15 during Namibia's five-wicket win over Free State in a CSA Provincial One-Day Challenge contest when he collapsed on field and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital.

    Van Schoor remained hospitalised since then but never recovered and was pronounced dead on Friday night. Cricket Namibia president Richard Frankle paid tribute to van Schoor in a written statement announcing the tragic news.


    "Raymond was a tremendous asset to Cricket Namibia and the national cricket team," Frankle said. "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!"
