Cricket Namibia was honoured for its developmental efforts when it won three awards at the ICC Africa Development Programme 2009 Annual Awards which were recently announced.
Cricket Namibia won the Best Overall Cricket Development Programme, and the Best Spirit of Cricket Initiative, for its development programme in partnership with Unicef, which aims to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and alcohol abuse amongst Namibia’s youth. Wynand Louw, who is employed as Cricket Namibia’s head curator, won the ICC Africa Volunteer of the Year award.
Log leaders African Stars are in a great position to extend their lead at the top of the MTC Namibia Premier League, but they face a tough match when they take on a resurgent Eleven Arrows at the Kuisebmond Stadium on Saturday.
After Stars’ closest rivals, Orlando Pirates, dropped two points in a 1-all draw against Ramblers on Wednesday night, Stars are now two points clear at the top with a game in hand. If they manage to beat Arrows they will move five points clear and will be well set to retain the Premier League title.
