Twitter reacts to Van Schoor’s passing

News

Namibia batsman Raymond van Schoor passed away on Friday, with the news breaking overnight, and Twitter reacted with sadness, especially the South Africa players, who would have played against him regularly in domestic cricket.

Van Schoor collapsed last Sunday in Windhoek with playing against the Free State. He had suffered a stroke, and later went into a coma for nearly a week, before passing away on Friday 20 November.
