Wiese’s last T20I appearance was against Sri Lanka in the ICC World T20 in 2016 in India. He didn’t have much role in the game as the Proteas won comfortably by eight wickets. But he did cause the run out of Suranga Lakmal.

Wiese’s international career had ended in January 2017 when he signed the Kolpak deal with Sussex.

Nambia squad for T20 World Cup: Gerhard Erasmus (c), Stephen Baard, Karl Birkenstock. Michau du Preez, Jan Frylinck, Zane Green, Nicol Lofie-Eaton, Bernard Scholtz, Ben Shikongo, JJ Smit, Ruben Trumpelmann, Michael van Lingen, David Wiese, Craig Williams, Picky Ya France
