Gerrie Snyman (born April 30, 1981 in Windhoek) is a Namibian cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-fast bowler. He played five One Day Internationals in the Cricket World Cup in 2003, and also played in the 2005 ICC Trophy. He has also played List A cricket and first-class cricket.
In January 2007 he hit the first century of his career, against Easterns - and managed his first five-wicket innings eleven months later against Uganda in the ICC World Cricket League. Snyman played for Walsall in the Birmingham League during 2006 and signed for Staffordshire for 2007.
Gerrie was the overseas player at Tamworth cricket club during the 2003 and 2004 season before moving to Walsall Cricket Club during the 2006 and 2007 seasons. He played a big part in the 2006 side that won the Birmingham League Premier Division. This is one of the most coveted titles in English club cricket. Since the beginning of August, Snyman has made his Second XI Championship debut for Worcestershire's Second XI, taking one wicket for the team.
In a game against the United Arab Emirates on November 28, 2007, Snyman hit a world record 17 sixes in a single limited overs innings, culminating in a final score of 196 from 113 balls.
Against Kenya in the 2007-08 ICC Intercontinental Cup he brought up his maiden first-class double century. Snyman's innings of 230 came from just 201 deliveries and included 11 sixes. His innings was all the more remarkable in that Namibia were all out for 282, so he made 82% of the team total, with the second top scorer Michael Durandt making only 13. Snyman then repeated the feat 4 years later against the same opponents in the 2011-13 ICC Intercontinental Cup, scoring 201 not out from 192 deliveries, which included 7 sixes.
He was named in the team of the tournament after the ICC Intercontinental Cup in 2007-08.
