Johannes van der Merwe (born February 5, 1980, sometimes billed as Hannes van der Merwe) was a Namibiancricketer. He was a right-handed batsman and a right-arm offbreak bowler.
Born in Windhoek, the young batsman played in several youth one-day internationals during the Under-19 World Cups of 1997/98 and 1999/2000, his first match coming against Bangladesh Under-19s on January 12, 1998, where he was bowled out by a duck by Shabbir Khan.
Two years later, in the 1999/2000 Under-19 World Cup, he watched Australia Under-19s beat his team by 266 runs in a match dominated by Australian attack. He took part in the 2004 Intercontinental Cup where the Namibians lost by five wickets to Uganda.
