NED Team News

Netherlands will look for some good results in the tri-series. They did well in the ODI World Cup and would look to repeat the feat in T20 World Cup. They recently played a tri-series against Nepal where they beat both Namibia and Nepal and won the series after defeating Nepal in the final.

NED Team Batting

Scott Edwards, Max O Dowd and Vikramjeet Singh could be backed as top batters. O Dowd is the Netherlands’ highest run scorer in t20Is, with 1651 runs while Edwards is one of the most consistent performers for the side. He has 671 runs in just 56 matches. Vikramjit Singh is still new to the t20I team but has already shown his skills with the bat. The series will be a great platform for him to prove his match-winning abilities.
