NED vs NZ: Match Preview:
After winning T20I series against Scotland and Ireland, New Zealand will lock horns against Netherlands in the first game of two-match T20I series that will be taking place at Sport Park Westvliet, The Hague.
Mitchell Santner led New Zealand won their last six T20Is and have the momentum in hand against Netherlands. In a single T20I match series against Scotland, Mark Chapman set strong contingent by scoring a hundred, whereas Glenn Phillips was the top scorer in Ireland series.
New Zealand bowling would be a matter of concern for the Kiwi camp. Against Scotland, Kiwi bowlers conceded +300 runs, which raises questions on New Zealand’s bowling.
On the other hand, the Dutch team despite losing the finals of ICC Men’s T20I Qualifier against Zimbabwe, have qualified for the World Cups is high with moral and having a good time.
Maxwell Patrick O’Dowd is the key batter for the Netherlands, who was the fourth top run getter in World Cup qualifiers with 178 runs in five matches. Whereas, in the bowling Scott Edwards side look firm as the top three bowlers Van Beek (11 wickets), FJ Klaassen (10 wickets), De Leede (9 wickets) in World Cup qualifier were from his team.
The T20I series between New Zealand and Netherlands will be crucial for Kiwis as they will look to give opportunity to their unused players who can be included in for the T20I World Cup later in the month October in Australia.
Despite having to exclude starter Martin Guptill, the Black Caps are not anticipated to make any big changes to their line-up and are likely to choose the same squad that set a T20I record of 254 against Scotland last Friday.
