The Windies have always won easily in previous clashes with the Netherlands in 2007, 2011 and 2018. This year, however, the Netherlands, which did not even approach its experts playing in England, played fantastic cricket against the spectators.

Orange were all out for 214 in the second game. West Indies did it with a few more overs to spare. VCC player Boss de Leede was the Netherlands’ best bowler, 2-46. VCC young lex spinner Sharis Ahmed (1-28) took the wicket from Kyle Myers.
In the third and final match (308 – 288) Pace de Leede was again the Dutch bowler with the best points (1-34). In addition, he caught a world catch in the outfield and scored 25 runs in the run chase, which ultimately failed.
VCC players Musa Ahmed and Logan van Peek scored 42 and 15 runs respectively. According to Musa, this is the highest score he has ever scored for the Orange team in a one-day international.
The Netherlands will play three more ODIs against England in Amsterdam on June 17, 19 and 22, and to qualify for the World Cup. 12,000 to 15,000 visitors are expected to attend.
