Big stars back as Netherlands name T20 World Cup squad

From 16 October to 13 November 2022, the T20 World Cup will be held in Australia. The Netherlands qualified for this by beating the United States in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe in July 2022.

Scott Edwards will lead the side that has a strong pace attack with Brandon Glover, Timm van der Gugten, Logan van Beek and Paul van Meekeren. Ackermann is also a capable all-rounder who can bowl medium pace.

“We have assembled a well balanced squad with an exciting blend of youth and experience for the upcoming T20 World Cup,” head coach Ryan Cook said.

“The experience playing in the Super League will stand the team in good stead and good confidence can be taken from these performances.

“We will look to continue the progression that was evident through the summer into the tournament. And also have some quality preparation planned prior to the event. That will help the readiness for the group in both skills and cohesion.”

The Netherlands will play three matches in the Group Stage of the World Cup. In Group A, the Dutch team will take on the United Arab Emirates, Namibia and Sri Lanka.
