NZ vs NED: New Zealand gear up to face Netherlands in white-ball matches
NZ vs NED: Following an exciting series against South Africa, New Zealand will take a break from Test match cricket to prepare for a one-off T20 and three-match ODI series against the Netherlands.
The one-off T20 will be held on Friday, with the three-match ODI series beginning on March 29. After announcing his retirement earlier this year, veteran Blackcaps hitter Ross Taylor is set to make his final appearance in international cricket. His experience will be helpful to a very young New Zealand team.
For players like Michael Bracewell and wicketkeeper-batsman Dane Cleaver, the series will be their first call-up. Bracewell, 31, led the season’s Super Smash scoring charts with 369 runs, while Cleaver came in second with 368 runs.
Meanwhile, Logan van Beek, who has won back-to-back Super Smash titles with the Wellington Firebirds. And Fred Klaassen, who has also played club cricket in New Zealand. Both have chosen in the Netherlands team for the next series.
Stephan Myburgh and Max O’Dowd, who were not in the team. For the Dutch’s most recent ODI series against Afghanistan in Doha in January 2022, are also returning.
Beginning March 25, the New Zealand-Netherlands series will aired live on Amazon Prime Video.
