On Friday, Netherlands announced the squad for the upcoming 3-match ICC CWC Super League series against Ireland. Netherlands selected 15 players for the three ODI’s on Wednesday June 2, Friday June 4 and Monday 7 June at Kampong in Utrecht.
Alongside county trio Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen and Brandon Glover, the squad features exciting youngster Musa Nadeem Ahmad, who will be hoping to make his debut.
Squad: Pieter Seelaar (c), Scott Edward, Max O’Dowd, Stephan Myburgh, Ben Cooper, Bas de Leede, Timm van der Gugten, Logan van Beek, Fred Klaassen, Philippe Boissevain, Vivian Kingma, Brandon Glover, Tobias Visée, Musa Nadeem Ahmad and Saqib Zulfiqar.
Speaking at the announcement Head coach Ryan Campbell said, “Our first appearance in the much talked about Super League is no doubt the most important page in the Dutch Cricket History book. We hope to open this chapter with a really competitive series against our great friends and adversaries Ireland.”
“We welcome back Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen and Brandon Glover from county duties and I expect them to form a potent fast bowling combination with Logan van Beek and Vivian Kingma, whose form has been outstanding so far this season,” he added.
“We will continue to back our best young talent and I’m extremely pleased to add Musa Nadeem to our long list of recent debutants. His form in the Topklasse has been outstanding as well as his hard work throughout our long hiatus from International Cricket due to Covid. This will no doubt be an extremely tough series, but I know the players are ready to go and it should be an exciting week of cricket,” he concluded.
