Netherlands team arrive in India for practice matches
The Netherlands cricket team arrived in India last week for practice matches against a local club.

The 14-member will play four 50-over matches and two Twenty20 games against Ferozepur-based Blue Star Cricket Club from 30 November to 5 December.

Coach Peter Drinnen spoke to IANS:"We have eight national team players while others play in prestigious leagues back home. We are sure to give a tough fight in the tournament."

"We have come here with a young team in order to give them maximum exposure. We would love to play in Indian conditions and the experience will help us to put up a better show in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 in the sub-continent."
