Wed, Jun 3, 2015 10:22 AM
The Netherlands men’s cricket squad is facing a busy summer.
On the fixture list are home series against Papua New Guinea (16-24 June, WCL Championship & I-Cup) and Nepal (4 T20’s, 30 June-3 July). The Netherlands also takes part in the ICC World T20 Qualifier in Ireland and Scotland in July (9-26 July).
Papua New Guinea:
Intercontinental Cup (4-day match):
16-19 June, VRA, Amsterdam
World Cricket League Championship (1-day, 50-overs):
22 June, VOC, Rotterdam
24 June, VRA, Amsterdam
Start time all matches: 11.00 hrs NL time.
4 Twenty20 fixtures:
30 June, VRA
1 July, VRA
2 July, VOC
3 July, VOC
Start time all matches: 17.00 hrs NL time.
During the T20 series v Nepal, special attention will be paid to the ongoing support from the
Dutch cricketing community for the victims of the earthquakes in Nepal.
The KNCB started an initiative in May called ‘Sixesfor Nepal’: for every six that will be hit
during the Summer of 2015 in the top two leagues (Topklasse & Hoofdklasse) and in any
International matches involving Dutch cricket teams, the KNCB will donate €6,-towards a
specific relief fund (tbd). During Nepal’s visit a cheque will be presented showing the number of
sixes hit and the amount raised until that moment.
Quite likely (the ICC still has to approve the suggested dates) Netherlands will host Scotland
in the WCL Championship en I-Cup early September.
