Netherlands vs Ireland Preview:

After a pandemic-enforced wait of well over a year. The Netherlands are finally set to make their entry into the Cricket World Cup Super League this week. When they welcome their former Associate sparring partners Ireland for a three-match ODI series at Utrecht. As the only qualifier in the competition, their debut marks the culmination of a six-year campaig. That started at World Cricket League Division 2 in Namibia back in 2015.

Their victory saw them return to the Associate top-flight. Where they went on to win the final edition of the WCL Championship to reclaim ODI status and secure the only Associates spot in the top-tier 13-team Super League alongside the 12 Full Members.

Ireland will look at the series as a chance to reverse a poor start to their Super League campaign. Their fifty-overs record against the Dutch unblemished by defeat since 2007. Their most recent ODI encounter was back in 2013 however, where a dramatic tie in the second of their two-match WCL Championship series saw Ireland secure their qualification for the 2015 World Cup. While the Netherlands would eventually fall just short, the series in retrospect marking the beginning of the Dutch descent that would bottom out at Windhoek in January of 2015.

Since then the Netherlands have held the upper hand in white-ball cricket, though the two sides have only met in T20 internationals for the past few years the Dutch have won seven of their last nine matches, starting with the famous win at Sylhet that sent Ireland out of the 2014 World T20.

It is a rather unwelcome irony that the Netherlands, after years of preparation, finally find themselves forced to name an understrength and somewhat undercooked squad for arguably the most important matches in their history. A combination of travel-restrictions and uncooperative Counties sees the hosts missing practically their entire first-choice middle order for the series.

With Michael Rippon now based in New Zealand in pursuit of a black cap, and Covid-related travel regulations rule out a trip back-and-forth to the Netherlands. Meanwhile Ryan ten Doeschate, Colin Ackermann and Roelof van der Merwe are retained by their respective Counties across the North Sea, leaving the Dutch batting looking alarmingly threadbare.

Match Prediction – Who Will Win

Netherlands are expected to win this match.

Netherlands vs Ireland Stats

  1. Shakib needs one wicket to become the highest wicket-taker for Bangladesh in ODIs. But he needs two more to overtake Mashrafe Mortaza as the one with the most wickets from his country in the format, as Mortaza took 269 for Bangladesh and one for Asia XI against Africa XI in 2007.
  2. When he reached 113 in the second ODI, Rahim became the fourth cricketer to cross 6000 ODI runs as a wicketkeeper. Kumar Sangakkara, MS Dhoni and Adam Gilchrist are those above him.

Weather and Pitch Conditions

Bangladesh chose to bat first in both matches as the pitches appeared two-paced, thus hardly encouraging big-hitting. The pitches also seemed to get slower as the game progressed, and it is unlikely to be too different in the third ODI. The weather forecast is mostly for clear conditions in Dhaka.
