Points Table


Current Form Netherlands:

Netherlands performed superbly in the recently concluded ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2023. However, their ODI form isn’t too great. They lost against Pakistan by a margin of 3-0 in August last year.

Players to look out for:

1. Max O’Dowd- He has performed superbly in the last 1 year and more. He leads from the front and takes his team to a flier most often than not.

2. Fred Klaassen- His exploits in Vitality Blast T20 are well known Fred Klaasen can be a useful bowler when the team needs it the most.

Current Form Zimbabwe:

Zimbabwe have been in a great form in ODI cricket currently. They have tied the ODI series against Ireland at 1-1 in January this year. Previously, they had lost against Australia by 2-1 but Zimbabwe showed a great fight.

Players to look out for:

1. Sikandar Raza – He is the talk of the world currently and his record in ODI cricket proves that he is the finest of all in Zimbabwe cricket with the bat.

2. Richard Ngarava- He is good with both the old as well as the new ball. Ngarava will hold the key in the upcoming series against Netherlands.
