It has a forgettable outing for the Netherlands in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Two losses in two consecutive matches meant that the Netherlands are out of the race of the Super 12s. The Netherlands began their campaign with a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of Ireland.
They exhibited a much better performance in the next game but a heroic knock from David Wiese took the game away from them. They went on to lose that game by 6 wickets.
The Dutch nation is slated to play their third game against Sri Lanka on Friday at Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Here’s a look at our predicted playing XI of the Netherlands for the much-anticipated contest.
SL vs NED: Netherlands (NED) Predicted Playing XI against Sri Lanka’s (SL) – ICC T20 World Cup 2021, Match 12
Openers: Max ODowd and Stephan Myburgh
Max ODowd has been the standout batsman for the Netherlands in the tournament. He played a valiant 51 off 47 in the first game and followed it up with a brilliant 70-run knock off 56 balls. Myburgh got the start but couldn’t convert that into a big score. He made 17 off 16 and the team is likely to persist with the same opening combination for the match on Friday.
