Netherlands vs Nepal Schedule-2018 Fixtures
As Netherlands take on Nepal for, we bring to you Netherlands vs Nepal Schedule-2018 Fixtures/Nepal vs Netherlands Schedule.
Nepal are scheduled to tour Netherlands for 2 ODIs this August. This tour marks Nepal’s first bilateral outing in Netherlands since 2015. The last time they did come here, they only managed to win 1 of the 4 T20s they played. This time though,they would play 2 ODIs. Interestingly this one would be the first bilateral ODI Series Nepal would play.This one promises to be an interesting series between two un-ranked associate sides.
Nepal have been on a rise for a couple of years now and this is evident that they were granted ODI status for the first time with their win over Papua New Guinea in the 2018 Cricket World Cup Qualifier 9th place play off encounter.
Netherlands do benefit from experience. They have been playing the format for long enough now. We have seen Netherlands perform, we have seen them stunning us-chasing down 190 plus target in 20 overs. They have been in good enough form in recent times- beating Ireland in 2 Consecutive games.
Netherlands and Nepal have faced each other in the same format a couple of times. In the Cricket League scheduled from 2015 to 2017, Netherlands played Nepal with both teams one apiece. The last time they did face off in ICC Qualifier 2018 for 7th/8th position play-off, Netherlands won by 45 runs. These 2 teams definitely have some sort of rivalry going on.
Netherlands vs Nepal Schedule
Apart from the 2 ODIs, Nepal would play 1 T20 and one practice match against MCC. Here is the schedule of ODI series.
Both Matches will be played at VRA Cricket Ground, Amstelveen .A good pitch, not the flatest in Netherlands. Teams have bundled up for below 250 on this ground so pretty much a low scoring strip.
