Netherlands (NED) face Nepal (NEP)

Preview:

The Netherlands had a mixed bag of performances in the recent home tri-series featuring Ireland and Scotland, finishing third with one win and three losses. Despite the rough patch, Scott Edwards and Co. managed an impressive result in their first warm-up match against Sri Lanka, defeating the former champions by 20 runs in Florida. Unfortunately, their second warm-up match was abandoned without a ball being bowled.


On the other hand, Nepal finished fourth in the ACC Men's T20I Premier Cup in April. The Asian side faced a comprehensive defeat by Canada in their first warm-up game, while their second match against co-hosts USA was also abandoned without a ball being bowled.


Pitch Report:

The opening encounter of the T20 World Cup 2024 at the Grand Prairie Stadium saw a high-scoring affair with the USA chasing down a 195-run target against Canada with ease. The pitch offered plenty of runs, and batting became easier in the second innings due to dew. However, with match 7 being a day game, dew won't be a factor. The pitch is expected to be a good one for batting, offering consistent bounce and some assistance for bowlers early on.

  • Max O'Dowd

He was the leading wicket-taker in the tri-series, with eight wickets in four matches at an average of 9.88. His ability to pick up key wickets will be vital for the Dutch side, and his four-over spell will play a crucial role in the outcome of the match.
