This is Netherlands’ second appearance at an ICC World Twenty20. Its first was in 2009 and was memorable for a stunning four-wicket, last-ball victory in the opening match of the tournament over the host England in front of a capacity crowd at Lord’s. Peter Borren, now the captain, scored a vital 30 in that match and Daan van Bunge is another from that side who also played in its final match of the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier UAE 2013 last November. It finished fifth in that tournament after beating Hong Kong by seven wickets. But its key qualifying match came against Scotland, which it beat by eight wickets. Wicket-keeper Wesley Barresi, coming in at number 3, made 75 off 47 balls as Netherlands won with 13 balls to spare. Barresi was Netherlands’ leading batsman in the qualifying tournament, with 264 runs at a strike-rate of 134.01, while seam bowler Ahsan Malik was the leading bowler in the whole competition with 21 wickets at an average of only 10.00 and an economy rate of only 5.67. Netherlands has qualified for the ICC CWC on four occasions, most recently in 2011, but did not secure qualification for the 2015 tournament.
