Frederique Overdijk

Record-breaker Overdijk sets the tone for ICC T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier

ICC T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier

On the first day of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Europe Qualifier, supported by Dream11, Netherlands' Frederique Overdijk grabbed all the headlines for her record-breaking spell of 4-2-3-7, the best figures in the T20I history.


The magnificent spell reduced France to just 33 runs as they were bowled out in 17.3 overs. The Netherlands chased down the total in under four overs to register their first win of the day.

Earlier in the day, the Dutch fell short against Scotland after they could only put up 98 runs in their quota of 20 overs batting first. Despite losing their way towards the end, opener Sarah Bryce's 36-ball 46 ensured that Scotland got across the line with more than three overs to spare.

In the second match of the day, Gaby Lewis stole the show with an unbeaten 60-ball 105* against Germany and became the first Ireland Women's player to score a T20I century. Chasing 197 was always going to be a tough ask for the German players as they finished the innings with just 32 runs, falling short by a massive margin of 164 runs.

More action awaits over the weekend in the T20 World Cup Europe Qualifiers. Here are the remaining fixtures:

27 August 2021 - Germany v France (10:30); Ireland v Scotland (10:30); Netherlands v Germany (15:30)
