Netherlands tour of Zimbabwe 2023, ZIM vs NED 2nd ODI Preview:
Netherlands are leading the 3-match ODI series 1-0 on the back of a thrilling 3-wicket win in the first ODI.
After being asked to bat first, the home side Zimbabwe were put under the pump. Dutch pace bowlers Fred Klaassen and Paul van Meekeren removed the top three cheaply in the first powerplay. Wesley Madhevere and Sikandar Raza got off to start but couldn’t carry on. The Dutch bowlers kept chipping wickets to leave Zimbabwe languishing at 98 for 7 in the 21st over before Masakadza joined Clive Madande to rebuild the innings. They put up a 70-run partnership. Some valuable contributions from tail-enders led Zimbabwe to post a formidable total of 249.
Just like the first innings where Zimbabwe recovered from 98/7 to post a formidable total, the Dutch looked down and out when they were reduced to 64/5 in the 21st over, but the lower-middle order batters played exceptionally well. Teja Nidamanuru kept the Dutch hopes alive. With Shariz Ahmad, he had a brilliant 110-run partnership and made sure the visitors get closer to the target. Paul Van Meekeren’s cameo of 9-ball 21 made sure the Dutch got over the line.
The home team Zimbabwe will look to bounce back in the next game and go level up in the series. Meanwhile, the Netherlands would look to complete a series win.
Key Players for Zimbabwe:
Sikandar Raza: The highly experienced all-rounder has been a consistent performer across all formats for his country. In the ODI format, he has scored 3746 runs in 121 innings at an average of 36.3 and with the ball, he has picked up 71 wickets. His vast experience will be the key for the home side.
Wellington Masakadza: The left-arm spinner was too good in the first ODI as he contributed both with the ball and bat. He bowled a superb spell of 10-0-36-3 and scored 34 runs with the bat as well.
Key Players for Netherlands:
Fred Klaassen: The left-arm medium fast was too good for the Dutch side. He picked up 3 wickets at an economy rate of 4.50 in his 10-over spell. His ability to generate swing at the top and deliver pin-point yorkers at the death makes him a key player for the Dutch side.
Teja Nidamanuru: The 28-year-old Indian-born Dutch cricketer was exceptional in the first ODI. He was adjudged the player of the match for his match-winning knock of 110* off 96 balls. He will look to carry on this form in the upcoming games as well.
