Netherlands vs Nepal Team Analysis

Netherlands

The Netherlands are placed in Group D alongside Nepal, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh. The Dutch look the better team on paper against Nepal and can shock the other teams in the Group as well. They are led by Scott Edwards and several players in the team have experience playing in ICC events.

Nepal

Nepal is another associate nation that managed to qualify for the tournament playing the Qualifiers. They lost the final of the Qualifier against Omen in the Super Over. After that, Nepal has played against teams like, the Netherlands, Namibia, Canada, Hong Kong, and other Asian teams in one-off tournaments.

Nepal lost their first warm-up match to Canada and their next match against the USA was washed out. Given the group that they are in, they will need to play very good cricket to qualify for the next round.

Netherlands vs Nepal Key Factors 

Pitch Conditions 

The Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas will host four games in the T20 World Cup. The first game between the USA and Canada was a high-scoring encounter which was won by the USA side chasing.

The pitches used are drop-in pitches relayed and brought in from other parts of the world. The outfield also looked very fast from how the first game transpired. We can be in for another high-scoring contest.

Form and Fitness 

The Netherlands looks the better prepared and the more experienced of the two teams on paper. Nepal not having played against top teams in recent times might find it hard to compete in this tournament. This is still a learning curve for the Asian side.

There are no injury concerns for both teams leading into this game. The games come thick and fast and thus the players need to be at the peak of their fitness.

Tactical Acumen

The first game between the two sides will be a big indicator as to what the captains of the respective teams will think about in this game. The Netherlands' overall experience in playing big games will give their skipper enough trust in his players.
