Team India escaping from Netherlands, these five players can change the course of the match

Team India started their campaign with a bang in the T20 World Cup 2022 with a four-wicket win against arch-rivals Pakistan. Now the Indian team has to play its next match in the Super-12 against the Netherlands on the Sydney ground on October 27. Team India looks very strong in this series, but taking Netherlands lightly can be a big mistake.

The Netherlands team had made it to the Super-12 stage by performing brilliantly in the qualifying round. If seen, the Netherlands team led by Scott Edwards also has some good players who are eager to perform well against the world No.1 T20 team. Let us know about five such superstar players of the Netherlands who can turn the tide of the match and from whom the Indian team will have to be careful.

Colin Ackerman: The Indian team has to be careful with this all-rounder too. Colin Ackerman has played 18 T20 Internationals for the Netherlands so far, in which he has 379 runs in his name at an average of 25.26. Ackerman, who specializes in off-break bowling with the right hand, has also taken 7 wickets in T20 Internationals. Ackerman, 31, also has experience of playing Under-19 cricket for county and South Africa.

Bass de Leide: All eyes will be on this 22-year-old all-rounder in the India-Netherlands match. Bass de Leede has featured in 27 T20 Internationals for the Netherlands. During this, he has scored 575 runs at an average of 31.94, which included four half-centuries. Talking about bowling, 23 wickets at an average of 16.39 are recorded in the name of Bass de Leede. Bass de Leede’s cousin Bebet de Leede and father Tim de Leede have also represented the Netherlands.

Roolof van der Merwe: You will also be familiar with the 37-year-old all-rounder Roolof van der Merwe. Merv has now become a well-known name in the Netherlands cricket circuit. Merv played international cricket for South Africa in the early stages. In 2009, he made his mark in the debut match against Australia and in addition to scoring 48 runs in 30 balls, he also took the important wicket of David Hussey, showing the magic of spin. However, his association with the team did not last long and he later started playing for the Dutch team. Van der Merwe has so far taken 42 wickets in 36 T20 matches for the Netherlands besides scoring 403 runs.

Max O’Dowd: Opener batsman Max O’Dowd is performing brilliantly in T20 cricket. Dodd played a brilliant innings of 71 runs in the qualifying round match against Sri Lanka. The 28-year-old Dodd has so far scored 1484 runs in 54 T20 Internationals for the Netherlands at an average of 30.28. During this, a century and 10 half-centuries came out of Dodd’s bat. Max O’Dowd is the only batsman to score a century in T20 cricket for the Netherlands. Not only this, Dodd is also the most successful batsman of the Dutch team in T20 International. In the match against India, the Dutch team will be expecting a big innings from Max O’Dowd.

Paul van Meeckeren: 29-year-old Paul van Meekeren is the most successful bowler of the Netherlands team in T20 Internationals. Right-arm fast bowler Meekeran has so far taken 58 wickets in 54 T20 Internationals. During this, his average was 21.46 and the economy rate was 6.94. Meekeran has taken four wickets in T20 Internationals on two occasions. Meekaran, who has participated in the CPL, can prove to be a headache for the Indian batsmen.

Netherlands squad for T20 World Cup: Scott Edwards (captain), Colin Ackermann, Shariz Ahmed, Logan van Beek, Tom Cooper, Brandon Glover, Tim van der Guggen, Fred Klaasen, Bass de Leede, Paul van Meeckeren, Roelof van der Merv, Stephen Myberg, Teja Nidamanuru, Max O’Dowd, Tim Pringle, Vikram Singh.
