Full Scorecard | Complete Commentary
Both Group A teams are now good batters who can confuse the formbook and secure their team’s “Super 12” berth ahead of pool favorites, former World Champion Sri Lanka, and Group A companion Namibia. Boasts a bowler.
The Dutch arrived at the T20 World Cup with little warm-up time, but their core group is playing in various franchise competitions around the world. In 2019, they won the qualifying tournament, defeated Ireland in the semi-finals, and then sent Papua New Guinea (PNG) in the finals.
But for Ireland, Ireland is a time of both promise and transition, especially as many golden generations who have established their side as the power of whiteball with over 50 cricket have retired or moved to coaching. Still, old hands like Paul Sterling and Kevin O’Brien add experience to the young and talented but raw team.
The Irish group has enough power hits, but the pace attack offers versatility and depth. However, balance can be an issue. Wicketkeeper Neillock may have up to six to accommodate more bowling options. It’s not yet clear if Ireland will stick to that setting or use part-time bowling options to configure a fifth set of overs.
However, regardless of the balance of the attacks, if the opening batters Sterling and O’Brien can function effectively in power play, Ireland could not only get out of Group A, but also make a good crack in Super 12. ′.
The strength of the Netherlands is pace attack, and reaching Super 12 can plague the best side of the world.

Dutch captain Pieter Seelaar said: I’m not saying Sri Lanka will pass, but they will have a hard time defeating all three of us. “
