New Zealand will face the Netherlands in a one-off T20I at Mclean Park in Napier on March 25th. The host is led by Tom Latham, who has played a leading role in the past. However, the 12 regular members of the Black Caps Limited Over Scheme have not been selected for the next series.
Nevertheless, it is a great opportunity for young people to prove their energy and they are trying to make the most of their opportunity for the Dutch. Meanwhile, the Netherlands hopes to get rid of the great confusion about the new look of New Zealand costumes with this only T20I encountered between the two.
A promising team led by Pieter Seelaar wants to leave no stones for depleted kiwis as they are trying to improve performance as far as the shortest format is concerned.
