Nepal to make ODI debut against the Netherlands

 

Nepal will play first two ODIs against Netherlands on the 1st and 3rd of August. The two matches will take place at as-yet-undisclosed venues in the Netherlands immediately following the two nations’ T20 tri-series with the MCC at Lords, which is scheduled for the 29th of July.

The games will be the first ODIs hosted in the Netherlands since the Dutch welcomed South Africa for a one-off match at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen in May 2013, and will also mark the Netherlands’ return to ODI cricket after an absence of almost five years, their last recognised ODI coming against Canada at the World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand in January 2014, the tournament where they lost their status.

Nepal’s most recent visit to the Low Countries was in August of 2016, when the two sides shared honours in two List A internationals in the fourth round of the World Cricket League Championship.
