In a crucial Group Stage encounter at the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, the Netherlands triumphed over Nepal by 6 wickets at the Grand Prairie Stadium. Opting to bowl first after winning the toss, the Netherlands restricted Nepal to a modest total of 106 runs before successfully chasing it down with 8 balls to spare.

Tim Pringle shines with the ball

Nepal’s innings was a struggle from the outset as they found it difficult to cope with the disciplined Dutch bowling attack. The top-order batsmen failed to build any significant partnerships, with Kushal Bhurtel and Aasif Sheikh departing early for 7 and 4 runs, respectively. Anil Sah contributed 11 runs, but it was Rohit Kumar Paudel who stood out with a resilient 35 off 37 balls, featuring 5 boundaries. Unfortunately, his efforts were not enough to anchor the innings as wickets kept tumbling around him. The middle and lower order offered little resistance, with only Gulshan Jha and KC Karan providing brief moments of hope with scores of 14 and 17. Ultimately, Nepal were bowled out for 106 in 19.2 overs.

The Dutch bowlers delivered a superb collective performance, with Tim Pringle and Logan van Beek being the pick of the bowlers. Pringle’s left-arm spin claimed 3 wickets for just 20 runs in his 4 overs, while van Beek’s pace yielded 3 wickets for 18 runs in 3.2 overs. Paul van Meekeren and Bas de Leede also made significant contributions, each taking 2 wickets and maintaining pressure on the Nepalese batters throughout their spells. Vivian Kingma, although wicketless, was economical and kept the batsmen in check.

Max O’Dowd takes the Netherlands home

Chasing a target of 107, the Netherlands’ innings was anchored by a solid performance from opener Max O’Dowd, who scored unbeaten 54 runs off 48 balls. His composed knock, which included 4 fours and 1 six, provided the stability needed at the top of the order. Despite losing Michael Levitt early for 1 run, O’Dowd found support from Vikramjit Singh, who added 22 runs off 28 balls. Sybrand Engelbrecht and Scott Edwards contributed 14 and 5 runs, respectively, before De Leede saw the team home with an unbeaten 11 off 10 balls.

Nepal’s bowlers, despite the low target, put in a commendable effort to make the chase challenging. Sompal Kami was economical, taking 1 wicket for 18 runs in his 4 overs, while Dipendra Singh Airee also impressed with 1 wicket for 6 runs in 2 overs. Abhinash Bohara managed to pick up a wicket but conceded 37 runs in 4.4 overs, while Sagar Dhakal and KC Karan bowled economically but without success.

In conclusion, the Netherlands’ well-rounded performance, spearheaded by Pringle’s superb bowling and O’Dowd’s steady batting, secured them a 6-wicket victory over Nepal.
