Bas de Leede:
Bas de Leede, a talented all-rounder, entered the tournament with high expectations following his outstanding performances in the qualifiers in Zimbabwe where he won the match single handeldly for his team, courtesy of his brilliant five wicket haul and a century in the same match. However, he has yet to make a significant impact in the tournament and will be eager to showcase his skills in the last match.
Scott Edwards has been a standout performer for the Dutch, scoring crucial runs and displaying excellent wicket-keeping skills. His ability to handle spinners in the middle overs makes him a key player for his team.
