Netherlands Women would make their return to ODI cricket after 11 years as they play Ireland Women at home. There would be lots of expectations from the hosts at this historic moment and the Dutch players will need to keep all that out of their minds and focus on playing quality cricket in the middle. Ireland comes here after a series loss against South Africa, and they would look to strike form.  

It will be a test for Netherlands Women players especially their batters as most of their players haven’t played this format. Ireland Women have experience and some of them are clean hitters of the ball. It remains to be seen how the side fares in this game and can they restart their ODI cricket with a bang.

Netherlands Women Preview

Babette de Leede would lead her side in this game, and she would like to make a strong start. Almost all players are new to this format of the game and there would be intense pressure on them. Ireland has several experienced players on the side and de Leede would expect a good show from her players.  

Frederique Overdijk and Gwen Flowers have a big role to play as they open the batting for the side in this game. Babette de Leede is the most experienced player, and she will need to put up runs in the middle order with Robine Rijke and Caroline de Lange. Down the order, the side would need runs from the bats of Eva Lynch and Iris Zwilling.  

Their bowlers would have to get their lines right and a good show from Iris Zwilling and Isabel van der Woning with the new ball would be expected. Silver Siege, Lynch, and Frederique Overdijk will have to keep the scoring rate under check in the middle overs for the side to do well.  

Netherlands Women Predicted Playing XI:

Babette de Leede (c & wk), Annemijn van Beuge, Eva Lynch, Frederique Overdijk, Iris Zwilling, Isabel van der Woning, Juliet Post, Robine Rijke, Silver Siegers, Gwen Flowers, Caroline de Lange

Netherlands Women Actual Playing XI:

Robine Rijke, Annemijn Van Beuge, Silver Siegers, Juliet Post, Eva Lynch, Babette De Leede, Frederique Overdijk, Gwen Bloemen, Jolien van Vliet, Iris Zwilling, Isabel Van Der Woning

Ireland Women Preview

Laura Delany would be looking for a positive start in the series. They lost the last series at home against South Africa Women 0-3. Their batters had struggled in that series and   Delany shall look to put that behind. They have enjoyed a good record against Netherlands Women and the Irish skipper shall look to draw inspiration from that win.  

Leah Paul and Gaby Lewis had struggled with their form against South Africa and the pair shall need to offer a good start in this game. Rachael Delaney and Mary Waldron will look to anchor the innings and set up partnerships with Sophie MacMohan and Arlene Kelly in the middle order. The side would also expect to see runs from Orla Prendergast and Georgina Dempsey down the order.  

Jane Maguire and Arlene Kelly would like to use the early assistance from the track and out the hosts on a the backfoot with wickets. Rachael Delaney and Georgina Dempsey would need to keep the batters quiet in the middle overs. Cara Murray and Leah Paul balance the bowling attack with their variety. 

Ireland Women Predicted Playing XI:

Laura Delany (c), Leah Paul, Gaby Lewis, Amy Hunter, Orla Prendergast, Mary Waldron (wk), Cara Murray, Georgina Dempsey, Sophie MacMohan, Rachael Delaney, Arlene Kelly

Ireland Women Actual Playing XI:

Leah Paul, Gaby Lewis, Georgina Dempsey, Rachel Delaney, Arlene Kelly, Laura Delany, Shauna Kavanagh, Mary Waldron, Amy Hunter, Orla Prendergast, Cara Murray

Weather Conditions

The skies over Amstelveen would be slightly cloudy on August 22. The wicket has a lot of moisture, and the conditions would make it a challenge for the batters. Fast bowlers would get the ball to swing and under these circumstances. The side batting first would aim to put up 250 runs on the board.  

Venue Details

VRA Cricket Ground, Amstelveen has a lively surface and we have seen fast bowlers do well at this venue. Batters who spend time on the crease and get adjusted to the pace of the wicket have also made runs. Spinners don’t see much assistance from the surface, and they need to solely rely on their variations. 

Toss: To Bowl

The wicket is likely to help the bowlers early in the game and batting conditions shall improve as the game progresses. We don’t expect this to be a high scoring game. The side winning the toss is likely to opt for bowling first and aim to dismiss the opponents for a small total.  

Netherlands Women have a massive challenge on their hands. They are playing this format after a long time and their record against Ireland has been disastrous. The side will have to bat well and plan their long stay at the crease. Irish players have more match experience in this format of the game. This would put them slightly ahead of their opponents.
