Netherlands’ pre-World Cup training camp to be held in Alur

In September, the Netherlands squad will hold a 12-day camp close to Bengaluru. The Netherlands Cricket and the Karnataka State Cricket Association have organized the pre-World Cup assembly of the Dutch men, the unexpected qualifiers for the event. The camp will be held at the KSCA’s Alur site from September 19–October 1.

After learning about the proposal from a few Dutch authorities, a KSCA official verified the development. Plans exist to extend the camp by a few weeks, maybe starting in the first week of September, although this has not been confirmed.

Despite all odds, the team managed by Scot Edwards was able to beat stronger full-member nations like the West Indies and Zimbabwe to qualify for the World Cup, which runs from October 5 to November 19. They overwhelmingly defeated Scotland in a crucial World Cup qualifying match at Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, earning themselves a spot by surpassing the Scots in net run rate. With five wickets and 123 runs, Bas de Leede was without a doubt Man of the Match.

What an amazing feat has been accomplished by the Dutch team! Before, it appeared impossible to qualify in the midst of so many Full Members. The Dutch cricket team’s official website praised the Orange for their success, saying they “bellied all the doomsayers with brilliant game plans and unprecedented fighting spirit and deserved to make it to the final tournament.” They participated in the 1996, 2003, 2007, and 2011 ODI World Cups, making this their sixth appearance.

On October 6 in Hyderabad, the Netherlands is set to face Pakistan in their opening matchup. On October 9, they will play New Zealand in Hyderabad; on October 17, South Africa will play in Dharamsala; on October 21, Sri Lanka will play in Lucknow; on October 25, Australia will play in Delhi; on October 28, Bangladesh will play in Kolkata; on November 3, Afghanistan will play in Lucknow; on November 8, England will play in Pune; and on November 11, they will play the hosts, India, in Bengaluru.

It goes without saying that the timetable of a few of their games may vary given that the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the International Cricket Council (ICC) have not yet published the World Cup’s official schedule.
