In the next couple of months, the KNCB will give regular updates for our upcoming international cricket summer. The Dutch national team will not only play on home soil against big countries like New Zealand and Pakistan, they will also compete against the USA, Namibia and Oman at the cricket grounds of Kampong Utrecht, VCC Voorburg, and Excelsior’20 Schiedam in a quadrangular tournament.
We are hoping to welcome a lot of cricket fans at the grounds to support the Men in Orange. Let’s make it a summer to remember!

Meeting Pakistan clubs
On 19 February, the KNCB met with some of its Dutch clubs who have a lot of members with Pakistan roots. This evening was organised to share ideas regarding the ODI matches against Pakistan this summer. It was a fruitful meeting where we spoke about how to make everyone feel at home and how to combine the Pakistan culture with the Dutch, e.g. by offering a great choice in food and by organising kids activities. By doing this, all parties involved are trying to make the ODI Super League series a big success!
