The Dutch women are set to play a Quadrangular T20 International tournament against Cricket Ireland, Cricket Scotland, and the Cricket Association of Thailand. The tournament, to be played in Netherlands, will see each of the four sides play six T20 matches in seven days, from 8 to 14 August 2019, at Salland Cricket Club in Deventer (www.sallandcc.nl).
The sides will all be featuring in the T20 Women’s World Cup Qualifier tournament that will be held in Scotland in late August – from which the top two teams will progress to the T20 World Cup in Australia in February 2020.
All matches will be live streamed on the KNCB website and the KNCB YouTube channel.
Head Coach of KNCB Women’s cricket team, Sean Trouw, : “The series is a great opportunity for the Dutch women’s team to play more competitive cricket and for us to be playing at home is a great chance to show what women’s cricket is all about. This series will be a great opportunity to grow the game locally and hopefully inspire a few more girls to take up the game. Working together with Cricket Ireland, Cricket Scotland and Thailand Cricket Association to make this happen has been amazing. This is a great initiative for the women’s game and is a real boost to our cricket calendar for this year. If all goes well this series will set us in good stead for the global T20 qualifier to be held in Scotland at the end of August.”
