Dutch cricketers will most certainly remember the famous T20-win over England in June 2009 in the opening match of the ICC T20 World Cup at Lord’s in London. Headlines like ‘Clogged by the Dutch’ filled the sport pages in the English newspapers the following day.
Less well-known is the second T20 victory over England in Chittagong (Bangladesh) during the 2013 T20 World Cup. The Dutch still have a 100% victory percentage vs England in T20 cricket.
The two teams will face each other for the first time since 2013, but now in three ODI matches. The last ever one day match against England took place in 1998, when the Dutch team beat England in Amsterdam at VRA.
Fielding top players like Root, Bairstow, Anderson, Broad, Butler, Crawley and Stokes, England will undoubtedly try to entertain the supporters – and win!
