Netherlands

Dutch name side to tour India

Martin Williamson

A strong Dutch squad will fly to India next weekend to play four Twenty20 matches and three fifty-over games.

The side will be led by Peter Borren, and is largely made up of players who have represented their country over the summer. Only four of them, however – Borren, Ryan ten Doeschate, Adeel Raja, and Darron Reekers – were in the World Cup squad.

dutch are taking cricket very seriously. still they are not matured with this game. they will gain lots of experience through the india tour which will help them to improve cricket.

Tendo is my favourite! Maurits is in but his twin brother Mark is injured.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
