    It is good for Dutch cricket to have youngsters like him. I agree that the ICC should spend some more to support those countries. KNCB should also organise more and make the Dutch leauge more attractive. I wonder how many players are paid. Ad if they are, how much? THINK ABOUT IT KNCB

    its good to see.

    Holland need all their best players in order to qualify for the next world cup.

    if Holland get the right support from the ICC and promote cricket in schools and clubs they could be a fair chance of playing test cricket in the next 10 years.

    but they have to promote cricket into a major sport and look after their juniors.

    the ICC should have more than 4 minnow positions at the next world cup.
