Back-to-back twenty20 wins for Netherlands

Netherlands won Friday’s back-to-back Twenty20 internationals against Denmark

Netherlands won Friday’s back-to-back Twenty20 internationals against Denmark. The games, which replaced a planned ODI, were agreed to assist the Dutch in their preparations for August’s Associates Twenty20 competition in Ireland.

In the first game, Denmark made a reasonable 153 but Netherlands eased home by six wickets.

Netherlands batted first in the second match and exploited a weak Danish attack to plunder 239, Peter Borren leading the charge with 88, with stout support from Tim de Groot (60). Michael Pedersen held Denmark’s reply together with an unbeaten 94 but they managed only 182 for 2, losing by 57 runs.

    That is an impressive win in the second game for the Netherlands. I can really see them making the next step to test cricket in the next few years. despite a few in consistent performances, they have grown a lot in the last two years.

    Were these matches proper t20 internationals.

    ED: They are not considered in international Twenty20 records as they were between two Associate countries.
