Netherlands have announced a squad of twelve for their Intercontinental Cup match against Ireland in Rotterdam on July 9.

They miss the services of Eric Szwarczynski, whose broken toe has yet to recover but, more crucially, Ryan ten Doeschate who is committed to Essex. There was a recall for Nick Statham, however, who was part of the Netherlands team who lost to Scotland last year.

Netherlands only have an outside chance of reaching the final of the competition, unless they secure maximum points against Ireland and Kenya.

Squad Jeroen Smits (capt, wk), Peter Borren, Mudassar Bukhari, Daan van Bunge, Tom de Grooth, Maurits Jonkman, Alexei Kervezee, Geert-Maarten Mol, Edgar Schiferli, Pieter Seelaar, Nick Statham, Bas Zuiderent
