The Netherlands cricket is all set to welcome the English cricket team in order to contest a bilateral 3 ODI matches series between both the teams. Netherlands vs England ODI series 2022 will be started on June 17th, 2022, and will conclude on 22nd June 2022. This is a small tour of England which will be completed within 6 days. The series was actually initiated to play in May 2021 but it had to cancel due to a pandemic.
All three ODI matches of the series will be contested at the same venue i.e, VRA Cricket Ground, Amstelveen. The first ODI will start on the 17th June 2022, then the 2nd match will be contested on 19th June and the series will end with the 3rd match on 22nd June 2022. This series will be an integral part of the ICC Cricket World Cup Super League.
Most probably, the Netherlands will fight their 3 ODIs under the leadership of Pieter Seelaar and Ryan Campbell will play the role of the coach. On the other hand, the English team will be involved in the series under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan. Currently, the Netherlands is sitting at the 11th position in the ICC ODI team ranking and England is at the number 2nd position. It will be a good opportunity for the Netherlands players to learn from the English team through this series.
The Netherlands played their first ODI match against New Zealand at Reliance Stadium, Vadodara; 17 February 1996. Since then, they have contested 86 ODI matches in which they got the victory on 34 occasions and lost 47 matches with a winning percentage of 42.07. In terms of head to head in an ODI against England, the Netherlands faced England 3 times and got defeated in all 3 ODIs.
The Netherlands cricket players are less experienced and skilled in front of seasoned English players but they should take the advantage of and learn as much as possible from England. So it would be interesting for Netherlands fans fans to watch the Dutch players playing against England in their homeland.
