ICC T20 Qualifier 2019 Match 3 Squad Comparison


Netherlands lost both warm-up matches and will now be taking on Kenya in their first ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 match. R van der Merwe and PM Seelaar picked 2 wickets each against Ireland. Merwe and T van der Gugten had economy rates of 6 and 6.60 as both picked 2 wickets each and helped restrict Ireland to 156-8. Netherlands batting line-up collapsed chasing 157 runs while R ten Doeschate became the top team batsman with 46 off 35 balls. Opener T Visee (30) and R van der Merwe (16) were the only other batsmen with double-digit scores.

While the Netherlands put an improved batting performance in their second warm-up match, they failed to defend the target in a close encounter against Oman. B Copper was top batsman for the side in this match scoring 60 off 47 balls, while Ryan ten Doeschate played a crucial inning scoring unbeaten 36 off 15 balls at number 5. Defending 169 runs, the Netherlands skipper Pieter Seeler used 6 bowlers all of whom picked a wicket each. However, the bowling effort wasn’t enough as Oman chased down the target with 4 wickets in hand and 2 balls remaining.


Like the Netherlands, Kenya too lost both their warm-up matches and showed a better batting performance in the second game. Dhiren Gondaria (35) and Collins Obuya (49) were the top scorers for Kenya at number 1, and 3 in the line-up respectively. These innings helped Kenya reach 127-6 in 20 overs batting first against Jersey. While defending 127 runs, Kenya used 8 bowling options, 3 of whom bowled 1 Over each bowling at economies of 13, 14 and 12 r.p.o. Oman ended chasing the target down in 14th Over with 7 wickets in hand.

In the next match, Kenya bowled first against Canada and ended up conceding 191 runs for 8 wickets. E Otieno was economical and successful with the ball for Kenya finishing with 2 for 28 in 4 overs, while Shem Ngoche also picked 2 wickets in 3 overs for 29 runs. Chasing a big total, the top-order couldn’t make any significant contributions to the chase. Dhiren Gondoria, Irfan Karim and Collins Obuya were out for under 10 runs while opening batsman Alex Obanda was the top scorer for Kenya with 46 off 34 balls. Rakep Patel added quick 38 off 20 balls at number 5 impacting the run chase a little. However, without any big partnerships and big innings from other middle-order batsmen Kenya fell short of the target and lost by 26 runs. It will be a tough challenge for Kenya going up against the Netherlands given their bowling and batting inconsistencies.
