In the 4 day match of ICC Intercontinental Cup 2006 Netherlands are really hammering the Kenyans in their own backyard. After day one Netherlands scored 326/7 and seems to be in a strong position. Well, this is not yet the right time to comment but I feel Kenya bowling is pretty ordinary which was evident in recent BD tour.

It seems that Kenya has to go a long way to reach BD standard.

Although Cricket is not a popular sport in NL but still they got some good infrastructure for that. Even in a small town (where i am living presently) have couple of grounds with practice facilities and outfield smooth like silk.

This is a sport fanatic country and they play almost every possible sport the world can offer. One day this Dutch team can become a stronger opponent to every body.

DLS van Bunge scored total of 32 in 103 balls with 4 fours and a six. So basically he scored 10 runs in 98 balls :) and the partnership was 130. Classic display of how to play the longer version of the game. This will be a dead game if the kenya scores 250+.

Guys, both are very poor teams. The teams that you need to keep an eye on are Scotland, Ireland, and maybe Namibia. In future, watch out for Kenya in the next world cup (2011) - I will be surprised if Nepal don't register their first one day win against one of the 10 test teams (Zimbabwe really doesn't count at this point).

From January 1 2006, the ICC has approved that the top six Associates of Kenya, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, Bermuda and the Netherlands will all have ODI match status whenever they play each other or a Full member.


Source (http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/other/content/story/231520.html)

Holland is one of the 6 countries to get this status from the beginning of this year. So, in theory, they do have ODI status.

I remember young Bas Zuiderent playing in 96 world cup and showing a lot of promise. Good to see that he's still around.

Tikolo is a man possessed.
Monumental innings from him. Its still a pity that a player of his calibre will not be able to play test cricket. I wish someone in our team develops such a temperament for long innings.
(Ofcourse i understand the quality of bowling, but nonetheless, 186* is a huge score when all the other players r falling like a pack of cards).

I know this is irrelevant now but for the future...

In four day matches the follow-on can be enforced if the lead is 150+ (not 200 like five day matches).

BC thread on follow-on rules (http://banglacricket.com/alochona/viewthread.php?tid=15554#pid256675)

So basically Kenya just escaped follow on at 324. So now they are at 332. Anyways, excellent knock by Tikolo.

Actually they needed 325 but it is all history now, as Tikolo proved playing in Bangladeshi domestic cricket actually kept him in shape :D. So we can be happy abour our domestic cricket:bravo:.

Thanks to Ongondo, Tikolo could play such an innings and save us and Kenya both the embarassment.

Carte Blanche
April 3, 2006, 11:19 AM
Points to Ponder for Holland:

1. Great batting, but the scoring rate was a little on the slower side.
2. I acknowledge the talent and ability of Tikolo, but when you have them right by the scruff of their neck - you ought to go for the kill. They should have wrapped up the tail. This recovery shouldn't have been allowed.
3. Good game overall with decent batting practice.

Worries for Kenya:

1. Tikolo once again showed his worth. I know there is no overnight solution for this, but the team will have a huge hole to fill once aging Tikolo is to call it a day. Their administration has the work cut out.
2. Poor batting by the top order, as usual.
3. Bowling is still toothless. Once again, there is no quick solution to this. Their infrastructure needs a massive overhaul at the domestic level.

How does BD react to it?

We have nothing to worry about. For the time being we can put our rivalry with Kenya to rest since it is safe to say that they are struggling to keep up with the "elite" cricketing level. Holland, on the other hand, is showing a lot of promise. Us fans will have to carefully follow Holland's cricketing development from now on.

As for Holland's cricketing development, they used to beat Bangladesh on a regular basis. We had to fight (with some serious luck) for a final spot in the 1997 ICC Trophy against Holland. Look at the score from the last group match - BD won by 3 wickets (D/L method) (http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1996-97/OTHERS+ICC/ICCT97/ICCT97-MATCHES/GROUP-F/BDESH_NL_ICCT_04APR1997.html)

Chasing 171 in the 50 overs match, we were in all sorts of trouble at 15 for 4. Match was interrupted for 2 hours and when it resumed, our target was reduced to 141 from 33 overs. If it weren't for Akram Khan (68* off 92) we could have easily lost that match. Akram got a good supporting role from Nannu (22 off 48, 77/5) but it wasn't enough and looked like we were heading for a loss when Enamul (86/6) couldn't hold on. Saiful Islam (18 off 20, 136/7) hung around long enough to help Akram get us closer to a win.

If rain hadn't changed the scenario, who knows what would have happened. Holland was pretty unlucky because of rain. They were forced to draw a match due to rain and lost two matches when the opponents (Bangladesh needed on 141 and either scotland or ireland needed only 87 to win) were given a reduced targets.

Here's another link. Look at the results of all matches played by Bangladesh, Kenya, Holland, and Bermuda (our world cup opponent) : click here for 1994 results (http://usa.cricinfo.com/link_to_database/ARCHIVE/WORLD_CUPS/ICCT94/ICCT_FEB-MAR1994_RESULTS-SUMMARY.html)

Notice the 47 run defeat of Bangladesh against Holland. Holland scored 205 all out and bowled us out for 158 on the 48th over. They had us at 103 for 8 at one stage, the tail wagged before caving in.

So, there you go. Holland played the World Cup before us and used to beat us at will. Considering where the two sides are at right now, I think we are doing pretty good.

I do vividly remember that match against Holland, Tehsin. If it weren't for Akram's heroics, our cricket may well have been on different waters today. To be fair, that whole tournament was marred by rain. Whoever thought holding a tournament of this significance in Malaysia during the monsoon was a good idea!! I also remember that we had our match against Ireland washed out due to rain after we restricted them to a <200 score. So it's only fair that Rain Gods tried to help us the next game :)

Heaven - chinese cook ? Hmmm, how about a chef who specializes in Chinese, Italian, Desi, and ANY dessert (chocolates/pastry) you can think of ? The rest are fine. ;) - Sorry, off topic.

You are right, BD fans owe our current success on Akram's heroics that day.

The final was tough. We really fought to win that trophy. (http://usa.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/1996-97/OTHERS+ICC/ICCT97/ICCT97-MATCHES/FINALS/BDESH_KENYA_ICCT-FINAL_12-13APR1997.html)

Sar, Holland gets to regularly participate in UK leagues and they have players with family links in both UK and South Africa. The guy who scored the 100+ against Kenya in the first match was born (I think) in SA and played a few first class matches there. Does make a big difference, doesn't it ?

Holland was a good team since late 90's, Holland is a good team now and probably will be a good team in future .....

But they have always failed to prove themselves in big occasions. I will not be surprised if we see other teams like Scotland, Ireland even Namibia gets ODI status ahead of Holland.

nkhan
April 7, 2006, 02:31 AM
Just to get some facts straight. Holland has been playing international cricket since 1905, and has been in the top 6 associates ever since 1982. They may well have been in the top 6 in 1979 as well, but their game in that tournament against USA got washed out and they lost the points.

Their best player is perhaps Zuiderant, who did not score much in the intercontiental cup match. But by reputation their best player is Alexei Kervezee who is only 16 years old. Plus they have another youngster in Dan Van Bunge, who I think is only 22 years old, who is a very promising player.

Secondly, they ALREADY have ODI status.

Namibia, btw, is an over rated team. Only whites in that african country play cricket, and that situation always reminds me of what has happenned in Zimbabwe. Bad investment in my opinion for the ICC.

For Holland, both Billy Stelling and Darron Reekers are SA and ZA born. But they are dutch by descent. I dont know more about them.

The biggest problem with the Dutch is that they lack the numbers. Scotland and Ireland beat them in the total number of players in the country, I think even Denmark beats them in numbers of active cricketers in the country.

For standard, it would be interesting to note that as far as I can recall, Dutch lost to Zimbabwe 2 times in the final of the ICC trophy in 1986 and also in 1990. On one occasion it was by 10 or 15 runs. And that Zim team was a farily strong one.
