NED Playing 11 ODI World Cup 2023: As the cricketing world gears up for the ICC World Cup 2023, one team making a notable appearance is the Netherlands, fresh from their successful qualification campaign in the ICC World Cup 2023 Qualifiers. Their journey from the qualifiers to the grand stage is nothing short of an achievement, and they are set to play their first ODI match in the World Cup 2023.
Securing their spot as one of the top two sides in the qualifying tournament earlier this year, the Netherlands showcased their mettle. Their triumph over West Indies in a Super Over during the Super Six stage was a highlight, placing them second in the points table ahead of strong contenders like Zimbabwe, Scotland, West Indies, and Oman.
Although they faced defeat against Sri Lanka in the final, the Orange Army had already sealed their place in the multinational event in India. While they are aware of their underdog status in the tournament, the Netherlands team is eager to showcase their cricketing prowess against formidable opponents.
Their first test awaits against Pakistan on October 6th at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow. The Netherlands is looking to make a statement in the World Cup, setting the tone for a spirited and competitive tournament.
