Netherlands vs New Zealand 1st T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips
The Netherlands and New Zealand begin their two-match IT20 series with Thursday evening’s game in Voorburg. The home side last played this format in the World Cup Qualifier B in Zimbabwe last month where they reached the final. New Zealand come into this series after beating Ireland 3-0 and Scotland 2-0 during July. Read on as we preview this game. The match begins at 17:00 local time at Sportpark Westvliet.
The Netherlands will be excited to face New Zealand in this game. It is their first IT20 at home since August 2019 and will give them a good measuring stick of their progress with only two months until the T20 World Cup.
New Zealand have not gone easy on either Ireland or Scotland in recent series and we expect them to play hard in this game also. They have plenty of firepower and depth across all positions.
