ICC WCL Championship: Nepal batting against Netherlands

KATHMANDU: Nepal are batting against the Netherlands during the first match of the ICC World Cricket League Championship’s fourth round at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen on Saturday. Earlier, Netherlands won the toss and elected to field first in the 50-over match. The Netherlands will also host second match at the same venue on Monday. Nepal, who defeated Namibia after losing first two-round matches, are sixth in the points table of the eight-team competition, while the Netherlands stand on top with 10 points after six matches. The top four teams will earn berths in the 2019 ICC World Cup qualifiers. READ ALSO: Nepal and the Netherlands have played only two 50-over matches previously. In the first encounter, the Dutch produced a seven-wicket win in the 2014 World Cup Qualifier in New Zealand. Nepal defeated the Netherlands by two wickets in the World Cricket League Division-II in Namibia last year. Nepal had a horrible outing in the Netherlands last year. The hosts won 3-1 in the four-match Twenty20 International series. The first two matches were played at Amstelveen.
