Netherlands (NED) are all set to host Scotland (SCO) in the fourthT20I on Wednesday, May 22, at the VRA Cricket Ground, in Amstelveen, Holland.

Scotland’s previous game against Ireland was washed out due to rain. They had a disappointing start in the tournament, suffering a 41-run defeat to the Netherlands in their first game. Scotland aim to secure a win in their next match to gain crucial points, but they will face a tough challenge against the hosts.

Matthew Cross, Richie Berrington, and Michael Jones are key batters to watch. Cross scored 49 runs in their last encounter with the Netherlands. Berrington and Jones, experienced players familiar with Dutch bowlers, are also expected to contribute significantly. Mark Wyatt, Christopher Sole, and Michael Leask will lead the bowling attack. Wyatt and Sole each took two wickets in their previous match against the Netherlands, while Leask’s spin could pose a threat.

The Netherlands have performed well so far, winning their first game against Scotland by 41 runs and narrowly losing to Ireland by just one run after restricting them to 150. Max O’Dowd, Bas de Leede, and Scott Edwards are the batters to watch. O’Dowd scored 33 runs against Ireland, while de Leede added 32.

Although Edwards has yet to make a significant impact, he remains a key player. Tim Pringle, Paul van Meekeren, and Vivian Kingma have been impressive with the ball. Pringle took five wickets, while  Van Meekeren and Kingma took three wickets in the matches played so far.

Amstelveen Pitch Report

The VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen offers balanced pitches that provide opportunities for both bowlers and batters. The new ball tends to swing during the first few overs, which bowlers should capitalize on. However, once batters settle in, they can score heavily. The highest T20I score at this venue is 221/3, while the lowest is 69. Winning the toss and choosing to bowl first might be advantageous, as the chasing team can better assess the surface conditions.

Ned vs SCO Probable Best Performers

Probable Best Batter

The 27-year-old Lorcan Tucker had a fine campaign with the bat against Pakistan. He was only behind Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam in the list of leading run-getters in the series, having scored 128 runs from three matches at an average of 42.67 and a strike rate of 156.10. Tucker has looked good so far in the ongoing series as well, but he has not been able to play a big knock. He would be eager to showcase his prowess in the upcoming game for sure.

Probable Best Bowler

Recently, the talented right-arm pacer Mark Adair had a decent outing against Pakistan, taking five wickets in three games at an average of 22.20. Although Adair was expensive in the first couple of matches, he bounced back with excellent figures of 3/28 in the series decider. He has also looked good so far in the ongoing series and would be eager to showcase his prowess with the ball in the upcoming game as well.
