Netherlands T20 World Cup

The Netherlands have unveiled their 15-player squad for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024, prioritizing young talent over experience. Notable omissions include veteran all-rounder Roelof van der Merwe and key batter Colin Ackermann, replaced by promising left-arm spinner Tim Pringle and hard-hitting opener Michael Levitt.

Levitt recently impressed with a blistering century against Namibia during a T20I tri-series in Nepal, smashing 11 fours and 10 sixes in a rapid 135 runs from just 62 balls.

Scott Edwards will once again captain the Dutch side, with star all-rounder Bas de Leede expected to play a crucial role in the team’s campaign. The Netherlands will face South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal in the group stages.
