In a Group D match which neither team could afford to lose, the Netherlands emerged victorious over Nepal with a convincing margin at the Grand Prairie Stadium in Texas.

After winning the toss and restricting Nepal to a moderate total upfront, Netherlands overhauled their target with more than an over to spare in match number seven of the 2024 T20 World Cup on June 4.

Here’s the timeline of how NED vs NEP panned out in Texas:

NED vs NEP Highlights: Tim Pringle, Logan Jolt Nepal With The New-Ball

Young Netherlands left-arm spinner Tim Pringle struck in his opening over to remove Nepal opener and wicketkeeper-batter Aasif Sheikh for just four.

In the first bowling change of the innings, senior fast bowler Logan van Beek accounted for Kushal Bhurtel by trapping the Nepal opener plumb in front of stumps with a sharp angling delivery.

Jolted by early strikes, Nepal’s number three Anil Sah and captain Rohit Paudel cautiously steered their team to 29-2 by the end of the opening powerplay.

Shortly after the powerplay, Tim Pringle deceived a well-set Anil Sah with a flighted delivery before right-arm pacemen Paul van Meekeren and Bas de Leede tore through Nepal’s middle-order in the second half of the innings.

Both Meekeren and Leede chipped in with two wickets each, while Pringle removed top-scorer Rohit Paudel for a near run-a-ball 35 as Nepal slipped to 106-8 in 18.5 overs.

Logan van Beek, who struck in his first ball of the match, also claimed the final two wickets on offer to envelop Nepal’s entire innings for just 106 in 19.2 overs. The speedster himself finished with figures of 3-18, while Pringle picked 3-20 from his four-over spell.

NED vs NEP Highlights: Max O’Dowd Navigates Dutch To Safety After Early Wickets

After Sompal Kami got rid of Dutch opener Michael Levitt, his partner Max O’Dowd pacified Netherlands’ early setback with a steady approach to the run-chase. The cricketer shared handy partnerships with number three Vikramjit Singh (22 off 28 balls) and Sybrand Engelbrecht (14 off 16 balls) to bring Netherlands back into contention.

NED vs NEP Highlights: Max And Leede Overcome Potential Collapse With Easy Win

A mix-up involving Sybrand Engelbrecht, coupled with Abinash Bohara accounting for Dutch skipper Scott Edwards helped Nepal launch a courageous late fightback amidst Netherlands’ dwindling response at 80-4 in 15.2 overs.

With Netherlands requiring 27 more runs from the remaining 27 deliveries, well-set opener Max O’Dowd smacked a few to get to an unbeaten half-century while all-rounder Bas de Leede bashed 11* off 10 balls to take their team to a six-wicket win in the 19th over.

The outcome helped Netherlands take the second spot on the T20 World Cup 2024 Group D points table behind South Africa.
