The Netherlands National Cricket team includes several eminent players, but the two experienced ones are missing.

Veteran all-rounder Roelof van der Merwe and key batter Colin Ackermann are missing. Both are replaced by young players - Tim Pringle and Michael Levitt.

Tim is a left-arm spinner with young talent. He is expected to add strength to the team. Levitt is a striking opener with a promise to add robustness in the batting.

Levitt made headlines with an impressive century against Namibia in a T20I tri-series in Nepal in February, striking 11 fours and 10 sixes in a knock of 135 from just 62 balls.

There is no change in the captaincy. Scott Edwards is once again the captain of the Netherlands National Cricket team. Scott has the experience of playing 60 matches from 2018 to 2024.

Scott scored 737 runs with an average and strike rate of 19.91 and 120.42 respectively.

Here's what the Head Coach, Ryan Cook has to say-

"We have been able to select a well-balanced team which we are confident will be able to perform in the conditions against the opposition we face in the US and West Indies,"

"All of the players have been training well and have been involved in the recent ProSeries with some exciting performances showing the growing depth and quality in Netherlands cricket. We have managed to perform admirably in the last two World Cups we have participated in and will be determined to rise to the challenges we face ahead to reach the next round of the tournament.
