Will Young and Rachin Ravindra’s partnership yields 77 runs for the second wicket in ICC action.

Netherlands faces a formidable challenge, needing a record-breaking 323 runs to secure victory. Their highest ODI run chase stands at 291, achieved against Zimbabwe in 2019.

New Zealand compiled a strong total, thanks to half-centuries from Will Young, Tom Latham, and Rachin Ravindra, with Daryl Mitchell contributing 48. Notably, none of their batsmen could convert these starts into big scores, a testament to the Netherlands’ encouraging bowling performance. Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren, and Aryan Dutt each claimed two wickets, while Bas de Leede took one.

However, Netherlands’ task is made even more daunting by conceding a staggering 50 runs in the last three overs, bowled by de Leede, Dutt, and van Meekeren.

Tom Latham’s innings ended at 53, as reported by the Associated Press.

In the third-to-last delivery of his spell, Aryan Dutt dismissed Tom Latham, who scored 53 off 46 balls. Latham had just reached his fifty with a single off Paul van Meekeren in the previous over. However, he charged down the pitch against Dutt’s cleverly pulled-back length, causing the ball to turn away. This left Latham stranded out of his crease, and Scott Edwards completed the stumping. Dutt concluded with figures of 2 for 62 from his allotted 10 overs.

  • Dutt shares thoughts.

Aryan Dutt, with figures of 7-2-36-0, joined forces with Roelof van der Merwe to dismiss Mark Chapman. Chapman’s attempt to break free resulted in a catch by van der Merwe at deep backward point. He departed for 5 off 13 balls, and van der Merwe’s celebratory display followed. New Zealand has lost three wickets in just 24 balls, amassing only 16 runs.

Glenn Phillips’ stint on the pitch was brief, mirroring Daryl Mitchell’s departure. He only scored 4 runs before Bas de Leede caught him behind, diving to his right. Following this, de Leede believed he had claimed two wickets in consecutive balls. He thought Mark Chapman was caught behind, but Chapman successfully challenged the decision using DRS. Replays revealed that the ball had only brushed his hip, not his bat, before it passed down the leg side to Edwards.

  • Latham and Mitchell continue to excel.

Following a costly over with three consecutive fours to Tom Latham, Bas de Leede rebounded, allowing only one run in his sixth over, the 38th of the match. Meanwhile, Daryl Mitchell started and finished Roelof van der Merwe’s ninth over with a four and an impressive six, clearing the long-on boundary by 86 meters.

Rachin Ravindra’s luck held as he survived a close call when struck on the right boot by Ryan Klein’s dipping yorker. The Netherlands’ captain, Scott Edwards, took his time before requesting a review, but the umpire’s call ruled in favor of not out, with ball-tracking indicating the impact was just on the leg stump. In response, Ravindra punished Klein’s next delivery with a powerful shot through extra cover for a boundary.

Netherlands faced further disappointment when debutant Sybrand Egelbrecht, renowned for his fielding skills, dropped a straightforward catch at short midwicket when Daryl Mitchell was on 22.

Ravindra later reached his half-century by capitalizing on a misfield at deep point and taking two runs. his innings ended at fifty when Roelof van der Merwe claimed his second wicket, dismissing Ravindra, who was caught behind by Edwards.

  • Mitchell Delivers a Spectacular Performance

Daryl Mitchell’s monstrous six! A massive 82-meter hit over midwicket off Paul van Meekeren in the 29th over. The cherry on top? It was a free-hit due to van Meekeren’s previous overstep. Ouch, that must sting!

  • New Zealand Off to a Strong Start with 63 Runs for No Loss in the First 10 Overs

After 10 overs, New Zealand stands strong at 63 without losing a wicket. Devon Conway and Will Young remain unbeaten, scoring 29 each off 29 and 31 balls, following a slow start.

  • What is the ranking of New Zealand’s start in international comparisons?

According to cricket statistics expert Sampath Bandarupalli, New Zealand is just the second team since the 1999 ODI World Cup (the first edition with BBB data for all matches) to take three or more overs to score their first run. The West Indies achieved this feat in the opening game of the 2003 edition against South Africa when they got their first runs through a wide delivery after 3.1 overs.

New Zealand’s stunning nine-wicket victory over defending champions England in their opening match was a true upset, considering their close encounter four years ago.
