Netherlands bounces back to beat USA
ICC Media Release
At Khanshaheb Osman Ali Stadium, Netherlands were keen to ensure they did not put in another poor batting performance and Rambaldo’s side certainly made runs today, scoring 329 in its 50 overs. Wicketkeeper-batsman Miranda Veringmeier, alongside Kerry-Anne Tomlinson proved to be the stars for the ladies in orange, with the duo making 99 and 80 respectively.
Claudine Beckford and Samantha Ramautar managed two wickets each but the side were punished by strong batting from the Dutch top order.
Veringmeier proved a worthy Player of the Match after the 19-year-old from Schiedam claimed a run out and a stumping in the USA’s reply innings. The Americans struggled against the two off-spinners of the Dutch side, Esther de Lange and Esther Lanser, the duo combining to dismiss six of the side, while Tomlinson’s medium pace helped both at the beginning and end of the innings.
Tomorrow will see The Netherlands play South Africa in the only ODI of the day at BKSP 2.
