The two-match T20I series between the Netherlands and New Zealand kicked off on Thursday, with the first match being played at Sportpark West Vilet. New Zealand head into the opener on the back of their massive 102-run win over Scotland in a T20I affair. The Netherlands, on the other hand, have only tasted defeat in one of their last 5 T20I matches.
Mitchell Santner was hit for a six by Scott Edwards as the Dutch side set out in pursuit of 149. The equation is steep as they require 38 runs in 17 balls to win the first T20I in The Hague. Bas de Leede is unbeaten on 52.
