Cricket Betting Tips and Match Prediction ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 - Netherlands v Kenya
The 3rd match of the ICC Men's T20 WC Qualifier 2019 will be played between Netherlands and Kenya at the ICC Academy in Dubai.
Netherlands were ranked 14th at the time of the cut off date for qualification to the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Qualifier but now have slipped down to the 18th spot in the rankings. However, the rankings don't give you the full picture as the team is stronger than many of their opponents taking part in the championship.
A lot of their players have honed their skills in the English County circuit and hence have a lot of experience. The team qualified for three previous editions of the T20 World Cup in 2009 2014 and 2016. Their moment of glory came in the 2014 T20 World Cup when they qualified to the second group stage and then beat England.
Ryan ten Doeschate, with an experience of almost 350 T20s, is their most experienced player and the team would expect the likes of Pieter Seelaar and Ben Cooper to rally around him.
Kenya are ranked 29th in the ICC Men's T20I rankings but qualified for the championship courtesy of their performance in the T20 World Cup Regional Finals where they ended at the second spot behind Namibia.
Kenya do have some exciting players in their ranks such as the seasoned skipper Shem Ngoche and Collins Obuya and young guns like Sachin Bhudia and Pushpak Kerai.
Let's have a look at the squads of both teams:
Netherlands- Pieter Seelaar (c), Colin Ackermann, Philippe Boissevain, Ben Cooper, Scott Edwards, Brandon Glover, Fred Klaassen, Max O'Dowd, Shane Snater, Antonius Staal, Ryan ten Doeschate, Timm van der Gugten, Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren, Tobias Visée
Kenya- Shem Ngoche (c), Sachin Bhudia, Emmanuel Bundi, Aman Gandhi, Dhiren Gondaria, Irfan Karim, Pushpak Kerai, Jasraj Kundi, Alex Obanda, Collins Obuya, Nelson Odhiambo, Lucas Oluoch, Elijah Otieno, Rakep Patel, Rushab Patel
