Live Scores and Stats - Malaysia v Netherlands Match 2
Current Form Netherlands:
Netherlands have lost their first match of the tournament against Nepal by 9 wickets.
After losing the toss, Netherlands were asked to have a bat first. They got off to a terrible start losing both Max O Dowd and Ben Cooper within the powerplay overs. Scott Edwards and Bas de Leede stitched a partnership of 61 runs for the 3rd wicket. However, the partnership came at a very slow pace and Netherlands had to step up the run rate to get to a decent total. Bas de Leede tried to accelerate and hit 2 consecutive sixes in the 16th over but fell to Sandeep Lamichhane in the 17th over trying to reverse sweep a straight ball. Tonny Staal and the skipper Pieter Seelar played well in the death overs to propel the Netherlands total to 136 for 4 in 20 overs.
Chasing 136, Kushal Bhurtel and Mohammad Asif Sheikh looked to be in a hurry to finish the game as they collected 116 runs for the first wicket at a very quick pace. The opening pair almost sealed off the game with their impeccable hitting. Kushal Bhurtel lost his wicket after scoring 62 off 46 deliveries. Asif Sheikh also played well for his 54 off 38 balls. In the end, Nepal chased the total by 9 wickets with 30 balls to spare. Kushal Bhurtel was adjudged man of the match for his brilliant batting performance.
Current Form Malaysia:
Malaysia performed invariably well in the 2020 season of International cricket. Before beating Nepal during the ACC Eastern Region Twenty20 Asia Cup Qualifiers, they had clean swept Hongkong in a bilateral Twenty20 International series.
Malaysia have retained Ahmad Faiz as their captain for the Tri-Nation series. With the likes of Virandeep Singh, Anwar Arudin and Syed Aziz, Malaysia looks a very settled unit.
