Netherlands have a rare opportunity of competing against a top-quality international side as they take on South Africa in 3 ODIs between Nov 26 and Dec 1.

The last time both Netherlands and South Africa took the field was in the recently-concluded T20 World Cup. Although they had different fate, both returned unsatisfied from the showpiece event.

Netherlands lost to Ireland, Namibia and Sri Lanka and failed to make the Super 12 stage. In fact, along with Papua New Guinea, Netherlands were the only team to lose all their first-round matches.

South Africa didn't make it to the knockout stage but did extremely well, losing just one match, and that too a nail-biter against eventual champions Australia.

With Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje rested, Lungi Ngidi out because of Covid-19 and Lizaad Williams sidelined due to an intercostal muscle strain, SA are short on pace bowling resources. Wayne Parnell, Sisanda Magala and Daryn Dupavillon will try to do their best with help from Junior Dala and Andile Phehlukwayo.

Netherlands too are without Ben Cooper, Paul van Meekeren and Tobias Visee who made themselves unavailable for the tour for undisclosed personal reasons. The team will miss Cooper the most. At the same time, it presents an opportunity for the younger lot to do something special.

With ODI World Cup Super League points up for grabs, the first South Africa vs Netherlands ODI will be played at the SuperSport Park, Centurion on Nov 26, Fri.
