Nepal set to play first ODI against the Netherlands
May 24, 2018-
Nepal is all set to play its first two ODIs against the Netherlands on August 1 and 3, reported cricbuzz.com.
The two matches are scheduled to take place in the Netherlands immediately following the two nations' T20 tri-series with the MCC at Lords, which is scheduled for July 29. However, the match venue for the ODIs has not been disclosed yet.
Nepal and Netherlands had last met during the World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe in March, when the Dutch side had won the seventh-place playoff by 45 runs at Kewkwe, after Nepal had secured ODI status by beating Papua New Guinea at Harare.
As per the report, the games will be the first ODIs hosted in the Netherlands since the Dutch welcomed South Africa in May 2013 and will also mark the Netherlands' return to ODI cricket after an absence of almost five years.
Nepal's most recent visit to the Low Countries was in August of 2016, when the two sides shared honours in two List A internationals in the fourth round of the World Cricket League Championship.
