Ryan ten Doeschate Set For International Return

Ryan ten Doeschate is all set to make a sensational return for Netherlands, the country’s cricket board confirmed on Tuesday (November 14). The all-rounder will be in the squad for the side’s final two matches of the ICC World Cricket League against Namibia in Dubai on December 6 and 8.

Doeschate, who last played an international game during the 2011 World Cup,  has been featuring heavily in franchise cricket across the world in the last few years. He recently led Essex to an unprecedented County Championship title and also played in franchise T20 tournaments in India, Zimbabwe, Australia, New Zealand and Pakistan.

Head coach Ryan Campbell welcomed the news and said Doeschate getting added to the squad is a massive gain for the team.

“Getting a player of Ryan’s talent and experience is a massive gain for us. What he brings to the squad is more than just runs, wickets and brilliant fielding. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in big matches,” Campbell said.

“As captain of Essex he has just led them to the Division One Championship. Our youngsters will gain knowledge that you just can’t buy off a shelf. We are on the brink of something special but we will need cool, calm heads to see us through, I have no doubt Ryan will bring that,” Campbell added.

Sitting pretty at the top of World Cricket League table with 8 points, Netherlands have already sealed their spot for the World Cup qualifiers along with Papua New Guinea. However, they will be looking to consolidate their position at the top of the table to become the 13th ODI side that will compete in the ICC ODI Championship that is set to begin in 2020.

Meanwhile, Netherlands will be without the allrounder Michael Rippon who wasn’t released by New Zealand’s provincial team Otago.

Netherlands squad:

Peter Borren (c), Wesley Barresi, Ben Cooper, Ryan ten Doeschate, Paul van Meekeren, Stephan Myburgh, Max O’Dowd, Scott Edwards, Sikander Zulfiqar, Roelof van der Merwe, Shane Snater, Pieter Seelaar, Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen, Viv Kingma.

Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
