Voorburg – Due to persistent rain, VCC failed to score against visitors Salland on Whit Monday, although South African international Janneman Malan (113 not out) netted in his first century.
Last week, several other VCC players had already shown their best team in the three World Cup qualifiers against the best country in the Antilles.
‘West Indies’ is not really a country, but a set of players from about fifteen (is)lands of the Caribbean, including Jamaica, Barbados and Trinidad & Tobago. The collective Test Matches team has played under the name “West Indies” since 1928.
Previous encounters with the Netherlands in 2007, 2011 and 2018 always ended in easy wins for the ‘Windies’. This year, however, the Netherlands, who didn’t even have access to their professionals who play in England, played fantastic cricket against the visitors.
