The 2019 Cricket World Cup is taking much of the attention, but Netherlands made a big statement with a convincing win over Zimbabwe in the first ODI on Wednesday.

Early wickets were followed by regular ones, never letting their more established opponents get going. It was the Netherlands’ first win against a Test nation in an ODI since beating Bangladesh in 2010, and they have a great opportunity to pick up their first ever series win against a side in the Test rankings at the time.

Key to a Netherlands win

Five bowlers were used on Wednesday, with each contributing to the cause. Fred Klaasen led the attack well, and will be required to do so again against a Zimbabwe side looking to make amends. He can set a platform for the likes of Paul van Meekeren and skipper Pieter Seelaar to build pressure in the middle overs as they did in the first game, taking a combined 4/62 off 19 overs. The challenge will be to repeat such an effort two days later, overcoming Zimbabwe’s experienced players to restrict them again.

Also, Max O’Dowd enjoyed a fine ODI debut. His smooth, unbeaten half century provided a big wake up call to Zimbabwe that their bowlers can’t always cover for their batting failures, partnering well with Tobias Visee, Ben Cooper and Wesley Barressi to keep the partnerships coming. Can the Netherlands start well in the powerplay again, building on things nicely in the middle overs?

Key to a Zimbabwe win

It was a bad day for Zimbabwe. Apart from Brendan Taylor, no other specialist batsmen made a mark, with Donald Tiripano and Kyle Jarvis lifting Zimbabwe above 200 from the depths of 159/7. Craig Ervine, Sean Williams and Sikandar Raza all made double figures before getting out, under pressure from failures from the openers. Zimbabwe need to outplay the Netherlands in the powerplay this time around, setting a platform for the middle order to play off.

Also, there is plenty of room for improvement with the ball, with debutant Ainsley Ndlovu showing up his more experienced teammates. Kyle Jarvis and Tendai Chatara, both very good against UAE in April, were expensive on Wednesday, combining for 0/77 off 11.5 overs. With Zimbabwe’s follow up bowlers capable of building some pressure, the onus is on these two to bowl with greater control against the Netherlands’ top order.
