2nd T20I between the Netherlands and New Zealand rescheduled to 5th August- Reports

New Zealand

New Zealand are currently on a tour of Ireland for three ODIs and as many T20 internationals. The Blackcaps won the ODI series 3-0 and have made a winning start in the T20I series as well. Meanwhile, there are some changes in the schedule for the upcoming tour of Netherlands.

The second T20 international between New Zealand and the Netherlands will be played on 5th August 2022, one day prior to the scheduled date. Earlier, the match was slated to be played on 6th August 2022.

New Zealand are currently on a tour of Europe. They first played against England in a Test series in May. Unfortunately, the Blackcaps lost the series 3-0. They, then, traveled to Ireland for three one-day internationals and currently lead the three-match T20I series 1-0.

After the tour of Ireland, New Zealand will be playing two T20 internationals and one ODI against Scotland before leaving for the Netherlands. With the postponement of their second Twenty20 International against the Netherlands, New Zealand will have only a four-day break between that match and the first Twenty20 International against the West Indies in Jamaica. Due to the hectic schedule, New Zealand Cricket (NZC) has been changing its lineup throughout the European trip.

Senior players such as Kane Williamson, Trent Boult, Tim Southee, and Devon Conway featured in the Test series against England. They have been rested for the series against Ireland, Scotland, and the Netherlands. The board has also allowed Tom Latham, Henry Nicholls, and Jacob Duffy to go back home after the ongoing series against Ireland.

All the senior players are expected to make their return to the side for the West Indies series. They will also play three ODIs in September against Australia and will then host a tri-series in October, consisting of teams such as Pakistan and Bangladesh.
