Netherlands vs Afghanistan will be the 34th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup, which is going to be played at Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.
The Netherlands has been one of the most improved teams in world cricket, and they showed it when they qualified for the World Cup, defeating West Indies and Ireland, who are said to be the favorites to be in the World Cup. They won their last match against Bangladesh by 87 runs, which is another brilliant play from the team against the side that had more experience in world cricket.
The bowling performance of the Netherlands has been amazing, which surprised even the team like South Africa, who lost them, which was the biggest flip of the World Cup. Paul Van Meekeren took four wickets in the match to help his team win the match against Bangladesh.
Afghanistan has been the most surprising team in the World Cup, defeating teams like Pakistan, England, and Sri Lanka with quite ease by chasing down the target with maturity to win the match by 7 or 8 wickets, which clearly shows how improved they are as a team.
Afghanistan team management and coach Jonathan Trott should be given more praise because the way they mold the team together is very impressive. The way Rahmat Shah played as a captain and took responsibility for the team, scoring 60-70 in both last matches. Afghanistan still has a chance to be in the semifinal after defeating Sri Lanka in the last match, placing them in the 5th spot in the points table.
