T20 World Cup 2024

Netherlands made two changes for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 to be played in USA and West Indies starting from 2nd June onwards. Fred Klassen and Daniel Doram who were included in the 15-member squad have been ruled out of the tournament due to injuries. It is a massive blow for the Netherlands side as they will miss the services of Klassen and Doram for the mega event.

Saqib Zulfiqar and Kyle Klein are being added to the reserves and will be added to the 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup 2024. Kyle Klein has played just 3 matches in international cricket for the Netherlands who made his debut in February this year. On the other hand, Saqib will be returning to the T20I setup for the Netherlands after a gap of five years.

He played his last T20I match in August 2019. He was a part of the team that featured in the 2023 World Cup played in India. The Netherlands is currently taking part in the tri-series with Scotland and Ireland at home. They qualified for the T20 World Cup 2024 by finishing in the top 8 of the 2022 edition played in Australia.
