The Netherlands cricket team is all set to host England for a three-match ODI series starting on Friday, June 17 at the VRA Cricket Ground in Amstelveen. This is a historic series, as the two teams will be playing against each other for the first time in ODIs.
The Netherlands recently played an ODI series against West Indies at the same venue. However, things did not go well for the hosts as they lost the match 3-0. The Pieter Seelaar-led team will be keen to change things around and put up a good show against England in the upcoming series.
