There were some incredible moments during yesterday’s ODI World Cup game between New Zealand and the Netherlands.

The Dutch won the toss and put New Zealand in to bat first. And the Blackcaps made the most of the opportunity as well.

New Zealand batted really well and didn’t allow the Netherlands to dominate them at any stage during the game.

In the end, they posted a good total of 322/7 in their 50 overs and asked the Dutch to chase down 323.

For New Zealand, it was Will Young, Rachin Ravindra, and Tom Latham who all scored fifties during the innings.

However, the Netherlands didn’t get the start that they hoped for as they were 67/3 in just 16.4 overs, and Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, and Bas de Leede were all sent back to the pavilion.

Meanwhile, in dismissing de Leede, Kiwi pacer, Trent Boult did some incredible acrobatics to send back the Dutch batter.

Firstly, he caught the ball by jumping to his full height but realized that he was losing momentum.

Then, he came back inside the boundary and caught the ball while it was still in the air and completed the catch.

But, some Dutch batters did give a good fight towards the end with Colin Ackerman scoring 69 from 73 balls.

Even skipper Scott Edwards and Sybrand Engelbrecht played some good knocks but it didn’t come in handy for the Netherlands at all.

Thus, New Zealand ended up winning the game by 99 runs as the Netherlands were all out for 223.

For the Blackcaps, Mitchell Santner became the first bowler to pick a 5-wicket haul in an ODI World Cup game with figures for 5/59 from 10 overs.

Meanwhile, Trent Boult remained wicketless as he finished with figures of 0/34 from eight overs.

New Zealand will go head-to-head against Bangladesh in their next game

Speaking about their next, New Zealand will go up against Bangladesh on the 13th of October at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

They will look to continue with their winning momentum as they have now won two in two.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands will be hoping to get their first win as they lock horns with a formidable South Africa on the 17th of October at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala.
