Zimbabwe vs Netherlands T-20 World Cup 2022

Zim vs Net Live Score (Zimbabwe vs Netherlands)

The 2022 T-20 World Cup is set to be an epic clash between Zimbabwe and the Netherlands. These two teams have been dominant in recent years, and fans are eagerly anticipating the match-up. Both countries have strong batting line-ups, and their bowling attacks are also world-class. It promises to be a close contest, and one that fans will not want to miss. So, who will come out on top? Only time will tell, but we can’t wait to find out.


The Zimbabwe national cricket team is scheduled to play the Netherlands in a T20 World Cup match on March 9, 2020. This will be the first meeting between the two teams in the T20 World Cup. Zimbabwe is currently ranked 12th in the world in T20I cricket, while the Netherlands is ranked 20th. However, Zimbabwe has struggled in recent years, winning just 3 of their last 10 T20I matches. The Netherlands has fared better recently, winning 5 of their last 10 T20I matches. Both teams will be looking to use this match as a springboard to success in the tournament. Zimbabwe will need to rely on their experienced players, such as captain Hamilton Masakadza and all-rounder Sean Williams, to lead the way. The Netherlands will look to their stars, such as batsman Ben Cooper and bowler Paul van Meekeren, to make an impact. It should be an exciting match between two evenly matched teams.

The Zimbabwean team has given magnificent performance in this T20 World Cup 2022 both in the group stage first and now in the Super-12. They recently defeated Australia for the first time in the ODIs. They performed exceptionally well in the group stage and qualified for the Super-12 and just in their 2nd match of this event, they were able to defeat Pakistan in a thrilling contest. They were successful in defending 130 runs against Pakistan. The thrilling match against Bangladesh, although they lost, turned out to be an exciting contest but eventually Zimbabwe failed to chase the target.

 Zimbabwe’s team has some fine talent in their team. Blessing Muzarabani, who is a young fast bowler, was also named in their T20 World Cup squad. He bowled superbly against Pakistan. Another star player is Sikander Raza. During the past 1 year, he has scored 516 runs in 15 T20s at an average of 39.69 and holds the record of getting 7 man of match awards this year, the most by any cricketer in a year.

 While Wessly Madhevere is also in brilliant form from the previous year. The notable bowling performance from the Zimbabwe side from the previous 1 year has been from Sikander Raza and Luke Jongwe. These will be the key players of the Zimbabwe team. Sikander Raza’s performance in the qualifiers of this world cup ensured his team reached the Super-12 stage of the World cup. 

He can give a fine all-round performance even on bad days. Meanwhile, Richard Ngarava, another pacer of the Zimbabwean squad, remained economical as well in previous few matches.

Nothing good, except for qualifying in the Super-12, has come out from this tournament for Netherlands. They lost all of their three matches and are at the bottom of the points table. As if this wasn’t enough, one of their main batsmen, Bas de Leede, got seriously injured due to a deadly bouncer by Haris Rauf that hit his helmet. Max O’Dowd has 309 runs in 10 matches with an average of 30.90 since the previous few years. 

 Another fine batter of the Dutch team is Bas De Leede who has 296 runs in just 9 innings and holds an average of 49.3.  In the bowling department, Fred Klassen is their main man. His bowling record shows that he has 12 wickets in 8 matches while Logan Van Beek is their top wicket taker. 

He has 13 wickets in 8 matches and could play really well. We have now seen the performance of some of these above-mentioned players in the qualifying round of the T20 World Cup 2022 where Netherlands with 3 others teams progressed to the Super-12 stage of the tournament.


The Zimbabwean team as we discussed earlier has produced some quality stuff in this event. They are a better team than Netherlands and are looking favourites for this contest.


Netherlands is a country located in northwestern Europe. It is bordered by the North Sea to the west and south, and by Belgium and Germany to the east. With a population of over 17 million people, it is the 64th most populous country in the world. The official language of Netherlands is Dutch, and the currency is Euro. Netherlands has a long history of cricket, dating back to the 18th century. The national team made its World Cup debut in 1992, and has since appeared in four tournaments. In 2019, they will be making their fifth appearance. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, will be appearing in their second World Cup. The two teams have only played each other once before in ODI cricket, back in 2003. That match was won by Zimbabwe by 3 wickets. However, recent form would suggest that Netherlands are the favourites going into this match. They have won 7 of their last 8 ODI matches, while Zimbabwe have won just 3 of their last 8. With both teams looking to start their World Cup campaign with a win, this promises to be an exciting match.

Group A

Group A of the Zimbabwe vs Netherlands T-20 World Cup features some of the world’s best cricketing nations. Zimbabwe is a strong team, with a solid batting lineup and a few key players who can take wickets. Netherlands is an up-and-coming side, with a lot of potential. They are led by an experienced captain, and have a number of talented young players in their squad. This group will be fascinating to watch, as two teams with very different playing styles go head to head. On paper, Zimbabwe looks like the stronger side, but Netherlands has proved time and again that they are not to be underestimated. It is sure to be a close contest, and whichever team comes out on top will have their work cut out for them in the next round.

Group B

The Netherlands will be looking to make it two wins from two when they take on Zimbabwe in their second World Cup match. The Dutch got off to a winning start with a comfortable victory over Kenya, and they will be hoping for more of the same against Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe, on the other hand, will be desperate to get something from the game after losing their opening match to Pakistan. They will need to improve on both sides of the ball if they are to stand any chance of beating the Dutch. It promises to be an intriguing contest, and one that the Netherlands will be expected to win. However, Zimbabwe will not make it easy for them, and this could turn out to be a tricky game for the Dutch.

Super 10

Super 10 The Super 10 stage of the World Cup is where the top ten teams in the world compete in a round-robin tournament. The top two teams from each pool advance to the semi-finals. In Pool A, Zimbabwe will take on Netherlands, Sri Lanka, and England. Zimbabwe is currently ranked tenth in the world, so they will need to step up their game if they want to make it to the semi-finals. Netherlands is ranked sixth in the world, so they will be a tough opponent for Zimbabwe. Sri Lanka is ranked eighth in the world, so they will also be a tough team for Zimbabwe to beat. England is currently ranked second in the world, so they will be the toughest team in Pool A for Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe has never made it past the Super 10 stage of the World Cup, so this will be a tough challenge for them. If they can manage to get past Netherlands and Sri Lanka, then they will have a good chance of making it to the semi-finals. However, if they can’t get past either of those teams, then their chances of making it to the semi-finals are slim.
