Netherlands vs New Zealand: With flight issues, the second T20 has been preponed to allow the tour to end early and make it easier for the New Zealand players to head to the West Indies. New Zealand had a nice chance to test their bench strength over the last month and will head into the West Indies tour with a full-strength side.

The weather is pretty clear with some cloud cover during the Netherlands vs New Zealand game.
The track is flat and run-scoring should be easy. Batting second is a better option on what is a fresh pitch.
Squad Yet to be Announced
Martin Guptill, Dane Cleaver, Michael Bracewell, Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips, James Neesham, Mitchell Santner, Ish Sodhi, Matt Henry, Lockie Ferguson, Blair Tickner
Finn Allen’s stroke making variety makes him a massive asset. He is on the rise and with New Zealand looking for aggressive batters he fits the bill perfectly. He has one more game here before the seniors come in and will want to make the most of it, taking his confidence to the West Indies.
The Netherlands struggled to compete in New Zealand. Although they have the home advantage here, it may not make much of a difference. New Zealand are doing a good job against their previous sides and are likely to continue their winning run.
