New Zealand Vs Netherlands, New Zealand took on Netherlands for the first time since 1996 in an encounter that was very one-sided. Netherlands struggled with the bat, making just 202, and didn’t have enough to be brave and penetrative with the ball. New Zealand though, will be pleased with how their youngsters stepped up as a number of first-choice players are missing the series.

Both sides are fully fit and will remain unchanged.
Will Young looked very promising in the first ODI, with a century in a small chase. He is a talent for sure, and is giving himself a strong chance of retaining his place once the regulars come back. With Ross Taylor retiring, Will Young has a good opportunity to settle himself in the eleven taking up the vacant spot and will be looking to score very big in the next two games.

Despite all the chaos around him, Michael Rippon managed to show character and fought through for a gritty 67. He lacked support but helped his team get something on the board and looks very promising. Hopefully a better platform for him can allow him to show his best in the upcoming games.
