In the ongoing ODI World Cup, New Zealand secured their second consecutive victory with a dominant performance against the Netherlands on Monday at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Opting to bat, New Zealand’s top order displayed exceptional skills, with Will Young (70), Rachin Ravindra (51), Daryl Mitchell (48), and Tom Latham (53) leading the charge. Their efforts powered the team to a formidable total of 322 runs in 50 overs. In response, the Netherlands lost their openers, V. Singh (12) and Max O’Dowd (16), early in the innings. Despite Colin Ackermann’s brave knock of 69 runs, the Dutch team struggled to keep up with New Zealand’s bowlers, who were in excellent form. Mitchell Santner’s five-wicket haul, combined with contributions from Matt Henry and Rachin Ravindra (three and one wicket respectively), led to the Netherlands being bowled out for 223 runs in 46.3 overs. New Zealand’s convincing win has boosted their confidence as they progress further in the tournament.
