WI vs ND 2022, 2nd ODI: Windies beats Dutch by five wickets to clinch the Series by 2-0

WI vs ND 2022: Nicholas Pooran clinched his first-ever series as a full-time white-ball captain for West Indies as his team won the second ODI by five wickets over the home side Dutch at teh VRA Cricket Ground Amstelveen on Thursday.

It was the day of West Indies who outplayed the Netherlands in every department to clinch the series on their name. With this stunning win, the Windies took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series with one more match remaining to be played.

Opting to bat first, the Netherlands got off to a sparkling start as their openers Vikramjit Singh (46) & max O’Dowd (51) stitched a 101-run stand. However soon their blooming stand was broken when Hayden Walsh dismissed Singh. Then came wicket-keeper batter Scott Edwards who top-scored for the team by scoring 68 runs off 89 balls. Other than this trio the rest of the batters failed to deliver in front of the Windies’ fiery bowling attack. Edwards was the last batsman for the Dutch who got dismissed on the third ball of the 49th over, reducing the Netherlands to 214.

Spinner Akeal Hosein starred with the ball for West Indies by scalping 4 wickets for just 39 runs in his spell of 10 overs. Other bowlers like Alzarri Joseph scalped 2-30 while Phillip, Walsh & Nkrumah Bonner scalped one wicket each.

In the chase of 215 runs, West Indies had the worst possible start & almost half of their team went back to the pavilion for just 99 runs on board. The likes of Shai Hope (18) who scored an unbeaten 119 runs in their previous clash, Shamrah Brooks (6), Bonner (15), Nicholas Pooran (10) & Kyle Mayers (22) all failed to hit the straps & succumbed in front of Dutch’s scariest bowling spell with Bas de Leede leading the attack from the fore-front.

But middle-order batters had some different plans for them with Brandon King & Keacy Carty started to rebuild things for West Indies & turned the momentum in Windies favor. Both played entertaining knocks for their team & formed a 118-run stand that took Windies to victory. Brandon too finished with 91* off 91 balls with nine fours & three sixes & continued his good form in the series. Carty provided him a supporting hand by playing a stunning knock of 43* off 66 balls. Leande was the pick of the bowlers for the Netherlands, taking 2-46, Logan Van Beek, Aryan Dutt & Shariz Ahmad also scalped one wicket each.
