Nepal will hope to bounce back from their biggest Twenty20 International defeat when they clash against hosts Netherlands in the third T20I in Rotterdam. The 103 run-pillage suffered on Wednesday was based on Netherlands’ smart building of their innings after being asked to bat, expert acceleration, and regular wickets to effectively finish the contest by the seventh over of Nepal’s chase.

The venue of that one-sided contest, however, was different — Amstelveen. Netherlands had fielded three debutant players in their line-up, but nonetheless proved a better sharpened team to deal telling blows in a T20 contest. While bowlers Max O’Dowd, Thijs van Schelven shared three of the ten Nepal wickets between them, opener Tobias Visee got out for four in the fifth over of the Netherlands innings.

Nepal need a morale booster from somewhere to bounce back. Their weaker suit seems to be their batting, only because they have failed more spectacularly in their batting. Paras Khadka, their captain, leaked runs with the ball and got out for two off six balls in a forgettable outing. His team will need to win this upcoming Twenty20 to be alive in the series. Netherlands are leading 2-0 after wins in both the contests in Amstelveen.
