“Our first appearance in the much talked about ODI Super League is no doubt the most important page in the Dutch cricket history book,” said Netherlands head coach Ryan Campbell.

“We hope to open this chapter with a really competitive series against our great friends and adversaries Ireland.

“We welcome back Timm van der Gugten, Fred Klaassen and Brandon from county duties and I expect them to form a potent fast bowling combination with Logan van Beek and Vivian Kingma, whose form has been outstanding so far this season.

“We will continue to back our best young talent and I’m extremely pleased to add Musa Nadeem to our long list of recent debutants. His form in the Topklasse has been outstanding as well as his hard work throughout our long hiatus from international cricket.

“This will no doubt be an extremely tough series, but I know the players are ready to go and it should be an exciting week of cricket.”

Netherlands and Ireland will contest three ODIs on 2, 4 and 7 June 2021 in Utrecht.
