Netherlands bowlers were on top of their game during their T20 World Cup opener against Nepal on a spicy pitch, keeping them to under 110 runs in their allotted overs with quality performances from Logan van Beek, Paul van Meekeren, Tom Pringle, and Bas de Leede. In the run chase, the Dutch batting lineup did feel the heat, losing a few wickets in quick succession, but Max O’Dowd batted right throughout the innings to ensure they chased down the paltry score with a few balls to spare.

Meanwhile, the bowling attack of South Africa put on a clinical performance against Sri Lanka in their T20 World Cup 2024 opener, bundling them out for just 77 runs with Anrich Nortje picking up four wickets on his return to the national team. The batters had to toil hard in the run chase on a nasty pitch, but the calmness under pressure from Heinrich Klaasen was more than enough for them to get past the finishing line.
