But the dream of playing in the World Cup is over for West Indies! Today’s loss against the Netherlands makes this possibility more likely. West Indies reached the Super Six with zero points. Whereas the other two teams in Group ‘A’ who reached the Super Six, Zimbabwe and the Netherlands have points 2.

After the first innings, perhaps no one could have imagined that the West Indies would lose against the Netherlands in Harare, Zimbabwe today. Because West Indies scored 374 runs after losing the toss and batting first on Nicholas Pooran’s century. Who knew, it was the Netherlands who would hit that run against Jason Holders. Teja Nidamanu’s century stopped the Dutch at exactly 374 runs. The match is made in super over.

West Indies could not stand in front of the Netherlands in the Super Over. Dutch all-rounder Logan von Wyk scored 30 runs in the Super Over by Holder. Hit the boundary in 6 balls of the over. 3 sixes and 3 fours from Holder ended the match there. Von Wyck also came in with the ball in the super over. This pacer took 2 wickets in 5 balls.

Netherlands got off to a great start in reply for 375 runs. The two openers made a partnership of 76 runs in 10.4 overs. Max Dowd and Vikramjit Singh, both got out in the 30s, but their strike rates were over 100. Nidamanur originally dreamed of winning the Netherlands, which lost 3 wickets for 128 runs. Together with Scott Edwards, he made a pair of 143 runs off 90 balls. This batsman took the second century of his career off 68 balls.

When Nidamanur got out for the team’s 327 runs, the match went towards the West Indies. But Von Wyck didn’t let that happen. He made the match easy by picking up 21 runs in 1 over of Roston Chase even in the face of 30 runs needed in 2 overs. However, he had a chance to win the team without going to super over. The match went into super over when Alzari Joseph got out on the last ball of the innings. However, this all-rounder has done his job very well in the super over.
Earlier, West Indies made 374 in Puran’s 65-ball 104-run innings. West Indies opener Brendon King scored 76 runs.
