Trent Boult showcased his fielding prowess with a jaw-dropping juggling catch at the boundary, securing the crucial wicket of Bas de Leede, who departed after scoring 18 runs off 25 balls.
In the ongoing World Cup clash against New Zealand, the Netherlands won the toss and chose to field at the Rajiv Gandhi Indoor Stadium in Hyderabad. Both teams have made adjustments to their playing XIs, with the Netherlands introducing Sybrand Engelbrecht and Ryan Klein. Meanwhile, New Zealand included Lockie Ferguson in place of Jimmy Neesham.
New Zealand put up an impressive total of 322 runs against the Netherlands. However, the Netherlands faced a challenging start, losing wickets consistently.
Coming to the rescue of the Netherlands, Bas de Leede partnered with Colin Ackermann when the team’s score was at 43. De Leede played patiently and then decided to take on Rachin Ravindra in the 17th over. During this moment, De Leede hit the ball towards long off.
Standing near the boundary, Trent Boult expertly judged the ball’s path and caught it with a reverse cup technique. While falling backward, Boult ensured he stayed inside the boundary line, tossed the ball back before crossing the rope, and then jumped forward to complete an exceptional catch.
Earlier in the game, Netherlands began strongly, delivering three consecutive maiden overs. However, New Zealand found their rhythm as the innings progressed. Devon Conway and Will Young formed a partnership, contributing 67 runs in 12 overs before Conway was dismissed for 32 runs off 40 balls by Roelof van der Merwe.
Young continued to dominate, reaching a well-earned 70 runs off 80 deliveries, with Rachin Ravindra joining the act. They added 84 runs for the second wicket before Young’s departure, caught by Paul van Meekeren.
Ravindra achieved his half-century, while Daryl Mitchell made a valuable contribution with 48 runs from 47 balls. Stand-in captain Tom Latham added 53 runs from 46 deliveries before the innings concluded with a late blitz from Mitchell Santner, who remained unbeaten on 36 runs off 17 balls. New Zealand posted a total of 322/7 in their allotted 50 overs.
