T20 WORLD CUP – IRE beat NED: Curtis Campher makes history as Ireland thrashes Netherlands by 7 wickets in the opening clash

Opting to bat, the Netherlands had a shaky start as they lost the opener, Ben Cooper, in the first over, due to a mix-up. They were soon reduced to 22-2 in the fifth over. However, what really turned the match into Ireland’s favour was Curtis Campher’s 4 wickets off 4 balls as the Dutch slipped from 51/3 to 51/6 in the tenth over. From then, Irelands really dominated the game and bowled out the Netherlands at a mere total of 106/10 after Mark Adair picked up three wickets in the final over.

 

Campher removed Colin Ackermann, Ryan ten Doeschate, and Scott Edwards to take a hat-trick and then added Roelof van der Merwe to the list of his victims.
