Dutch criketers make history

Coming from a cricket crazy country, I have to admit the Indian media has ridiculed the Dutch cricket team which has several times in the past not even qualified to make it to the world cup. Cricket has been around in the Netherlands for more than a hundred years but somehow though it currently ranks as the 25th most popular sport. Yiikes!! 

So no wonder the English team took it easy for the curtain raiser match in the ICC World Twenty20 series against the orange country who incidentally are playing the tournament for the first time. And what did the bunch of  semi amateur Dutch cricketers do - defeat the mighty English team in their own country!! Boy, was I overjoyed...:D

Indian cricketers better watch out for the Dutchmen! :)
