The Netherlands have named a 14-man squad for their six-match tour against Namibia in March.

The squad contains a nice blend of youth and experience as Head Coach Ryan Campbell told the KNCB site.

"As always, my selections have been made with one eye on winning and protecting our World Ranking as well as having one eye on the future.

"It is great to give more opportunities to our youngsters Vikram Singh, Bas de Leede, and Philippe Boissevain as well recalling Sikander Zulfiqar, Viv Kingma and Sebastiaan Braat.

"With a packed summer schedule ahead of us, it was decided to give our Vice Captain and wicketkeeper, Scott Edwards, some extra time off and to also give Tobias Visée an opportunity to take the gloves again."

There's no Ryan ten Doeschate , Fred Klassen, or recent Northants signing Brandon Glover, but county players Colin Ackermann, Paul van Meekeren, Timm van der Gugten and Roelof van der Merwe are included.

The teams will play four T20I's and two 50-over matches on the tour, starting on Wednesday March 25th and finishing the following week on April 1st.

It will prove valuable preparation for the T20 World Cup which takes place in Australia this October.
