Malaysia are all set to take on the Netherlands in the fifth match of the Nepal Tri-Nations Cup at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground in Kirtipur on Wednesday, 21st April.
Malaysia will be under tremendous pressure to succeed in their remaining two matches to advance to the tri-nation tournament finals. That being said, they would have to not only win by a large margin but also hope for other favorable outcomes. In their first two matches, they were defeated by host Nepal and the Netherlands by 9 wickets and 15 runs, respectively.
In contrast, the Netherlands has two victories and one loss in the tournament. Due to the match-winning fifties by Ben Cooper and Bas de Leede, Netherlands defeated Nepal in their previous fixture in a high-scoring thriller. They have the momentum towards them and are expected to win the match against Malaysia.
