Neil MacRae: “I am excited to be working at the KNCB with the Dutch women’s team. The Netherlands has a talented squad that has a lot of potential to develop further. It is great to start preparing for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier in the United Arab Emirates, which is a huge opportunity in April and May.”

KNCB High Performance Manager Roland Lefebvre: “Three years ago, the KNCB really committed itself to women’s cricket by appointing Shane Deitz as national coach. During that time, the women’s team has shown enormous progress. We have every confidence that Neil will continue to do great things. will continue the work that Shane has started and wish him every success. The women’s team is a group of very talented young players who show great commitment and work very hard. We are excited to see them grow and contribute to the next phase of their development .”
