The Dutch all-rounder Bas De Leede is celebrating his 24th birthday today. Bas De Leede has been instrumental for his team in the World Cup, especially with the ball. De Leede has bagged 16 wickets for his team at an average of 30.43. The All-rounder also contributed with the bat though he would have loved to score more runs to provide strength to the Dutch middle order.
Bas De Leede made his international debut for the Netherlands in the shortest format. He played his first T20 international against Nepal at Amstelveen. His potential got him the opportunity to make his place in the ODI team. The all-rounder made his ODI debut in 2018 against Ireland at Rotterdam. Since then, he has been very important for the Dutch team as he provides depth to the team. He can contribute with both his bowling and batting. He can shine with the new ball and come in the lower middle order to elongate the Netherlands’ batting order.
Bas De Leede has represented the Netherlands in 39 One-Day internationals. In those matches, he has scored 904 runs at an average of 24.43. He has been one of the integral components of the bowling attack. De Leede has taken 40 wickets in his ODI career at an average of 31.42.
In the shortest format, he has played 31 matches for the Netherlands. He has put both his skills to application perfectly in the shortest format as well. With the bat, he has scored 610 runs at a decent average of 30.50. When it comes to bowling, he has 27 scalps to his name at an average of 16.62.
Next year this Dutch team will be competing at the T20 World Cup and the skipper Scott Edwards will be counting on Bas De Leede a lot. The all-rounder will be creating more impact in the shortest format and it will be a great opportunity for the Netherlands to create more ripples in international cricket with their performance.
