McLean Park Napier Weather: The SportsRush brings the weather forecast for 1st NZ vs NED T20I to you.

The Netherlands, who have played one ODI and one T20I each against New Zealand in the past, will face them for the first time in an away match today. In what will be the Netherlands’ first-ever T20I in New Zealand, the one-off match will be their third international match in any format in New Zealand.

Napier, who last hosted Bangladesh in a T20I a year ago, will host the Netherlands for the first time. As for the hosts, the Black Caps have both won and lost two of their four T20Is at this venue so far.

With many of their players absent to take part in the 15th season of the Indian Premier League, a weakened Kiwi side should still be able to provide tough competition for the Netherlands at McLean Park. Readers should note that both teams will lock horns in a T20I after no less than seven years.
