Last ECB One Day Championship season Dutch women's 1st XI
With the abolition of the current county championship set-up, the Dutch women's XI will only take part in the ECB One Day Championship and not in the Twenty20 competition in the upcoming season.
That means a lot less travelling in 2016; 2015 was quite an exhausting season with 9 trips to the UK for the young squad. The team will again be led by Esther de Lange, while a few familiar faces will appear with the likes of Miranda Veringmeier, Cher van Slobbe, Lisa Klokgieters et cetera.
Veringmeier will be vying for a place in the Worcester 1st XI squad in the T20 competition. Young Sterre Kalis will join the Essex women's county programme.
The new coach of the team will be South African-born Sean Trouw. He is, like former coach Peter Cantrell, a member of the Utrecht-based club Kampong. Sean was coach of the U19 group during the 2015-2016 winter.
