On Tuesday, November 29, the Netherlands and Thailand women will play a 20-over match at the Royal Chiangmai Golf Club in Chiang Mai. The Thai women have completely dominated the current bilateral white-ball series, and they are expecting to maintain their impressive run in the shortest format as well.
The hosts appear like a superior side on paper to easily win the T20I series after decimating the Dutch squad by an impressive 4-0 margin in the recently ended One Day Internationals. The Thai players have also demonstrated incredible collaboration. On the other hand, there is a lot of work to be done in the Netherlands.
The visitors must perform at an elite level if they are to pose any danger to the hosts in the shortest format after being utterly outplayed by Thailand in the ODI series. More significantly, the Dutch women would be hungry to succeed in the opening T20I match itself since they are urgently seeking their first victory of this trip.

The Royal Chiangmai Golf Club’s wicket has been well-balanced and has so far helped both batsmen and bowlers equally. Notably, in the current bilateral series, the side batting first has gone on to win the majority of times. The captain who wins the toss will thus choose to bat.
N Chatham, N Chaiwai (C), R Kanoh, S Tippoch, C Sutthiruang, N Koncharoenkai, O Kamchomphu, T Putthawong, N Boochatham, P Maya, and S Naomi are likely starters for the TL-W versus ND-W Thailand Women matchup. Rijke, SL Kalis (C), AH Thomson, HDJ Siegers, Iris Zwilling, B de Leede, J van Vliet, F Overdijk, Eva Lynch, Caroline de Lange, and S Siegers are all Dutch women.
The most likely top batter is Natthakan Chantal. In the shortest format, Natthakan Chantam has been among Thailand’s women’s most reliable and effective players. She is a very skilled batter with 1165 runs scored from 55 games, an average of 25.88, a strike rate of 91.01, six half-centuries, and a top score of 88*. Chatham, who leads Thailand in WT20I scoring, will be looking to maximize her opportunities during the Netherlands series.
In the shortest format, Nattaya Boochatham has been one of Thailand’s most deadly and significant bowlers. Boochatham has thus far added 75 kills to her total from 57 T20Is, averaging 10.96 at a 4.36 economy. In the forthcoming WT20Is against the Netherlands, she will be trying to increase the number of wickets on her record.
