    Dutch team etc.

    yo peeps,
    whats up with the dutch team, i really dislike it wait first i give my reasons. there are only 2-3 real dutch guys in the squad. all the other guys are not dutch or mixed dutch, only 4 people can sing the national anthem. winning or losing doesn`t matter to them. i especially dislike Dirk Nannes, he doesn`t love cricket he is so talented but would rather choose for skiing or that kind of thing.
    what are your thoughts bout this ?

    Yeah, this is a bit of a problem, but it's common amongst minnow countries these days.

    winning or losing doesn`t matter to them
    Since when?

    Do you have any evidence to back this up? I've never seen, read or heard anything about him not liking cricket, or rathering skiing, and even if he did, if his heart is in cricket and he wishes to play well, I don't see anything wrong with it.

    what are your thoughts bout this ?
    Read above. There is obviously problems, but it happens with all countries, minnows more in particular.

    The overwhelming majority of associate teams tend to be made-up of those who grew-up and learned their cricket elsewhere. Neither confined to Holland nor all that surprising.

    Spreading the cricket gospel is extremely difficult, and will remain so.

    1st of all. That is a comnplete falsehood. Unless off course your definition of Dutch is similar to the BNP's definition of British.

    Unless you can or have systematically got every single one of the Dutch squad to sing the Nat anthem and they failed, i am going say this is also a complete falsehood.

    Wasnt there 6 dutch-born guys in the team for the last game? Also, Ill admit I dont have an expert ear but their names all sound Dutchie so it doesnt sound like they are going too far outside the gene pool

    i can name you every single player and tell you he is dutch or not, you don`t just become dutch if you have a dutch passport.
    Darron Reekers= not dutch new zealander i doubt he can sing the anthem
    Alexei Kervezee= namibian of origin grown up in NL can sing the anthem
    Bas Zuiderent= dutch pure
    Peter Borren= New zealander cant speak a word of dutch
    Tom de Grooth= dutch
    Daan van bunge= dutch
    Mudassar Bukhari= pakistani
    Edgar schiferli= Dutch
    Nannes= we know what he is
    Ten Doeschate= SA
    if you exclude players like adeel raja, muhammad Kashif, Somesh Kohli.

    my point is, i am a pakistani playing in holland. my point is that there a lot of players in there who want fame not pride for the country this thing is wrong. but somehow no one is agreeing. if i play for lets say nl u-18 now i will not play with my heart for nl but will when playing for pak u-18. and about Nannes he said he didn`t want to play, but smits somehow forced him. he only plays to prove australia something if it wasn`t for the money he would be skiiing. Nannes preferred delhi daredevils above NL team, Tendoeschate prefereed essex over NL team. any1 with me eh ?

    I dont get that mentality. Are you a Dutch citizen?

    Id play equally hard for Burkina Faso U18s (example) as for England U18s if it was in a World Cup.

    First I've heard of that. I wonder how that would've worked exactly?
