It actually is the knock-out of Dutch cricket. With this terrible qualifying tournament The Netherlands have lost ODI status after the tournament.
Losing ODI status means losing most of the funding. (I guess about 80%) and the loss of ODI status and being kicked out of the English Pro 40 league means that the Dutch main sponsor ABN AMRO will probably pull out.
Loss of funding likely means the end of all youth recruitment at schools and winter indoor facilities. Summer camps, funding for youth tournaments. All gone.
Very ****ty as the numbers of active cricketers have been going down.
