New Delhi. It is not surprising that a player born in one country plays for another country. In the T20 World Cup itself, we will see that many cricketers born in India will play for other countries. There are ICC rules for this. But Netherlands ignored the rules and included a player from another country in their team in the T20 match.

The Netherlands women's cricket team defeated Italy by 94 runs in a T20 International match. The Dutch team scored 178 runs for 4 wickets. After this, the opposing team was restricted to a score of 84 runs for 9 wickets. Captain Babette de Leeds scored the highest 82 runs for the Netherlands. Opener Madison Landsman was the second top scorer of the team by scoring 36 runs. This was also her first T20 International match.

Interestingly, Madison Landsman is originally a South African cricketer. She represented South Africa in the Under-19 Women's T20 World Cup in 2019. Not only this, she also took a hat-trick in this tournament.

20-year-old Madison Landsman has now left South Africa and settled in the Netherlands. According to ICC rules, if a player wants to leave one country and play for another country, then there should be a gap of at least two years for this. Whereas Madison Landsman played for South Africa only in January last year. Therefore, the gap required to play for the Netherlands could not be completed.

The Netherlands Cricket Board itself has admitted its mistake in the press conference. It has also not informed the ICC about this. The ICC has not given a public response on this. But it is believed that Madison Landsman may be banned for a few matches for this mistake. The match played on May 28, in which Madison played for the Netherlands, may also be cancelled.
