2. Max O'Dowd
Max O'Dowd has been a run-bank for the Netherlands in the shortest format of the game. He has featured in 58 T20Is and scored 1589 runs at a strike rate of 122.13. In the ongoing global tournament, he was at his prolific best scoring a total of 242 runs in eight games at a strike rate of 112.55.
In the seam-friendly conditions in Australia, handling the new ball has not been an easy task but O'Dowd rose to the occasion and gave his side solid starts. When the Netherlands faced Sri Lanka in the first round, he played a remarkable innings scoring 71* runs off 53 balls against a quality Lankan bowling attack.
O'Dowd again showed his sheer class in the match against Zimbabwe scoring a gritty 52 runs off 47 balls to help his team chase a target of 118. The 28-year-old has proven his mettle at the grandest stage and the team management will hope he continues the good work going forward.
