SPORTPARK WESTVLIET STADIUM, THE HAGUE

SPORTPARK WESTVLIET STADIUM (THE HAGUE)

Sportpark Westvliet is a multi-sports park in Voorburg, Netherlands. Among others, it contains the grounds of VV Wilhelmus and the Voorburg Cricket Club. The first recorded match on the ground came in 2010 when Afghanistan played Scotland in a warm-up match for the 2010 World Cricket League Division One, which the Netherlands hosted. Despite having a boundary which is too short on one side, which is contrary to International Cricket Council regulation, the ground was nevertheless approved to hold One Day Internationals during the World Cricket League tournament. The first One Day International saw Afghanistan play Canada. Three further One Day Internationals were played there, however a further two matches were scheduled to be held there but were moved due to the pitch being deemed unsatisfactory. One Day International cricket returned to the ground in 2011 when the Netherlands played Kenya in the 2011-13 ICC Intercontinental Cup One-Day.

The ground is used by Voorburg Cricket Club, who previously played at Sportpark Duivesteijn and moved grounds in 2006, first playing at a reserve ground, before moving to Sportpark Westvliet in 2007.

The Sportpark Hague is a balanced pitch. The pitch also helps both bowlers and batsman to play their vital role for their respective teams.  Batsmen do get most runs but domination of bowlers increased nowadays. The venue hosted no ODI or Test Matches in the last 10 years and has hosted 2 T20Is Matches which was won by the visiting team. Both of the matches were played between UAE and NETHERLAND where UAE won both of the matches while batting as well as bowling first.
