Privilege to have represented The Netherlands: Ryan ten Doeschate

The 41-year-old’s 15-year-long international career has officially come to an end

Netherlands all-rounder Ryan ten Doeschate, who announced last month that he would be retiring from professional cricket at the end of 2021, stated in an official release that it ‘has always been a privilege to represent The Netherlands’ after having played his last professional game for the country. 

Ten Doeschate featured in the Netherlands’ first two games of the 2021 T20 World Cup, but was left out of Friday’s clash against Sri Lanka, thereby bringing to end a 15-year long international career. The 41-year-old represented Netherlands in 57 international matches, and will be ending his ODI career with an astonishing batting average of 67.00.

"It's been a tough tour to finish on but it's been a pleasure to be a part of the efforts again. It has always been a privilege to represent The Netherlands,” ten Doeschate said in an official release posted on Netherlands cricket’s website.

“The professionalism and dedication that this team and support staff have shown has been inspirational. I'm grateful to the players, coaches and everyone involved with the KNCB for allowing me to have enjoyed some of the spectacular highs of international cricket."

Netherlands head coach Ryan Campbell claimed that he was ‘honored’ to have coached the veteran, who, apart from being a Netherlands great, is also an Essex legend.

"Sometimes words don’t mean enough when summing up someone’s career. It has been an honor for me as a coach to have him. His skill, knowledge of the game & calmness under pressure was outstanding. Finally, he represented cricket hope to the Dutch, he gave us a belief that we could compete against anyone. He will be sorely missed as a player but hopefully not lossed to Dutch cricket entirely,” Campbell said.

Ten Doeschate, unfortunately, did not have the greatest of World Cups. He scored a golden duck against Ireland, and did not bat against Namibia, before being dropped for the Sri Lanka clash. The 41-year-old also did not bowl in the competition.
