National coach Ryan Campbell, in an official release said: "I'm extremely excited to announce the 2021 T20 World Cup squad for the Netherlands.

"Colin Ackermann will step up to the vice-captaincy role and it'll be fantastic to have veteran Ryan ten Doeschate come with us for one last hoorah.

I look forward to seeing them make a real impact during this tournament," he added.
