James Tredwell says the Kent Spitfires cannot afford to underestimate the Netherlands as they continue their YB40 campaign in Deventer today.

Monday’s one-run win at Warwickshire Bears was followed by Wednesday’s rain-hit seven-wicket defeat at Nottinghamshire Outlaws, and after the trip across the Channel, Kent play their first one-day game of the year at Canterbury, against Worcestershire, on Wednesday.

Tredwell said: “We can draw confidence from the win at Edgbaston, but we won’t get carried away. 

“Holland are better than people give them credit for. They have played a fair amount of international cricket now, and have come on leaps and bounds.

“We can’t afford to underestimate them and we have to try to put our own game out there."

Monday's match-winner Adam Ball is expected to return to the squad after missing Wednesday's game due to University commitments.
