The Netherlands crushed Italy by 94 runs in the first T20I of a four-match series on Tuesday, scoring 178 for 4 and restricting their opponents to 84 for 9. However, they did so while selecting a player who did not meet the ICC's player eligibility requirements. The KNCB reported this to the ICC after realising their blunder.

The board stated in a press release on Wednesday morning: "The ICC has informed the Royal Dutch Cricket Association of an irregularity in the line-up of the Dutch Women's Cricket Team in the match between the Netherlands and Italy on Tuesday, ."

"Although no additional details have been communicated yet, the KNCB acknowledges that it was correctly identified for this error and will make the necessary adjustments in the next match to comply with the regulations," it further added.

The Netherlands made two T20I debuts against Italy: Madison Landsman and Sanya Khurana. The KNCB has not confirmed the identity of the player in question.

The ICC has yet to publicly comment on the violation of their player eligibility standards. There are several possible consequences, including the player's suspension and the "adjustment, overturning, or amendment" of the match's result.

As per ESPNcricinfo, the Dutch board also reaffirmed its support for the women's side, adding, "The KNCB is committed to developing the Netherlands Women's Cricket team and is ambitious for the team to continue to progress in the ICC T20I and 50-over World Cup pathway competitions."

After their T20I series against Italy, the Netherlands will play Papua New Guinea, Scotland, and Hong Kong next month. They are placed 15th in the world in the ICC's Women's T20I rankings.
