“Bernardina, who participated in the 2013 WBC and reached the semifinals, was unable to play in the 2017 WBC because her team, KIA, did not release him,” he said. “Experienced Bernardina will play an important role in the national team.” .

The Netherlands are in Group A along with Chinese Taipei, Cuba, Italy and Panama. If the Netherlands make it through the group stage, there is a possibility that they will meet South Korea in Group B in the knockout tournament stage in the quarterfinals, depending on the case.
