Peter Borren Bio

Peter William Borren, born in Christchurch, New Zealand, is a renowned cricket player who represents the Netherlands national cricket team. Born on December 21, 1983, Borren initially played for Canterbury ‘A’ and the New Zealand Under-19 team before making the decision to represent the Netherlands.

Known for his natural talent and versatility as an all-rounder, Borren’s cricketing journey began without any serious coaching until he joined the Dutch squad. His vibrant and energetic presence on the field earned him the nickname ‘Baldrick’, a reference to the character in the famous British TV series Blackadder.

Borren made his One Day International (ODI) debut against Sri Lanka, where his medium pace was unfortunately taken apart. Despite picking up 1 wicket for 94 runs in his 10 overs, his performances in the World Cricket League in Kenya impressed enough to secure him a place in the Dutch squad for the 2007 World Cup held in the Caribbean.

The year 2007 proved to be a significant one for Borren as he showcased his all-round ability during a match against Canada in Toronto, narrowly missing out on scoring his maiden ODI hundred. He was dismissed stumped for an impressive 96 runs. This confident innings can be attributed to Netherlands’ thrilling last-ball victory over England in the opening match of the ICC World Twenty20 at Lord’s a month prior.

Borren played a pivotal role in the historic win against England, taking the important wicket of Eoin Morgan and contributing a quick-fire 30 runs off just 25 balls, including a massive six off Paul Collingwood’s bowling. His partnership with Tom de Grooth, worth 50 runs, turned the game in favor of the Netherlands.

Recognizing his talent and contributions, in January 2010, Borren became one of the first Netherlands players to be awarded a central contract, marking a significant step in the professionalization of cricket at the Associate level. He was also appointed as the captain of the national side for the World Cricket League Division One tournament in July 2010.

Peter William Borren continues to contribute his skills and experience to the Netherlands cricket team, playing a significant role in their growth and achievements on the global stage. With his natural talent, determination, and leadership, Borren has become an inspiration for aspiring cricketers in the Netherlands and beyond.
