Australia vs Netherlands, Match 24 ICC World Cup
25 October 2023, 2:00pm IST, Arun Jaitley Stadium, Delhi
Here's our Australia vs Netherlands Dream11 prediction before the two teams meet in the ICC World Cup 2023 for the third time ever.
The match no. 24 of the tournament will witness Australia (AUS) and Netherlands (NED) taking on each other at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Wednesday, 25th October. This will be a day-night match and will begin at 2:00 PM IST.
Australia didn't have a great start to their World Cup campaign, losing to India and South Africa in back-to-back games. The five-time former champions have managed to get their campaign on track with victories over Sri Lanka and Pakistan, where they scored plenty of runs and took wickets regularly.
The Netherlands came into the tournament with little to no expectations but have delivered some competitive cricket and have one win to their credit. They produced arguably the biggest upset in World Cup history when they stunned South Africa by 38 runs.
This match will be important for both the teams as the Netherlands look to topple another strong team while Australia will be vary of their opponent.

Pitch Report and Expected Weather Conditions for Australia vs Netherlands
Arun Jaitley Stadium, Pitch Report: The pitches at the Arun Jaitley Stadium have traditionally been on the slower side with assistance for spinners to keep the runs low and take wickets. This World Cup, however, has witnessed very good surfaces to bat on, where runs are available aplenty.
Expect big scores in this match if Australia bat first as the flatter pitch and short boundaries will help shotmaking. Bowlers will be hoping to get some grip off the pitch.

Australia vs Netherlands Dream11 Match Prediction
Wicket-keepers: Scott Edwards
Batters: David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steve Smith
All-rounders: Glenn Maxwell, Bas de Leede, Marcus Stoinis
Bowlers: Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Logan van Beek
Recommended Captain: David Warner
Recommended Vice-captain: Bas de Leede
Considering how the pitches have played out in three matches at Arun Jaitley Stadium this tournament, we are relying on batters and all-rounders more in our Dream11 team for this match. We have also tipped more players from Australia as they are the stronger team.
The Netherlands wicket-keeper Scott Edwards, being the part of the weaker batting line-up, will get more game-time than Josh Inglis. From the batting section, David Warner and Mitch Marsh are must-picks. Steve Smith hasn't done much in the tournament, but you can always bank on his class. Our Dream11 Prediction is for him to star.
From the all-rounders, Glenn Maxwell and Bas de Leede add tremendous value to their side. Marcus Stoinis bowled well in the previous game and can punish the bowlers with the bat.
In the bowling section, going with as many frontline Australia bowlers as possible makes sense. We have picked Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa. The Netherlands' Logan van Beek has picked four wickets and scored 97 runs in the tournament, and can be backed to come good.
For the captaincy pick, David Warner seems to be the best option. Warner is coming off an incredible knock of 163 against Pakistan. Bas de Leede has seven wickets in the tournament and has scored one fifty. You can back him as the vice-captain for this game.
Australia vs Netherlands Dream 11 win prediction: Tip Australia to win
The Netherlands have beaten South Africa in this competition but will be up against a mountain in this game. Australia have a strong batting line-up and they have found form in the last couple of games. The men in yellow also have a better bowling attack on paper. Our Dream11 tip is for Australia to win this match.
