AFG vs NED – Team Previews
In the last game, Afghanistan’s middle-order has come alive, with the top-order shining yet again with their opener Rahmanullah Gurbaz hitting a responsible century. In addition, the spinners and the left-arm pacer Fareed Ahmad were brilliant with the ball, keeping the Netherlands batting unit under the required run-rate throughout the game. As the third ODI is a dead rubber, we might see a few debutant Afghani cricketers playing their first ODI.

The only hope of the Netherlands side was the form of their wicket keeper-cum-opening batsman, Scott Edwards. He took the team forward single-handedly in the last game, and when he went out as the fourth-wicket for 147 runs, there was nothing more for the Dutch side in the chase. Earlier, Fred Klaassen striked early in the Afghanistan innings picked up the wicket of Usman Ghani in the very first ball he faced. However, the contributions from the top and middle-order batsmen made the Afghan victory unstoppable.
