Netherlands vs South Africa- Previews and Betting Tips
The dutch side will ensure to give in their best for the last encounter of their world cup campaign. They are walking into this encounter with a clinical win over Zimbabwe in their previous encounter. Being asked to bowl first, the dutch did a fantastic job. Paul van Meekeren’s 3/29, Bas de Leede’s 2/14, and contributions from others helped bundle out Zimbabwe for a mere 117. In reply, Max O’Dowd scored a gritty 47-ball 52 to get his side over the line by 5 wickets.
Meanwhile, South Africa extended their wait to qualify after facing a disappointing loss against now-hopeful Pakistan. Despite Anrich Nortje’s 4/41, Pakistan amassed heaps of runs to set a ginormous target of 186. It was Shadab Khan’s 22-ball 52 and Iftikhar Ahmed’s 35-ball 51 that did the trick for them. The chase was never going to be easy and the Proteas lost two wickets inside 3 overs. Skipper Temba Bavuma held the innings together with his 19-ball 36 but perished to Shadab Khan on his introduction. In the end, South Africa faced a 33-run defeat after a recalculated target came into the picture because of rain.
However, the two teams have only faced each other once with South Africa winning convincingly against the dutch back in 2014. A lot has changed for the Netherlands but we predict South Africa to be the winner of today’s t20 world cup match. For an exciting encounter such as this, we recommend some in-game betting action alongside three-way betting. These offer the best returns on investment courtesy of the irresistible match odds on several betting options during the live streaming of the match.
The dutch would be looking to play their game and a win here would certainly ruin the chances of the Proteas qualifying. South Africa will need to look out for batter Max O’Dowd, the second-leading run-scorer of the tournament. He has 213 runs in 7 games at an average of 35. Contributing to the all-around department is Bas de Leede. The dutchman has 14 wickets and 212 runs in the past 10 matches and remains the key factor. As for the bowling department, Paul van Meekeren is one to look out for. The pacer has 11 wickets in just 8 games with an economy of just 5.87. The Netherlands have been exceptional with their bowling, which will be their strong suit in the upcoming encounter.
Squad: Stephan Myburgh, Max O’Dowd, Tom Cooper, Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, Scott Edwards(C)(wk), Roelof van der Merwe, Logan van Beek, Fred Klaassen, Paul van Meekeren, Brandon Glover
South Africa needs this win desperately to secure their seat into the sem-final. A lot will be riding on their bowling department as they have made life simpler for the batters. Anrich Nortke is already in the top five wicket-takers of the tournament with 10 wickets in 4 games. Accompanying him are Tabraiz Shamsi and Wayne Parnell who have taken 12 & 14 wickets respectively in a few of their recent encounters.
Quinton de Kock too will have plenty of responsibility on his shoulders with the bat. The southpaw has 263 runs in his recent 10 games and will need a big knock to get his team over the line. Alongside him will be Aiden Markram who just found his rhythm in the previous encounter. He has now amassed 274 runs in his past 10 matches. Others, like centurion Rilee Roussouw and David Miller, will also need to contribute with the bat.
Squad: Quinton de Kock(wk), Temba Bavuma(C), Rilee Rossouw, Aiden Markram, David Miller, Tristan Stubbs, Wayne Parnell, Keshav Maharaj, Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, Lungi Ngidi
