PAK vs NED 2nd ODI Match ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Pitch Report
The pitch at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium is anticipated to provide an advantage to bowlers, particularly fast bowlers who can take advantage of early seam and swing movement. Meanwhile, spinners can also come into play as the game progresses.
As far as batting is concerned, the conditions become more favorable for scoring significant runs in the second innings. The generous size of the boundaries will facilitate the batters in easily exchanging singles and twos. Consequently, the team winning the toss will likely look to field first.
What to expect:
Pakistan: The Pakistani batters had to struggle quite a bit against quality spin bowling in the recently concluded Asia Cup. Even their much-heralded pace attack was not really up to the mark. However, they do have a very good pace bowling attack. It is likely to bounce back and do well against the lowly-ranked Netherlands.
One of the team’s greatest strengths is the presence of their skipper Babar Azam in their middle order. He adds strength to the line-up and it is largely thanks to his batting that Pakistan succeeded in reaching the number 1 position in the ODI ICC ranking recently.
The inconsistent performance from the openers has been a major worry for Pakistan in recent games. Fakhar Zaman being out of form puts a lot of pressure on the other established batters such as Rizwan and Babar Azam. The Pak spinners were also not in great touch in the Asia Cup paling in comparison to the other sides such as India in the Asia Cup.
Some of the more dangerous players to watch out for are their opening ball combination of Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf. Another important player in the middle order is Imam ul Haq. The average number of wickets to fall for every innings at this venue is seven. So, the lower-order batting strength of Pakistan will be handy for them in case of a collapse.
Pakistan Key Players
- Babar Azam – The 28-year-old right-hander is a very calm character with the bat and in the field. He hit 151 only three ODI innings ago at the start of the 2023 Asia Cup.
- Mohammad Rizwan – The keeper-batter plays all cricket with a smile on his face and bats in a busy and attacking manner. He has a stronger T20I record but comes into this match in excellent ODI form.
- Haris Rauf – The right-arm pace bowler has been one of Pakistan’s most consistent white ball players over the last 12-18 months. He picked up a slight injury in the 2023 Asia Cup but is at full fitness ahead of this game.
- Shaheen Shah Afridi – The 23-year-old opening bowler has a strike rate of 25.6 in this format and has picked up 5 wickets on two previous occasions in ODIs. He will pitch the ball up and look for a swing early on.
Probable XI: Fakhar Zaman, Imam ul Haq, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Agha Salman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf
Pakistan Squad: Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam(c), Mohammad Rizwan(w), Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Wasim Jr, Shaheen Afridi, Saud Shakeel, Agha Salman, Usama Mir, Abdullah Shafique
Netherlands: The Netherlands will be carrying the flag of Associate teams in this edition of the World Cup. But the question is, do they have the experience and firepower to take the game to the established countries? They have certainly done it before.
The Netherlands earned their spot in the competition after they finished second in the qualifiers ahead of full members Zimbabwe, West Indies, and Ireland. It is their first appearance in the main event since 2011 when the competition was held in the Indian subcontinent. It is 4th time they have succeeded in qualifying for the main draw of the World Cup.
The Netherlands lost all the 5 games they played in the 1996 competition when they made their debut. They have managed a couple of wins since then again against lowly-ranked teams such as Scotland and Namibia.
There is not much you can judge about the recent form of the Netherlands team due to the lopsided scheduling of international cricket. The last time they played competitive cricket was back in July. However, they did record a few good wins against West Indies and Scotland in the World Cup qualifiers.
Although the stats for the Netherlands make for a demoralizing reading, the team will not be worried too much about it. They will be keener to get some useful experience while playing against established countries on a big stage.
Keep in mind that they finished within the top two positions in the World Cup qualifiers without help from several of their top cricketers such as Roelof van der Merwe, Fred Klaassen, Brandon Grover, Timm van der Gugten, Colin Ackermann, Paul van Meekeren. Some of these players will be a part of the World Cup squad for the 2023 version.
Netherlands Key Players
- Colin Ackermann – The experienced batting all-rounder showed he had the ability to stand up to Australia’s pace bowlers in their warm-up game. He averages 35.16 from six innings in this format.
- Bas de Leede – The batting all-rounder has seen both his batting and bowling go up a level or two over recent years. The 23-year-old has a top score of 123 in ODI cricket.
- Roelof van der Merwe – The 38-year-old left-arm spinner will get turn on any pitch. He enjoyed the warm-up match against Australia when he dismissed big names Alex Carey and Steve Smith.
- Logan van Beek – The medium-fast bowler also picked up two wickets in the warm-up game against Australia and has been in excellent form, across all formats, ahead of this match on Friday.
Probable XI: Vikramjeet Singh, Max O’Dowd, Wesley Baressi, Bas de Leede, Teja Nidamanuru, Colin Ackermann, Scott Edwards (c, wk), Logan van Beek, Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meerkeren, Aryan Dutt
Netherlands Squad: Vikramjit Singh, Max ODowd, Wesley Barresi, Scott Edwards(w/c), Bas de Leede, Colin Ackermann, Teja Nidamanuru, Roelof van der Merwe, Saqib Zulfiqar, Logan van Beek, Paul van Meekeren, Ryan Klein, Aryan Dutt, Sybrand Engelbrecht, Shariz Ahmad

PAK vs NED 2nd ODI Match ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Prediction
This game may not have the same buzz as England v New Zealand on Thursday but we could see another load of tense moments in this match. Our prediction is for Pakistan to emerge as big winners with the bottom order of Netherlands’ batters unlikely to be able to make significant scores. The Netherlands needs to work on their number of match winners if they are to be competitive but they are up against a very good team. We are backing Pakistan to get off to a winning start.
We expect Pakistan to win this match.

All-rounders – Colin Ackerman, Baas de Leede, Shadab Khan
Bowlers – Shaheen Afridi, Haris Rauf
PAK vs NED 2nd ODI Match ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Both Teams Top Batsmen
Our batting picks are Mohammad Rizwan, Babar Azam, and Abdullah Shafique for Pakistan. The 23-year-old opener Shafique averages 50.83 in Test cricket and has already recorded a half-century in this format from his four ODI innings. Rizwan will bat in a proactive manner and has a top score of 115 in ODIs. He has an international century in Tests, ODIs and T20Is.
Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, and Max O’Dowd are our choices with the bat for the Netherlands. New Zealand-born opener Dowd has very strong arms, has a top ODI score of 133 not out and he will look to attack the Pakistan opening bowlers in this match. de Leede has stood out for his country in this format over the last couple of years and he is far more responsible and selective with his big hitting.
PAK vs NED 2nd ODI Match ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 Both Team Top Team Bowlers
Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf, and Shadab Khan are our bowling recommendations for Pakistan. Bowling all-rounder Khan is a consistent spin bowler and if there is spin to be found on this pitch then he will be able to exploit it. 29-year-old pace bowler Rauf is accurate and quick. He has taken 53 ODI wickets from 28 games and has a strike rate of 25.6 in this format.
Our bowling tips are Bas de Leede, Logan van Beek, and Roelof van der Merwe for the Netherlands. De Leede has the ability to generate good pace and has the best bowling figures in this format of 5-52. Van der Merwe made his ODI debut for South Africa in 2009 and the team management will be hoping to utilize his experience in this tournament across this game.
