NED vs PAK: Netherlands vs Pakistan 1st ODI Dream11 Prediction, Playing XI, Pitch Report & Injury Updates

NED vs PAK 1st ODI Dream11 Prediction: Tuesday’s opening ODI match between the Netherlands (NED) and Pakistan (PAK) will take place at Hazelaarweg in Rotterdam. Even though they were defeated by New Zealand in a two-match T20I series at home earlier this month, the Netherlands had some remarkable individual performances. Despite losing to Zimbabwe in the final T20 World Cup Qualifying match, they nevertheless earned a spot in the massive competition in Australia. For this series, the management has called in veteran batter Wesley Barresi because seven important players are absent from the lineup due to commitments to The Hundred and The Royal London One-Day Cup 2022.

Pakistan comes into this match following a 1-1 Test series tie with Sri Lanka last month. Their most recent ODI series against the West Indies and Australia were both victories for them. To take on the Netherlands, Pakistan has selected a talented team. Shaheen Afridi, the team’s top-ranked pacer, is on the roster, but captain Babar Azam has stated that he won’t be risked for two games due to his recent rehabilitation from a knee injury sustained during the Sri Lanka tour. Pakistan has dominated the Netherlands in their last three encounters, and they are anticipated to continue that trend in this game and the series.

Top Picks for NED vs PAK Dream11 Match:

Top Picks – Batters

Imam-ul-Haq is in second place on the ICC ODI hitters rankings, 77 points behind World No. 1 batter Babar Azam. With three hundreds and two fifties in the six ODI games this year, he has been in the best shape of his life. In the just finished Sri Lanka Test series, he also amassed two fifty-run scores and a century.

The seasoned Dutch batsman Tom Cooper has amassed 1049 runs in just 25 innings of ODI play, averaging an outstanding 45.6 and striking out at a remarkable 70.49 percent. In this series, he will be a crucial batter for the Netherlands.

Top Picks – All-Rounders

The talented all-rounder Shadab Khan has been playing well since making a full recovery from the injury he sustained in the PSL 2022. With 134 runs and 9 wickets in the Vitality Blast 2022, Shadab performed admirably. Shadab has so far amassed 69 wickets at an average of 30.82 and an economy rate of 5.11 in his 49 ODI innings.

Top Picks – Bowlers

In the absence of Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali, Pakistan will rely heavily on right-arm pacer Haris Rauf. He was outstanding in the Vitality Blast and County cricket prior to taking four wickets in the opening ODI match against the West Indies.

The talented all-rounder Mohammad Nawaz claimed 10 wickets in Pakistan’s final two Test matches against Sri Lanka last month. In three ODI games against the West Indies, he got seven wickets, including 4/19 in the second game.

Top Picks – Wicketkeeper

In three One-Day International matches versus England in June of this year, Dutch captain Scott Edwards scored three hundreds. In just 20 innings of ODI play, he has scored 692 runs at an average of 38.44 and an overall strike rate of 83.47.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for NED vs PAK Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Scott Edwards, Babar Aazam (c), Imam-ul-Haq, Tom Cooper, Fakhar Zaman (vc), Shadab Khan, Logan van Beek, Mohammad Nawaz, Haris Rauf, Shahnawaz Dahani, Aryan Dutt.

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for NED vs PAK Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Mohammad Rizwan, Scott Edwards (vc), Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq (c), Tom Cooper, Wesley Barresi, Shadab Khan, Logan van Beek, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Wasim, Aryan Dutt.

NED vs PAK Risky Captaincy Choice:

To reach 1000 runs in ODI cricket, Mohammad Rizwan, the great Pakistani wicketkeeper hitter, needs just 18 runs. Comparing his 50-over statistics to T20I and Test cricket stats, they are awful. In 47 ODI games, he has scored just 982 runs at an average of 28.05 and an 86.51 strike rate.

The seasoned right-arm bowler Logan van Beek has so far taken 19 wickets in 14 ODI games for an average of 32.31 and an economy rate of 5.23. In the first T20I game against New Zealand, he picked up two wickets. But he was ineffective in the final game. He only succeeded in taking one wicket in three games during the Netherlands’ most recent ODI series against England.

Player you should avoid:

Due to the absence of several important pacers. Naseem Shah, a 19-year-old fast, is anticipated to make his ODI debut for Pakistan in this game. Despite having 33 wickets in his first 13 Test matches, you should steer clear of the younster for this match. Due to his inexperience in international white-ball cricket.
