ODI 1st 2022 Pakistan Vs Netherlands Match Prediction: Pakistan Has A Very Strong Batting And Bowling Attack


The 3-match ODI series between Pakistan and Netherlands will be starting on 16th August and this series is also a part of the ICC ODI champions League.

The men in Green will cross swords with the Netherlands in the 1st One Day International at Hazelaarweg, Rotterdam on 16th August. This is an important series for both teams as it is a part of the ICC ODI Champions League. Pakistan will be hoping to get some crucial 30 points from this series while the Netherlands will be hoping to give tough competition to the visitors.

ODI 1st 2022 Pakistan Vs Netherlands Match Prediction

Pakistan has recently announced its squad for this series and it is a very strong squad. The 19-year-old pace sensation Naseem Shah has been included in place of the experienced but out-of-form Hasan Ali. The conditions in the Netherlands will be quite similar to English conditions and Pakistan has a strong fast bowling department to get the full benefit from it. The pace battery of Green Shirts includes Haris Rauf, Shahnawaz Dahani, Naseem Shah, and Mohammad Wasim Jr and all of them are 145-plus speed bowlers.

The highest-ranked Pakistani pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi won't be available for the 1st two games due to an injury. Pakistan has played just two ODI series in 2022 where they managed to beat both Australia and West Indies at home. The men in green defeated Australia by 2-1 while they whitewashed West Indies by 3-0. Pakistan has been unbeaten in their last 5 games and it will be quite difficult for the Netherlands to tackle this mighty Pakistani side.

The Netherlands will come into this game after losing the 2-match T20I series against New Zealand recently. Although they lost both games but there were some outstanding individual knocks from their batters. They showed some excellent fights in the first game but still, New Zealand won by 16 runs and in the second and final game, the Black Caps went on to win the series with another 8-wicket victory over the hosts.

Some key Netherlands players are missing due to their involvement in The Hundred and The Royal London One-Day Cup 2022. It is a very big chance for the Netherlands to register their 1st win over Pakistan but they will have to play some extraordinary cricket to pull up this miracle.

Pakistan Vs Netherlands Possible Star Batter Of The Match

Babar Azam

Babar Azam is one of the best and technically sound batters of this era. He is currently ruling the white ball format and he is the number 1 ranked batter in both T20I and ODI formats. Babar Azam has just played 6 ODIs this year where he managed to score 3 brilliant hundreds and 2 half-centuries. His white ball form is just insane and once again the pressure for scoring big runs will be on his shoulders.

Pakistan Vs Netherlands Probable Star Bowler Of The Match

Muhammed Nawaz

Muhammed Nawaz has been excellent with the ball in all the 3 formats for his side. The left-arm spinner bowled really well in Pakistan's previous series against West Indies. He picked up 7 wickets in that series including a match-winning performance of 4-19 for his side. He will be a key bowler against the Netherlands due to his variations.

Pakistan Vs Netherlands Probable Star All-Rounder Of The Match

Shadab Khan

Shadab Khan has been in good touch since his return to the International side after suffering an injury during PSL 2022. He is delivering with both bat and bowl for his side while his fielding needs no introduction as he is currently one best fielders in the world. Shadab recently scored a fighting knock of 86 runs when his team was struggling to score runs. Shadab Khan will be the key player for Pakistan in this match.

Pakistan Vs Netherlands Match Prediction Who Will Win

The Netherlands showed some good individual performance against New Zealand but they failed to win the match. They still need a lot of improvements to beat a strong side like Pakistan.

Pakistan has a very strong batting and bowling attack and most probably they won't find any difficulty to beat this Netherlands side.

Hence, we predict that Pakistan will beat the Netherlands in the 1st ODI of this series.
