West End Park International Cricket Stadium - Doha, Qatar
AFG vs NED 1st ODI
Afghanistan won by 36 runs
Rahmanullah Gurbaz is coming off from a decent run in the Abu Dhabi T10 League. Since he has some form behind him, we feel he will perform well in the coming series. He is our pick for Afghanistan top batter.
Rashid Khan’s last performance was in the BBL, where he picked up 6 wickets. Rashid is a world-class bowler and undoubtedly is a good pick for the top bowler from Afghanistan.
Pieter Seelaar is very experienced in this format of the game and has taken 54 wickets. It’s safe to start with someone who has already proven his credentials and Seelaar is one such player. Back him as Netherlands top bowler.

AFG vs NED Match Toss Prediction
Since it will be a slow wicket, both teams would like to bat first and put runs on the board. We are not sure if there will be dew. If it is, then captains might bowl first.
AFG vs NED Pitch Report
The surface will be on the sower side and run scoring won’t be easy, especially against the spinners. However, it’s a small ground thus we could see a high scoring game.
It’s winter time in Qatar and the temperatures will be in the early 20s, which will be very comfortable for the players.

Afghanistan Team News & Playing 11
AFG Team News
Hashmatullah Shahidi has been named the skipper of the side. Afghanistan will have to find a balanced combination for the side. Rahmanullah Gurbaz is likely to open alongside Usman Ghani. The skipper, Gulbadin Naib and possibly Najib will play in the middle order. Afghanistan may also play three spinners and go in with Rashid, Mujeeb and Qais Ahmed.
AFG Key Players
Rahmanullah Gurbaz - The destructive opener can change the course of the game in no time. Gurbaz recently played in Abu Dhabi T10 League and played a few crisp knocks. While the format was different, he has some game time behind him which can be a huge plus.
Rashid Khan - Not much need to be said about Rashid Khan. He is a genuine match-winner and undoubtedly will hold the key for Afghanistan.
Qais Ahmed - The young spinner has made a reputation for himself after playing in several T20 leagues around the globe. With all his variations, he can be a big threat to the Netherlands.
AFG Team Form
Afghanistan recently played a series against Ireland in UAE and won all three games comprehensively.
The Netherlands will be without the services of their star all-rounder Ryan ten Doeschate who has announced his retirement. Still, the Netherlands have enough quality in the batting.
NED Key Players
Max O Dowd - Max O Dowd is a key player in this Dutch side. He is the aggressor and is responsible for giving the team a brisk start. He was in good form last year and scored 194 runs in 6 games. Netherlands chances of winning a series will rest on his shoulders.
Fred Klaasen - The pacer has taken 16 wickets in eight ODI games he has played. Afghanistan have most of their batters as right-handers thus Klaassen's left-arm pace will be useful against them.
Pieter Seelaar - The skipper is a genuine all-rounder. Even though he does not have a great record in ODIs, his recent performances in the T20Is have been impressive. He'll look to take that form into ODIs and fetch his team an elite win.
NED Team Form
Netherlands last played the ODI series against Ireland in 2021 and it ended in a 1-1 draw.
Netherlands Predicted Playing 11
Bas De Leede, Musa Ahmed, Colin Ackermann, Pieter Seelaar, Scott Edwards, Boris Gorlee, Clayton Floyd, Fred Klassen, Vivian Kingma, Brandon Glover, Ryan Klein
AFG vs NED Dream11 Prediction
Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Scott Edwards will be our two wicket-keepers in the team. Gurbaz had a decent run in Abu Dhabi T10 League, while Edwards has shown glimpses of brilliance in T20Is and is expected to do well in 50 over games as well.
Najibullah Zadran, Bas de Leede and Colin Ackermann are the three batters we feel can score runs. Zadran was impressive in the 20-20 world cup and thus can be backed to continue that form in the ODI series as well. Bas de Leede and Colin Ackermann are two of the key batters from Netherlands.
Gulbadin Naib, and Pieter Seelaar will contribute with their all-round skills. Naib has plenty of experience behind him and is one of the few players who has played a lot of ODI cricket. Seelaar is a good bowler.
Afghanistan spin trio of Rashid Khan, Mujeeb ur Rahman and Qais Ahmed will be hard to face for Netherlands, while the Dutch will expect Fred Klaassen to pick wickets with new as well as old ball.
Rashid Khan can be backed as captain, while Pieter Seelaar can be his deputy.
AFG vs NED Dream11 Team Prediction
Batsmen:Colin Ackermann, Bas de Leede, Najibullah Zadran
All Rounder:Pieter Seelaar (vc), Gulbadin Naib
Wicket Keeper:Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Scott Edwards
Bowler:Rashid Khan (C) Mujeeb ur Rahman, Qais Ahmed, Fred Klaassen
