PAK vs NED Betting Tips

  • Captain Babar Azam is one of the most reliable international batters across all formats. Although he can sometimes be criticised for his run-rate in ODIs, his figures are very impressive and he averages 58.16 from his 105 innings, going to triple figures on 19 occasions. He is our tip for Pakistan’s highest run scorer against Netherlands. Shaheen Shah Afridi is a match-winner and is particularly hard to face at the start of an innings with the new ball. The left-arm pace bowler is a strong choice for Pakistan's top wicket taker in this game.
  • Colin Ackermann was playing county cricket in Leicester and in Hove less than a month ago, hitting scores of 93 not out and 136. He will gradually look to improve his strike-rate when at the crease and is a genuine match-winner. We are backing him to be Netherlands’ highest run scorer on Friday. Logan van Beek has been taking wickets across all formats over the last couple of months. He was particularly impressive during the Global T20 Canada and he is our pick for Netherlands’ top wicket taker against Pakistan.
  • After hitting scores of 80 and 90 in the warm-up fixtures against New Zealand and Australia, we recommend backing Babar Azam to hit over 31.5 runs in this ODI.

PAK vs NED ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips, Cricket World Cup 2023

Match 2 of the 2023 Cricket World Cup sees Pakistan and Netherlands go head to head at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad on Friday afternoon. Pakistan did not get out of the group stage in the 2019 Cricket World Cup although it was very close with New Zealand pipping them to a top four place on net-run-rate. Netherlands are about to begin their first Cricket World Cup in this format since 2011. Read on as we preview this match. The day-night game gets underway at 14:00 local time.

Pakistan will feel they were not far away from being genuine challengers at the 2019 Cricket World Cup and they will argue that they are a stronger side this time around. They should have no problems beating Netherlands in this match.

Netherlands are likely to be the underdog in any match they play in this tournament so we expect them to embrace it. However, they are up against one of the best teams and this could be a tough afternoon and evening in Hyderabad.

PAK vs NED Match Toss Prediction

Four teams have won ODIs after batting first with three winning after fielding first at this venue. Our prediction is that both sides will want to bat first in this match.

PAK vs NED Pitch Report

The pitch at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium generally gets a little easier to bat on after the ball has got a little softer. There will be turn for the spinners but we expect the pace bowlers to get more assistance from the surface.

Earlier this year, Shubman Gill smashed 208 runs in an ODI against New Zealand on this track and in the same match Siraj picked 4 wickets, which tells a lot about the latest conditions of the pitch. The average 1st innings score is around 285 and the par score will be more than 300.

Hyderabad Weather Report

Fine weather is forecast across Friday afternoon and evening in Hyderabad. The temperature will drop from 32 degrees to 24 degrees across the game.

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11

Pakistan Team News

As ever, Pakistan come into a Cricket World Cup 2023 with a fine range of pace bowlers to choose from. However, they are without Naseem Shah, the teenage right-arm quick, who will miss the entire competition after having shoulder surgery earlier this month.

Pakistan Team 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.

Pakistan Key Batsmen Stats

Player Mat (ODI) Inns Runs HS Ave SR 100s 50s
Babar Azam 108 105 5409 158 58.16 89.12 19 28
Mohammad Rizwan 65 59 1693 115 36.80 88.59 2 12
  • 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 swing early on. 
  • Shadab Khan - Shadab Khan is one of the key all-rounders in the Pakistan team and his spin abilities are expected to fetch wickets on the Indian pitches which favour the spinners. Shadab Khan has scored 734 runs and picked 83 wickets in 64 ODIs so far.

Pakistan vs Netherlands Betting Odds

According to the bookies, Pakistan are very strong favourites for this game and can be backed at 1.03. Netherlands are very much the underdogs at 8.50.

Who will win Pakistan vs Netherlands ODI Match?

Pakistan are expected to go quite far in this tournament unlike Netherlands who hardly any pundits are backing to win a match! Pakistan have the strongest players in all positions in this match.

PAK vs NED Top Team 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 pro-active 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 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 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 Netherlands. De Leede has the ability to generate good pace and has 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 utilise his experience in this tournament across this game.

🏆 Pakistan vs Netherlands 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. Netherlands need 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.
