SA vs NED 3rd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
After cruising past a depleted Netherlands side by 8 wickets, South Africa would be looking to ascertain their place directly in this year’s ICC World Cup by registering another win against the former nation, this time at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. Ahead of this matchup on Sunday, let us take a detailed look at the predicted playing XI, team news, weather report, and much more.
South Africa dominated the away side from the first over in Benoni. Not only did their bowlers take wickets but 6 of their 7 bowlers used economy rates under 5 runs per over. When the target was low, the captain - Temba Bavuma stepped up on the big stage to score an unbeaten 88 runs off just 79 balls.
On the other hand, the Netherlands had Vikramjit Singh and Anil Nidamanuru getting off to good starts, managing to score in the 40s but the South African bowling lineup proved to be too good for them. No other batsman apart from the ones mentioned even managed to score 20 runs, getting all out for 189.

SA Team News
After registering a thumping 8 wickets victory, it seems unlikely that South Africa is going to make any changes for their upcoming contest on Sunday.
SA Key Players
- Temba Bavuma: The South Africa captain led from the front in the 2nd ODI as he scored an emphatic half-century to lead his side to a dominant win despite Quinton de Kock getting out early.
- Sisanda Magala: The 32-year-old right-arm fast-medium not only took 3 wickets but even gave just 37 runs in his 8 overs, bowling 2 maidens as well.
- Tabraiz Shamsi: The experienced spinner took 3 wickets against the Netherlands in the 2nd ODI and will be itching to take the bowling unit in the middle over once again.
SA Team Form
The Proteas are entering the 3rd ODI on the backs of 2 consecutive wins.Given that a win in this series will directly seal their berth in the ICC World Cup later this year, the Proteas would be raring to showcase why they belong alongside the most elite.

Netherlands Team News & Playing 11
NED Team News
After the Netherlands' batting order failed to make an impact against the Proteas in Benino, there are bound to be some changes in the batting order. One which seems primary will be the inclusion of Tom Cooper
NED Key Players
- Max O’Dowd: If the Dutch side is to pull off an upset in Johannesburg, Dowd will need to counter-attack the bowlers of the opposition not only in the powerplay but should also be batting as deep as possible.
- Shariz Ahmed: Having taken 9 wickets in the last 5 games for the Dutch side, Ahmed will be given a chance to bowl much earlier in the 3rd ODI as the pitch favors the spinners better.
- Anil Nidamanuru: Having scored a team-high tally of 48 runs in the previous game, Nidamanuru is surely riding high on confidence when he comes in, to bat.
NED Team Form
The Dutch had knocked South Africa out of the ICC T20 World Cup in 2022 but in the 50-over format their form has been discouraging as they won only 2 games in more a 20 played. That being said, the Netherlands did beat Zimbabwe in one of the 3-game ODI series previously.
Netherlands Predicted Playing 11
Aryan Dutt, Anil Nidamanuru, Tom Cooper, Shariz Ahmad, Ryan Klein, Fred Klaassen, Paul Van Meekeren, Vikramjit Singh, Scott Edwards, Colin Ackermann, Max O Dowd

Who will win South Africa vs Netherlands 3rd ODI Match?
Although the Netherlands have often pulled out an upset from their box of surprises as they have the necessary assets to do so. But the South African conditions seem to be too hard of a challenge for the away side. Moreover, with Wanderers Stadium’s wicket offering for help for the batsmen, the Dutch batting lineup hasn’t been able to counter-attack the raw pace of Rabada, Jansen, and Magala.
