Netherlands Tour of South Africa 2023

SA vs NED 2nd ODI



South Africa and the Netherlands will lock horns in the second ODI at Willowmoore Park, Benoni, at 04:30 PM IST. The Proteas team recently had a fantastic series against the Windies, where they won the ODI series but lost the T20Is. While South Africa will seek this game as they seek revenge for their World Championship loss against them.

The central topic of conversation leading up to this series has been how few of the essential South African players will be absent from the opening of the Indian T20 League. However, given that 2023 will host the World Championship, a lot will be riding on the South African team's ability to get its act together before the significant competition.

On paper, the South African batting order is among the riskiest batting orders. This is because they cover all areas, from Quinton de Kock's strong start to Aiden Markram's steadiness to David Miller's ruthless end. However, the batters are in excellent form going into the series and will try to keep it up against the Dutch.

Kagiso Rabada, Anrich Nortje, and Lungi Ngidi are three bowlers who can give any batter headaches on a quick, bouncy surface. But, as the proteas' outstanding white ball performer for the past few years, Tabraiz Shamsi remains the bowling group leader.

The South African team is better on paper, but they plan to enjoy themselves and play the daring style of cricket that has made them so well-known and adored.

If the Dutch are to pull off a surprise, they must rely on the top-order and middle-order to make runs. Wesley Barresi, Scott Edwards, and Max ODowd are crucial. And will play first for the Dutch in the match. Although the lower middle order can help, the top ranking is expected to score the most runs.

The bowling department is very remarkable because they have performed well in the limited chances they have had. The Dutch bowling assault will be led by Shariz Ahmad and Vivian Kingma, who will try to set the tone. Paul van Meekeren will also have a heavy burden to bear.

On the other hand, the Dutch will attend not only to have fun but also to play the daring cricket for which they are renowned and to produce an outcome. Therefore, South Africa will triumph over the Netherlands.
