World Cup ODI 2023

ENG vs. NED, Match 40



England will be crossing swords with the Netherlands for the 40th match of the World Cup ODI 2023. The game is scheduled at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune for Wednesday, November 8. 

The defending champions will play for their pride after getting an unfortunate exit from the World Cup. Their last game against Australia which they lost confirmed their departure. Now the Three-headed Lions must win this game to qualify for the Champions Trophy 2025. 

The Netherlands on the other end, is also in a must-win scenario but also with a significant margin to stay as a strong contender for the World Cup semi-finals. They lost their last game against Afghanistan in the last match and will try to learn from their mistakes in order to perform better. We highly anticipate another upset by the Orange Army in this forthcoming match.

Pitch and Weather Report

The pitch at MCA has traditionally been favourable for batting. Pacers might get some help from the deck during the initial passage of play but would need to be very precise with their line and lengths. The captain winning the toss should look to bowl first. 

Mostly sunny conditions with a patch of clouds and a maximum temperature of 34 degree Celsius is forecasted for the day.

Match Prediction

The Netherlands may have won only two matches in this tournament so far but those two wins came against formidable sides and have also not failed to surprise all their opponents faced till now. Their top order needs to perform well in order to put up a good show in front of the English side. England will hope to play well, and win in order to book a slot for the next Champions Trophy. Based on the team strength we expect England to win this match.
