SA vs. NED, Match 15



The 15th match of the World Cup ODI 2023 will be played between South Africa and the Netherlands. The game is scheduled to be played at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium at Dharamsala on Tuesday, October 17.

South Africa is emerging as the dark horse of the 2023 ODI World Cup. They are currently placed at the 3rd spot of the points table with two wins from their two round-robin stage games. Quinton de Kock has been the best batsman from the side. He has smashed back-to-back centuries in the first two matches and is looking in red-hot form. His 209 runs came with 8 sixes and 20 fours with an average strike rate of 110. Aiden Markran has been also on the ladder with 162 runs scored at a strike rate of 165. The best bowler for the Proteas has been Kagiso Rabada. He has picked up 5 wickets while bowling at an economy rate of 5.24 and an average of 16.

The Netherlands on the other side are sitting in the 8th place in the points table with two losses in their round-robin stage matches. Their top run-scorer has been Colin Ackermann who has 86 runs under his belt. His compatriot Bas De Leede has also accumulated 85 runs with a strike rate of 91. Bas de Leede has also been the top wicket-taker for the Netherlands and has taken 5 scalps while bowling at an economy rate of 6.63 and an average of 25.


Match Details

Match: World Cup ODI 2023, SA vs NED, Match 15

Date: Tuesday, October 17, 2023

Time: 02:00 PM IST

Venue: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala


Pitch and Weather Report

The surface at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharamsala has a good track record for the batters. The ground mainly allows the batters to score big runs at a fast pace. The average first-innings total at this stadium is 229, but looking towards South Africa’s form, this total could be easily overtaken if they get the chance to bat first against the Netherlands.

The Dharamshala weather seems to be a bit cloudy on the match day. The batters would definitely face some difficulty under the overcast skies. The team batting first would be hoping to score near the 300-run mark to give enough room to their bowlers.

Match Prediction

The Netherlands although qualified for the marquee event will feel low after two straight defeats. Their team must step up collectively and play with more passion. The side will need more runs from the top-order batters and frequent breakthroughs from their bowling guild to give the Proteas a tough time. On the other side, South Africa has been one of the best-performing teams in this World Cup ODI 2023. Thus we fancy the Proteas to win this game.
