Netherlands vs Oman match details

 On July 3, the Netherlands and Oman will compete against each other in a significant Super Six match of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 at Harare Sports Club in Harare. In their last game, the Netherlands suffered a 21-run loss against Sri Lanka, while Oman was defeated by Zimbabwe by 14 runs in their last match. The match between these enthusiastic teams will commence at 12.30 PM IST or 9 AM local time.

Pitch Report

In this tournament, we have witnessed good batting conditions. The pitch has become slower during the second half of the game, causing batting to become more challenging. Therefore, the team that wins the coin toss here will look to bat first in order to strive for a high score. The fast bowlers do not have much advantage on this track. However, the spinners perform well as the ball becomes older and starts to spin sharply, particularly during the second half of the match.

Team Netherlands

The Netherlands started their campaign on a losing note against the host Zimbabwe but then they came back strongly to win back-to-back matches against the USA and Nepal. Probably, their best moment was the victory in the Super Over against West Indies. In their first Super Six match against Sri Lanka, they nearly pulled off the victory but Sri Lanka got the better of them in the end and won the game by 21 runs. The Dutch side put up a good fight till the end. 

Sri Lanka opted to bat first but couldn’t score well, thanks to the brilliant spells of Logan van Beek and Bas de Leede who picked up 3 wickets apiece. Saqib Zulfiqar also picked up 2 crucial wickets. In response to this, 4 batters of the Dutch side went for duck including both the openers Vikramjit Singh and Max O’Dowd who had done pretty well so far. Wesley Barresi scored a fine fifty but was then dismissed immediately. Bas de Leede played a handy inning of 41. The skipper Scott Edwards hard fought 67 till the end and couldn’t get them over the line since no other player supported him from the other end. 

Scott Edwards and Max O’Dowd are the top batsmen of this side. Bas de Leede and Logan van Beek have been fantastic with the bowling. They have the spirit and determination to win but they need to step all as one unit.

Team Oman

They have played a good brand of cricket this year. Initially, they started superbly with consecutive wins from Ireland and the UAE but then they lost their way completely and are coming into this contest on the back of three losses. They lost their first Super Six cricket match against the host Zimbabwe by mere 14 runs. They played well and were almost there but couldn’t finish the job. 

Oman opted to bowl first but their bowlers couldn’t hold on to the onslaught of Zimbabwean batters as they set a mammoth target of 332 runs. The bowlers were quite expensive and Fayyaz Butt picked up 4 wickets but his economy was on the higher side too. In reply, Kashyap Prajapati set the tone for the chase with his outstanding hundred. The skipper Zeeshan Maqsood, Aqib Ilyas and Ayaan Khan made vital contributions to the total but the wickets fell at regular intervals. They need to be very consistent and have to do their best in order to win this match.

NED vs OMN Match 5 Fantasy Predictions

Netherlands vs Oman match 5 fantasy predictions

Team Netherlands

  • The skipper S Edwards has been in sensational form. He is the 6th highest run-getter in this tournament so far. He scored an unbeaten 67 in the last match. He is the only batsman to score 4 fifties in this tournament.
  • Max O’Dowd is also doing well at the top. He has hit 2 fifties in this tournament. Therefore he is a good option in the batting section.
  • T Nidamanuru is a fine middle-order player. He went for a duck in the last match but he would want to score well in this match.
  • Bas de Leede and Logan van Beek are the leading wicket-takers for the team. Expect some wickets from them. 

Team Oman

  • K Prajapati smashed a fabulous hundred in the previous match and therefore his confidence would be high to score some runs in this match.
  • Aqib Ilyas is the only batter from Oman who has hit two fifties. He is a good contributor in the middle order. He scored 45 runs in the previous match.
  • A Khan is another all-rounder who can bat and bowl in the middle phases of the game. He played innings of 47 runs in the last match.
  • Bilal Khan and F Butt are the backbones of their bowling. Both have scalped 10 wickets so far. They are must-pick options in the bowlers’ section.
