England Tour of Netherlands 2022: 3rd ODI – Netherlands vs England – Preview and Updates

The Netherlands are set to face England in the final game of the three-match ODI series at the VRA Cricket Ground, with the visitors having already won the series. The home team’s bowling performances have been far below par in both games, while England’s batters have been outstanding. They will try to end the series on a high note by putting on a strong performance in the final game.

England, on the other hand, has been dominant in both batting and bowling, and the current World champions are expected to easily defeat the hosts. In the previous game, Jason Roy was back among the runs, while Eoin Morgan’s form struggle continued. In both games, the left-hander was dismissed for a duck, and he will be desperate for runs.

Netherlands Team News:

The Netherlands batted first after winning the toss in the second ODI, and while they made a respectable 235/7, it was far from enough to defeat England, who reached their victory target in just 36.1 overs.

Pieter Seelaar missed the match due to a back injury that has plagued him for a long time, prompting the 34-year-old to announce his retirement with immediate effect during the second ODI.

The captaincy has been taken over by wicket-keeper Scott Edwards, who led the team on Sunday and will do so again in this final ODI as his side attempts to draw closer to England, despite the fact that the series is over.

Netherlands Squad

Pieter Seelaar (c), Max O’Dowd, Vikramjit Singh, Tom Cooper, Bas de Leede, Scott Edwards, Musa Ahmad, Teja Nidamanuru, Tim Pringle, Shariz Ahmad, Logan van Beek, Philippe Boissevain, Aryan Dutt, Clayton Floyd, Vivian Kingma, Ryan Klein, Fred Klaassen, Shane Snater

Players to watch out for:

Max O’Dowd

Max O’Dowd has scored 55, 89, 51, and 39 runs in his last five ODIs and is in excellent form.

Logan van Beek

Logan van Beek has had an outstanding year in ODIs this year, scoring 94 runs and taking 12 wickets in just six matches, all against quality opposition such as New Zealand, WI, and now England.

Possible Playing XI:

Scott Edwards (C), Fred Klaassen, Logan van Beek, Tom Cooper, Teja Nidamanuru, Bas de Leede, Tim Pringle, Max O’Dowd, Vikramjit Singh, Aryan Dutt, Vivian Kingma

England Team News:

England found themselves chasing the second time around in Amstelveen after breaking the ODI record score batting first in the previous match, and despite losing four wickets, they won easily as expected.

The tourists’ main concern was captain Eoin Morgan being dismissed for 0 once more, and England’s World Cup-winning skipper’s form has to be considered a concern with tougher challenges ahead, so a big score in this final ODI would be most welcome.

Brydon Carse, a right-arm fast bowler who came into the side and performed well, is likely to keep his spot, while Reece Topley may be rested and Sam Curran, who sat out on Sunday, may be recalled.

England Squad

Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, David Payne, Adil Rashid, Reece Topley, David Willey, Luke Wood, Brydon Carse

Players to watch out for:

Dawid Malan

Dawid Malan has only played seven One-Day Internationals (ODIs), but he has scored 283 runs at an average of 56.6, including a century (in the most recent match) and two fifties.

Jos Buttler

Jos Buttler totaled 223 fantasy points after scoring 162* in the previous match. His confidence will be sky high after a fantastic season with the bat in the recent Indian T20 league, where he was the leading run-scorer with 863 runs in just 17 matches.

David Willey

David Willey has been in and out of England’s ODI squad but has never disappointed with the ball, taking 2, 2, 4, 3, 1, 2 & 5 wickets in his last 7 ODIs. He can also contribute fantasy points with the bat, as he has a career batting average of 23.56, including two fifties.

Reece Topley

Reece Topley is someone who guarantees fantasy points in every match, having taken 22 wickets in 14 career ODIs and going wicketless in only two.

Possible Playing XI:

Eoin Morgan (c), Moeen Ali, Jos Buttler, Brydon Carse, Sam Curran, Liam Livingstone, Dawid Malan, Adil Rashid, Jason Roy, Phil Salt, David Willey

Netherlands vs England Top Players:

Scott Edwards: If only the other Dutch players could take a page from their captain’s book, the Netherlands’ situation would not be so dire, as captain Edwards is leading his team from the front.

In the last two games, the 25-year-old wicketkeeper-batter scored 150 runs at a strike rate of 116.27, while no other batter on his team has scored more than 70 runs. Edwards scored an unbeaten 56-ball 72 in the first game, followed by a 73-ball 78 in the second.

Jos Buttler: Though he is not England’s leading run-scorer in this series, Buttler remains the Three Lions’ most potent weapon. Following an outstanding 2022 Indian Premier League season, the 31-year-old dominated this series, scoring 162 runs from only 70 deliveries in the first match.

Buttler’s innings included seven fours and twice as many sixes, and he also remained unbeaten. However, he did not bat in the previous match, and the job was completed by England’s top order.

Netherlands vs England Head to Head

As one would expect, the Englishmen have completely dominated the head-to-head records. In one-day international cricket, these two teams have met five times before, with England winning all five times. The Netherlands, on the other hand, has defeated England twice in the game’s shortest format.

Netherlands vs England Toss Prediction

The team winning the toss will prefer to bowl first.

Netherlands vs England Pitch Report

The batters have fared well in the two games played at the venue, and the bowlers have struggled to contain them. The same can be expected in the upcoming match, with the team winning the toss preferring to bowl first due to the rain factor.

Netherlands vs England Prediction

Given that this is essentially a dead rubber match, Morgan and England’s think tank may decide to test their bench strength and give their star players some much-needed rest. Regardless, the class disparity between these two sides will always be a major differentiator, and we expect the Three Lions to whitewash the men in orange.
