Pakistan Tour of Netherlands 2022: Netherlands vs Pakistan – 1st ODI Preview and Updates

Pakistan and the Netherlands begin their three-match One-Day International series on Tuesday morning at Rotterdam’s Hazelaarwed Stadion. The hosts last played in this format in June, when they were defeated 3-0 at home by England. Earlier in the month, Pakistan defeated the West Indies by the same score. Continue reading for a preview of this game. The first ODI begins at 11:00 a.m. local time.

This summer, the Netherlands has struggled to get results against the big cricketing nations in this format and in IT20s. If they can be competitive, this first ODI will be a success.

Pakistan is in excellent form in ODIs, having lost only one game in 2022. This will be their first away ODI of the season, but we expect them to be far too strong for the Netherlands.

Netherlands vs Pakistan Toss Prediction

In this format, both teams prefer to bat first and put pressure on the opposing team by posting a high total. If either captain wins the toss, we expect them to bat first.

Netherlands vs Pakistan Pitch Report

Although this pitch will turn, seam and swing bowlers will benefit the most from it. We anticipate a par score of 290-310.

Short sunny periods with cloud cover for the majority of the day. During the game, the temperature will rise from 22 degrees to a high of 27 degrees.

The fans in Rotterdam should be in for a treat with players like Babar Azam and Shaheen Shah Afridi eager to get as much match practice in before the Asia Cup later this month. We expect the Netherlands to fight hard in this game, but we expect Pakistan to win easily.
