The defending champions England have been abject with their performances all through. Even though they start as favourites, the Netherlands can’t be ruled out easily. Our focus is in a different area though. I am putting my money on England posting the highest opening partnership of the match.

  • England posted the highest opening partnership in 5 of their last 7 matches (ODIs)
  • England posted the highest opening partnership in all 6 matches against the Netherlands (ODIs)
  • The Netherlands posted the highest opening partnership in just 1 of their last 7 matches (ODIs)
  • Scott Edwards has 3 fifties in his 3 matches against England (ODIs)

Head to Head


There have been six ODIs between England and the Netherlands over the years. All six have been won by England. The last of those came in June 2022 when England toured for a three-game series.

England Form


England are bottom of the points tally with only two points from their seven matches. Their lone victory came against Bangladesh in their second match of the tournament.

The defending champions are now scrambling to stay in the top-eight spots to qualify for the Champions Trophy. They have four points to play for – this match and the one against Pakistan. Winning both will give a fighting chance to finish in the top-eight.

That would need their misfiring batting unit to contribute. Only Dawid Malan (286 runs) has aggregated more than 200 runs while only Adil Rashid with ten wickets has taken scalps in double digits.

England Team News


England could finally give Harry Brook and Brydon Carse a game as they look to find the right combination. Mark Wood and Liam Livingstone could sit out for England.

Netherlands Form


The Netherlands are 9th in the standings with four points from seven matches. Their wins have come against South Africa and Bangladesh, while performing admirably against other teams.

With a game against India remaining, the Dutch know that this could be their best bet to move to six points and stay in the top-eight hunt as they are currently tied with Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.

The Dutch have been performing collectively with two batters aggregating 200+ so far – Scott Edwards and Sybrand Engelbrecht. With the ball, the pace trio of Paul van Meekeren, Logan van Beek and Bas de Leede have aggregated 10+ wickets.

Netherlands Team News


Vikramjit Singh was benched for the last match and could probably sit out once again. Teja Nidamanuru may also get a game in place of Saqib Zulfiqar.

Verdict

Despite both teams not in the top-four race, there’s a lot of context in the England vs Netherlands match. With the race to top-eight getting crowded with at least four teams in a chance to finish eighth, the winner here gets a chance to solidify their claims. I am not dipping into the winners market and instead looking at the opening partnership claim. Back England to win the opening partnership score, while Scott Edwards could enjoy with the bat.
