South Africa vs Netherlands ODI World Cup


Having stayed away from the limelight and started with two wins, South Africa will look to make it a hat-trick as they play the Netherlands. This match #15 of the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will be played at the HPCA Stadium in Dharamsala on Tuesday, October 17.

South Africa have been systematic with their demolition of their opponents in the first two matches. The markets are resonating with this and aren’t offering much value on their win against the Netherlands. Instead, it is the opening partnership area that I am once again having a go at. I am backing the Proteas to post the highest o/p score.

  • South Africa have posted the highest o/p in 9 of their last 11 matches in India (ODIs)
  • South Africa have posted the highest o/p score in 7 of their last 12 matches (ODIs)
  • South Africa have posted the highest o/p score of the game in 5 of their last 7 World Cup matches (ODIs)
  • The Netherlands have conceded the highest o/p score in 6 of their last 8 World Cup matches (ODIs)

Head to Head


South Africa have won six of their seven ODIs against the Netherlands with the other ending without a result.

The last time these two sides played was in two ODIs in March – April this year in South Africa, when the hosts won both comfortably.

South Africa Form


South Africa are 3rd in the points table before Sunday, with four points and a positive run rate of 2.360 after two matches. They defeated Sri Lanka by 102 runs and Australia by 134 runs.

The Proteas have been riding high on the batting heroics of Quinton de Kock (two 100s) and Aiden Markram (1x100 and 1x50). With the ball, Kagiso Rabada (five wickets) has been impressive in both games.

With matches against England, Pakistan, New Zealand and India scheduled in four of their next five, South Africa have no choice but to win this match and stay in the top-four hunt.

South Africa Team News


South Africa were served well with their team in both games with only Gerald Coetzee and Tabraiz Shamsi swapping their places. This match could once again see a swap with Coetzee coming back in.

Netherlands Form


The Netherlands are third from the bottom without any points from their first two matches. They were beaten by Pakistan by 81 runs and then by New Zealand by 99 runs.

The batters haven’t done their job yet, although there are high hopes on Vikramjit Singh. All-rounder Bas de Leede (85 runs, five wickets) is nearly topping both the charts for them, highlighting their dependence on him.

It is fair to say that the Dutch have happy memories of beating the Proteas in the T20 World Cup recently, but this isn’t a format they have excelled.

Netherlands Team News


Netherlands may look to make a change with Logan van Beek and Saqib Zulfiqar likely to be in contention once again.

Verdict

South Africa have been one of the standout teams, especially with their comfortable win against Australia. This match against the Netherlands is one they are unlikely to let their steam off which puts the Dutch on the backfoot. It is the Proteas who are heavy favourites and there isn’t much value on their win. I am instead putting my money on South Africa scoring the highest opening partnership.
