Teams Preview

Netherlands Preview

Scott Edwards' side won the recent tournament in Nepal. The team has made giant strides in the last 12 months, punching above their weight and defeating big opponents. Edwards would like to make a good start to this series as they build their campaign for the upcoming World Cup.

Max O'Dowd and Michael Levitt have done well in recent months, and the side expects a good start from this pair. They will expect runs from Vikramjit Singh, Sybrand Engelbrecht, and Scott Edwards in the middle order. Teja Nidamanuru, Logan van Beek, and Bas de Leede add firepower to this batting lineup, making it strong.

The side expects early wickets from Vivian Kingma and Fred Klaassen to put the Scottish side under pressure. Logan van Beek strengthens the bowling attack and will look to do well in the middle overs with Aryan Dutt and Bas de Leede. Michael Levitt and Sybrand Engelbrecht add depth to this attack.

Netherlands Predicted Playing XI:Scott Edwards (c & wk), Michael Levitt, Max O’Dowd, Sybrand Engelbrecht, Teja Nidamanuru, Vikramjit Singh, Vivian Kingma, Fred Klaassen, Logan van Beek, Bas de Leede, Aryan Dutt

Scotland Preview

Richie Berrington's side is enjoying a good run in this format. They recently won the three-match series against the United Arab Emirates and will look to build on that momentum. However, they take on a strong side in this game, and Berrington expects a strong show from his players against the hosts.

The team needs a good start from George Munsey and Brandon McMullen, as the Dutch side has a strong bowling attack. Matthew Cross, Richie Berrington, and Michael Leask add experience to the middle order and will look to build partnerships. Jack Jarvis and Chris Greaves will look to add quick runs in the lower middle order and take the side to a big total.

Bradley Currie and Jack Jarvis will look to grab early wickets and put the hosts under pressure. Safyaan Sharif and Mark Watt are the key bowlers for the side, and they will look to do well in the middle overs. Michael Leask and Chris Greaves must do well in supporting roles as the Netherlands batsmen will take them on.

Scotland Predicted Playing XI:Richie Berrington (c), George Munsey, Brandon McMullen, Matthew Cross (wk), Michael Leask, Jack Jarvis, Chris Greaves, Mark Watt, Safyaan Sharif, Bradley Currie, Gavin Main

Winning Prediction

Scotland comes here with momentum, but the lack of variety in the bowling attack is a weakness. They will need a good bowling performance to challenge the hosts, who have a strong batting lineup. The Netherlands have their key players in good form and depth in the batting lineup. We expect a close game, but the Netherlands have a slight edge.

Prediction: Netherlands to win
