ND-W vs GR-W Team: Netherlands look to assure themselves of top spot by trouncing Germany for the second time
Germany Vs Netherlands ICC Women’s Qualifiers Europe Best Dream 11 Team
The last match of the ICC Women’s Qualifiers Europe, but far from being an inconsequential one. While for Germany this is the last time to make a name for themselves and show that they are capable of better things, for Netherlands elsewhere the script is different. A massive win here would assure them of first place in the league standings, a highly revered spot the side would be looking to reserve for themselves.
Currently locked on the four points alongside Scotland, Netherlands know the first place is going to come down to net run-rate. With both them and Scotland having won and defeated each other the one time apiece, it’s all about emulating the same rapturous performance against Germany today as from their earlier encounter against them.
For Germany, the tournament has shaped up to be a torrid one at best. The world ranking 31 country have been trounced by Scotland and Netherlands, two sides who have made full use of the paper thin batting line-up Germany have doled out this tournament. And playing in their second match of the day today, Germany will for once be looking to put out a stiff challenge in Netherlands’ face, a side who have too much riding on this pivotal encounter.
Going by current form, their previous match and the strengths of the two squads, its Netherlands who win this all day long. The last time the two teams had met, Netherlands had gone onto register a massive 196 run target for Germany who could manage only a paltry 65-7 in reply to be put down by 131 runs.
What that runaway win had done for Netherlands was give them not only the two points but see their net run-rate propel right to the echelons, a performance they’ll be looking to resonate today as well They are by far the superior unit between the two and we see this being yet another one-sided match which Netherlands win without any problems.
Wicket-Keepers for ND-W vs GR-W
Responsible for her side’s massive 196, an unprecedented and overwhelming total, we have opted for Babette de Leede to hold fort for us in this facet. She’s a run scorer extradonaire, someone who knows fully well the demands of succeeding at the highest level and we expect them to emanate the same performance today as well.
Batting Order for ND-W vs GR-W
Continuing from that same sensational innings, we have picked out Sterre Kalis yet again. If Netherlands get to bat first today, we see them making things extremely tepid for Germany once more and piling on a momentous total. Kalis will be at the forefront of things yet again and in her we have a safe bet.
Denis Van Deventer will be partnering Kalis for the culminating T20 of the series while we are getting in Janet Ronalds as the lone pick from Germany over.
All-Rounders for ND-W vs GR-W
One of the most flawless and dependable players of this series, Heather Siegers from Netherlands has regaled us in a slew of delightful performances. She’s reverberated sublime performances without any difficulty, she is the penchant she has for scaling her side’s showing with tangible efforts.
We get in a duo from Germany over here to compensate for the picks from their side in the form of Stephanie Frohnmayer and Christina Gough. Things are bound to get extremely tricky in this match for their side and if Germany are to make things tough for Netherlands, they need this duo to punch above its weight and imbed an equation of success.
Bowling Order for ND-W vs GR-W
We didn’t have second doubts in picking out a two woman partnership of Caroline de Lange and Iris Zwilling from Netherlands. Picking up wickets when Germany are batting is regulation and these two well versed bowlers will know just the areas to hit to get the ball to sing to their tunes.
From Germany we have Suzanne McAnanama representing us. If her side are to have any chance of winning this, the specialist bowler needs to pitch the ball right on the money, getting it to frisk and deviate ominously to cause the opponent’s bats troubles.
Captain And Vice-Captain
We have opted for Sterre Kalis to be our captain for this one while Heather Siegers is selected as our vice-captain.
