NED vs SCO Dream11 : Scotland look to complete a second win over Netherlands today with the winner progressing to the summit clash
A series which was going nowhere but on a downward spiral for Netherlands has been revived by an incredible result yesterday for the outfit. Pulling off an unlikely win against Ireland, one which was unfathomed across the arena, Netherlands managed to keep their chances of making it to the final alive, one they’ll be looking to build on come today.
In what was as incredible as unprecedented a result as it was, Netherlands ended up pulling off a pinch perfect run chase yesterday as they went onto seal an emphatic 6 wicket win in their pursuit of 182. Regular partnerships were built up along the way after their bowlers kept pulling off wickets at regular intervals to restrain Ireland to a well achievable score on a solid and hard batting friendly wicket.
Elsewhere, Scotland come into today’s encounter having met Ireland previously as well, a match where they ended up on the wrong side of the green. Making 193 while batting first, their lapses riddled bowling unit was taken apart, sent to the cleaners as Ireland won by 4 overs with 14 balls to spare. It leaves the side with the one win, one that came against Netherlands as they navigated their way to a massive 58 run win, making today’s match a potential semi-final with the winner cantering into the summit clash.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With rain finally exiting the arena of this series, the pitch has come out and thrived even more. What was already a track made only for batting has opened out immensely to see the ball come onto the bat nicely, allowing the batsmen to cream it to the fence and pile on the runs.
With the wicket set to maintain its identity across the course of the 40 overs, the side winning the toss will be looking to chase with a clear idea of how to traverse past their chase.

The last time these two sides met, Scotland ended up piling on 252 before Netherlands managed 194 in reply, a match which almost touched the 450 run mark as both the sides unleashed a carnage on the bowlers.
We’ll begin with Netherlands’’ match winners from yesterday’s math against Ireland first, getting in opener Max O’Dowd whose 69 along with Ben Cooper’s 91 in 56 balls score the two put n a mammoth 144 run partnership for the first wicket. Elsewhere we have three names come into our side from Scotland, choosing for their entire top-order, players who play out a majority of the overs for them today.

We’ll begin with Netherlands’ Pieter Seelar with him having scored 96 in 49 balls the last time these two sides met, a score which came at a time when wickets were tumbling at the other end.
Elsewhere from the opposition we are selecting Richie Berrington with the player capable of opening his arms unabashedly in the death overs.
