NED vs ZIM Dream 11 Prediction: : After an emphatic 49 run win in first T20I, NED look to take the series in the second and final match today
Netherlands Vs Zimbabwe Second T20 Best Dream 11 Team
This is turning out to be a year which Zimbabwe would want to put behind them at the earliest. Their jittery form on the international arena has refused to quell with the side failing to even traverse past Netherlands in their latest soiree on the international arena.
After having been put down with disdain in the ODI series, Zimbabwe’s predicament has refused to seize in the T20 series. Monday saw them put in a shambolic display with both the bat and ball, ceding 199 runs while bowling first before they registered yet another gaffe of a showing with the bat. A batting line-up way more experienced than Netherlands were bowled out for 150, seeing Zimbabwe’s horrendous run continue as they went down 1-0 in the T20 series.
Having being swept apart in four ODI series now against South Africa, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Netherlands, Zimbabwe who are set to take on Ireland in July need something to click for them and click fast. And today’s second and concluding T20 encounter offers the best opportunity for them to finally imbed a match winning performance and carry that momentum into their ensuing series.
Meanwhile for Netherlands, who just gained status as an official ICC member in July itself, today’s match is a massive opportunity to impress yet again. They’ve come across as a good unit in the previous three contests, showing the acumen and composure needed to impress at the big stage and will be looking to win their second series in succession.
Its go to be Netherlands who win this as well and register a 2-0 series win here. The shortest format of the game has seen them play resolutely and without fear with the top-order putting in an exceptional display to leave Zimbabwe dry.
In what was arguably Zimbabwe’s biggest strength, the bowling order has disappointed bitterly. The side have been forced to chop and change regularly, something which hasn’t allowed anyone to get into their stride and garner the much needed momentum. We see Netherlands putting on a big total here and leave Zimbabwe always chasing the game, one they’ll eventually go on to lose.
Wicket-Keepers for NED vs ZIM Dream 11
We are bringing in both of the wicket-keepers for this one. Despite Brendan Taylor failing to impress the last time around, we are going to continue with him given he’s one of the most capped players in his side and can easily go onto register a big score.
From Netherlands, Scott Edwards sees himself earn a call-up into our side after his stellar display with the gloves yesterday.
Batsmen for NED vs ZIM Dream 11
Our batting picks begin with the entire top-order from Netherlands making a foray into our side. They’ve continued on the same stem from where they left on in the 50 over format with Max O’Dowd and Ben Cooper putting on an 84 run stand for the first wicket to provide their side with the perfect platform to come and build from.
From Zimbabwe it’s their highest run scorer over the course of the previous Craig Ervine who is going to make a way in our unit. He failed in the ODI format but with the T20 one way more to his liking, he scored a stalwart 49 off just 39 balls to start off his side’s chase in the right manners.
All-Rounders for NED vs ZIM Dream 11
With his man of the match performance in the previous match, waging a lone battle whilst wickets tumbled around him, Netherlands’ Roelof Van Der Merwe becomes the first player to be included in our side. His 75 runs off 39 balls was a profound innings, one which saw him soak up all the pressure without flinching and walk his side to the finishing line.
From Zimbabwe we have opted for Sikandar Raza, once again picking up just the lone player from their side.
Bowling Order for NED vs ZIM Dream 11
With Zimbabwe completely unsure of what their best bowling line-up is Chris Mpofu stepped up massively on Monday to come good with the ball. His spell caused jitters in Netherlands’ batting line-up, incurring a middle-order collapse to see Zimbabwe restrict the opposition to below 200.
Having wrapped up our picks from Zimbabwe, we now turn our attentions to Netherlands and we are getting in an entire trio of bowlers from their unit. The flummoxed nature of Zimbabwe’s batting line-up means we are assured of points galore from Brandon Glover, Pieter Seelaar and Fred Klaasen and have decided to opt for all three of them.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Netherlands’ most exceptional batsmen Max is our captain yet again while the vice-captain pick is of Craige Ervine.
