SC-W vs ND-W Dream 11 Team: Top of the table decider set to see fireworks explode when these two teams face off against each other today afternoon
Netherlands Vs Scotland ICC Women’s Qualifiers Europe Best Dream 11 Team
The second round of this fixture is back in as many days with the two favourites taking on each other once again in the space of a day as they both compete for top spot in the league standings. With Netherlands all but certain to get past Germany in their opening match of today, the onus falls back squarely on Scotland’s shoulders to come out with the two points from this one and make things competitive and feisty at the top yet again.
When the two teams had fought it off yesterday, it were world number 23rd ranked Netherlands who had stunned Scotland after putting on a delightfully overwhelming performance with the ball. Getting off to a flying start after the opening stand put on a quick fire partnership off 47, Netherlands quest towards piling on a big total was hampered midway after they ended up tumbling infront of Germany’s spin attack.
It was eventually Denise Van Deventer’s 35 off 33 balls which took her side to a healthy 123-8, one which Netherlands managed to successfully defend after Heather Siegers maintained her composure in the concluding over as she picked up two wickets to give away just the 5 runs.
Now back at it today, the top ranked side at a world ranking of 13, Scotland will be looking to get back at Netherlands and put in a performance which justifies the high status accorded to them. They’ve already assured themselves of a spot in the ICC T20 Qualifiers and topping the tournament would help them wrap up the ODI Qualifiers spot as well, something the country will be looking to do today.
After yesterday’s cracker of a contest, picking up a winner from this is no longer an easy prospect. While Scotland are by some distance the finest and most sensational side among the three, Netherlands are giving them close competition with their young and upcoming players looking to showcase their immense repertoire of skill set on the big stage.
At the end of the day, we see Scotland putting up a flawless display today and rectifying their mistakes from day one. This is also Netherlands third match within the space of a day, something that will leave the side drained against a comparatively rested German side. Fine margins to come to play in this one with Germany holding their own to come out with a win.
Wicket-Keepers for SC-W vs ND-W Dream 11
Coming up with 20 run innings against both Germany and Netherlands, Scotland’s Sarah Bryce has emerged as one of the most terrific bat from the tournament up till now. In batting line-ups where runs are tough to come past by, she’s showed her articulate skill set, showing the much needed composure and guile to craft her way to solid performances.
Batting Order for SC-W vs ND-W Dream 11
Sterre Kalis (24 off 31 balls) and Heather Siegers (25 off 21 balls) took their side to 32 runs in just 4 overs against Scotland to parry away their opening bowlers and help give their team the perfect platform for the middle-order batsmen to revolve around. That sees us opt for Kalis straightaway with Denise Van Deventer also being roped in after she held fort for her side despite wickets tumbling at the other end.
From Scotland its Becky Glen whose 23 off 31 balls helped get her side off to the right start against Netherlands and we see her emulating the same meticulous performance today as well.

Coming in from Netherlands is Heather Siegers, a player who not only scored 25 in the opener’s role but also showed the stomach of a fight in the concluding over to pick up a couple of wickets and see her side get past the finishing line.
On the other hand, we have opted for a trio of all-rounders from Scotland with Rachel Scholes, Katie McGill and Sam Haggo all making an advent into our playing 11. The three in between them picked up 6 wickets against Netherlands yesterday, the two apiece to deter their opposition for registering a total that looked well in excess of 140 at one point.
