SC-W vs ND-W Dream11 : Scotland and Netherlands look to seal fifth place for themselves and put behind them the previous failings in the tournamnet
While the final of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier is slated to be played at the same time as this clash, the anticipation for the fifth place contest hasn’t quenched in nature. With Scotland and Netherlands, two of the most promising sides from the European region clashing heads against each other for the spot, this match promises to be a riveting affair.
After enduring a sordid outing in the group stage fixtures as they failed to progress to the ensuing round, Scotland and Netherlands saw themselves pummel to the classifications matches. Competing for a ranking from spots 5-8, the two sides looked to finally showcase their true cricketing abilities to the world and prove that they have a bright future in the fraternity infront of them.
And that is just what they went about doing with Scotland and Netherlands making light work of Namibia and USA respectively. Chasing the 95 run target USA had set infront of them, Netherlands ended up cruising to a win, chasing down the target with 14 balls and 9 wickets to spare as they lambasted a dwindling USA outfit.
Elsewhere, Scotland’s win was even more comprehensive in nature with the side finally unlocking their true potential and expressing themselves properly for the first time in the marquee tournamnet. The pulsating 10 wicket win was as profound as they get as the side outshone Namibia in both the departments, sending back the African side to the pavilion for 68 runs before prevailing in their run chase by 10 wickets in just 8.4 overs.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
Rain stayed away in the recent clashes played here and today looks to be no different. We should be in for a full fledged 20 over clash with the surface playing out heavily in the bowlers favour, seeing the ball nibbling into and way from the batsmen with the pacers flourishing over here.
With their being immense deviation for the pacers in the first part, the side winning the toss will definitely be looking to come out and chase on this wicket.

What serves Scotland better is the depth in their batting order with the side laden with names who know how to navigate their way on the trickiest of surfaces. Scotland will be in for a stern test but should persevere to win this one.

SC-W vs ND-W Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
We have kept Sarah Bryce in our side whenever Scotland have been in play in the tournamnet and she’s going to retain her place in our setup today as well. Her 37 in 30 balls saw her rake up a match inning innings along with Jack in the previous clash and it’s a performance we envision her emanating today as well.
SC-W vs ND-W Dream11 Batswomen
Her partner in the 68 run stand for the opening wicket, Lorna Jack comes into our side as well. Escalated up the batting order to open for the first time this tournamnet, she looked more than familiar with the role, taking no time in getting adjusted to her new responsibly. Her 25 runs were impressive, seeing her provide the perfect assistance to Bryce as she kept rotating the strike with every ball to keep the scoreboard ticking.
Elsewhere we have chosen two bats from Netherlands, bringing in last match’s top scorer, opener Denise van Deventer along with Miranda Veringmeier.
SC-W vs ND-W Dream11 All-Rounders
Kathryn Bryce moved down the order the last time around but that didn’t deter her from roping in a solid haul of points for us with the all-rounder picking up 2-6 with the ball to stifle her opponents. She’s indispensible to our side and comes in for us for this clash along with Rachel Scholes while Heather Siegers is the first player we are choosing from the opposition.
Her two wickets with the ball were impressive the last time around, while with 31 runs in the opening slot, Sterre Kalis comes in as well for us.
SC-W vs ND-W Dream11 Bowling Order
One narrative which is nailed down from today’s clash is the fact that wickets will tumble at will, especially on Netherlands’ side with Scotland being so effective and formidable with the ball. At the forefront of their bowling effort are Abtaha Maqsood and Katherine Fraser, two players who snared 4 wickets in between them the last time, seeing us opt for both of them.
Iris Zwilling from Netherlands completes our side for this match.
