NED vs BAN Dream11 Prediction Fantasy Cricket Tips Possible XI Pitch Report: ODI World Cup 2023 Match 28 | Kolkata Pitch Report

The Netherlands will take on Bangladesh in the second game on Saturday (October 28) in Kolkata. Both teams are coming on the back of defeats and will have to win the game if they are to give themselves even the slightest of chances to qualify for the semi-finals.

The Netherlands suffered a mammoth 309-run defeat against Australia in their previous game. Bowling first, they leaked 399 runs, with all their bowlers, barring Colin Ackermann, conceding more than six runs per over. While batting, the Men in Orange were bundled for 90, with no batter crossing the 30-run mark.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh lost their fourth consecutive game of the tournament, as South Africa gave them a 149-run hammering. Firstly, they conceded 382 runs, with most of their bowlers giving away plenty, especially in the death overs. In the batting department, it was a one-man show, as Mahmudullah notched up a magnificent ton, whereas no other batter crossed even the 25-run mark.

In this article, we will look at some fantasy cricket tips, the possible playing XIs, and the Kolkata pitch report as part of our Dream11 fantasy coverage in this World Cup.

ODI World Cup 2023 Match 28: NED vs BAN Possible Playing XIs

NED vs BAN Dream11 Prediction: Fantasy Cricket Tips

Netherlands:

  • Colin Ackermann will have to step up to cover for a misfiring opening pair. He has 137 runs at an average of 27.40 in five innings this World Cup. Ackermann also has four wickets at 35.25 runs apiece.
  • Bas de Leede has had an outing to forget against Australia. He is a much better player. Bas has 382 runs, averaging 34.72 and striking at 93.17 in 12 ODI innings this year. He has also taken 24 wickets at 24.66 balls apiece.
  • Scott Edwards has the most runs for the Netherlands this year. He has scored 574 runs at an average of 44.15 and a strike rate of 106.49 in 17 ODI innings in 2023. Edwards also has five fifties to his name.
  • Logan van Beek has taken the second-most wickets for the Netherlands this year. He has 20 wickets at an average of 29.15 and a strike rate of 32.15 in 12 ODI innings. Logan also has two four-wicket hauls.
  • Paul van Meekeren will enjoy bowling in Kolkata. He has bowled well throughout the tournament but has been unlucky at times. Overall, Meekeren has 12 wickets at 42.08 runs apiece this year.

Bangladesh:

  • Litton Das has looked well in patches this World Cup. He has 177 runs at an average of 35.40 and a strike rate of 83.89 in five innings in the tournament. Litton also has two fifties.
  • Najmul Hossain Shanto hasn’t fired as expected in the competition. However, he has been Bangladesh’s leading run-scorer in ODIs this year. Shanto has 772 runs, averaging 42.88 and striking at 84.55 in 19 ODI innings in 2023.
  • Shakib Al Hasan can’t be left out. He has struggled with the bat, but worked on his batting after the defeat against South Africa and will look to score big. His bowling might be very effective against the out-of-form Netherlands batters.
  • Mushfiqur Rahim has 760 runs at an average of 44.70 and a strike rate of 88.37 in 20 ODI innings this year. Rahim also has six fifties and a century. He has also amassed two fifties this World Cup.

  • Shoriful Islam has 22 wickets at an average of 25.90 and a strike rate of 27 in 13 ODI innings in 2023. He has swung the ball consistently and will get extra help in Kolkata. Shoriful could snare a few crucial wickets.

Eden Gardens, Kolkata, Pitch Report and Weather

The pitch in Kolkata has always suited the batters, with the ball skidding on the bat. There will be some extra bounce and pace in the pitch for the pacers to exploit, especially under the lights. The team batting first must post more than 300 to be on the safer side.

The temperature will hover around 31°C, with minimal chances of rain.
