SA vs NED Dream11 Prediction Possible 11 Pitch Report: ODI World Cup 2023 Match 15 | SA vs NED Dream11 Prediction Today | Dharamsala Pitch Report

South Africa are on fire. They have started this tournament in magnificent fashion, smashing the highest-ever World Cup score and then smashing Australia. Next up is the Netherlands, and while the Proteas are undoubted favourites, they need not forget Adelaide in last year’s T20 World Cup.

So, any South African complacency can surely be written off. The top order, spearheaded by Quinton de Kock, will be seeking to set another strong platform for their excellent middle order. The bowlers, who were relentless and outstanding against Australia, will be after a repeat in the quest to move to the top of the 2023 World Cup standings.

Indeed, the Dutch face a tough test but they can take heart in their first two performances. They were in the game for long periods against Pakistan, before each of their top seven made a double-figure score in the defeat to New Zealand. Early wickets in what could be helpful conditions for pace bowlers can create a sense of deja vu for the Proteas, and who knows what can happen from there.

Match Details

  • Date: October 17, 2023.
  • Location: Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala.
  • Time: 2:00pm (India), 10:30am (South Africa & Netherlands).

SA vs NED Dream11 Prediction: Fantasy Tips

South Africa:

  • Quinton de Kock has struck two centuries in two matches in this World Cup.
  • Temba Bavuma will be seeking his first big knock of this tournament. The Proteas’ captain has been excellent in ODIs this year, with 680 runs at an average of 68.0 and strike rate of 101.2.
  • Aiden Markram is in rare form. South Africa’s number four has belted two centuries and two half-centuries in his past five ODIs, including the fastest-ever ton in World Cups against Sri Lanka.
  • Markram belted 175 and 51 against the Dutch earlier this year. He also took three wickets in that two-match series.
  • David Miller smashed 91 (61) against the Netherlands in the same game where Markram hit 175. Since the start of 2021, Miller has hit 1,075 runs at an average of 51.2 and strike rate of 89.7 in ODIs.
  • Marco Jansen should enjoy conditions at Dharamsala. He dismissed Vikramjit Singh in their meeting earlier this year. Expect Jansen to test the Dutch with his height and bounce.
  • Kagiso Rabada is South Africa’s leading wicket-taker so far in this World Cup with five. Rabada looked in excellent touch in helpful conditions under lights at Lucknow, where he took 3/33 against Australia.

Netherlands:

  • Vikramjit Singh makes regular starts in ODIs. In fact, 24 of his 27 innings have been double-figure scores, but has converted just 25% of those to a 50+ score. How will he fare today?
  • Bas de Leede is vital to the Netherlands’ hopes. Two games ago, he produced an excellent all-round display vs Pakistan (4/62 and 67). This year, de Leede has scored 370 runs (avg. 46.2, SR 98.7) and taken 20 wickets (avg. 23.6, econ. 5.91).
  • Can Scott Edwards deliver? Since the start of 2022, the Netherlands captain has scored 1,087 runs at an average of 43.5 and strike rate of 95.8 in ODIs.
  • Aryan Dutt has dismissed Quinton de Kock once in five balls in ODIs, without conceding a run.
  • Paul van Meekeren can be a factor in Dharamsala conditions. He has picked up three wickets in two matches so far in this World Cup, including with the short ball.

Other Stats and Facts

  • Head-to-head: Matches 7, South Africa 6, Netherlands 0, N/R 1.
  • Temba Bavuma struck 96 runs in two matches against the Netherlands earlier in 2023. This included a score of 90.
  • Tabraiz Shamsi took 3/25 in his previous ODI against the Netherlands.

Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala, Pitch Report and Weather

This will be the third game at Dharamsala in this World Cup, but the first day/night game. In the previous two matches, the Bangladesh seamers found some joy against Afghanistan and Reece Topley was outstanding against Bangladesh. Under lights and at altitude, the ball may nip around.

There is a chance of thunderstorms at around 2-3pm in Dharamsala. But, conditions should be fine after that. However, the concern is how the rain impacts the outfield, which has come under scrutiny so far in this World Cup.
