The first ODI between the Netherlands (NED) and Pakistan (PAK) will be played at Hazelaarweg Stadium in Rotterdam on Tuesday, August 16. The match will start at 2:30 PM IST.

NED vs PAK Dream11 prediction

The Pakistan cricket team will carry strong momentum into their maiden bilateral ODI series against the Netherlands, with series wins against West Indies (3-0) and Australia (2-1) already in the bank.

Meanwhile, the Netherlands cricket team will look to return to winning ways, having lost their last five ODI matches.

With a strong head-to-head record against the Netherlands (three wins in three matches), Pakistan are fancied to triumph in the first ODI and take a lead in the three-game series.

NED vs PAK Dream11 team tips for the 1st ODI

Top tip: Best batter

With 4,442 runs in 89 ODIs and the number one ranking in the Men’s ODI batting rankings, it goes without saying that Babar Azam must be your first-choice pick as a batter. The Pakistan skipper amassed 181 runs in the recent three-match ODI series against West Indies, and will look to continue his fine form against the Netherlands. Azam is available for 10.5 credits.

Top tip: Best bowler

Netherlands will entrust Logan van Beek to test the patience of the in-form Pakistan batting order in the first NED vs PAK ODI. The right-arm medium fast bowler has grabbed 19 scalps in 14 ODIs and is poised to open his account against Pakistan in style. At 8.5 credits, van Beek is a strong differential player to consider.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Bas de Leede can be the best all-rounder to consider for the fixture. Although primarily a batting allrounder, de Leede’s return of 338 runs and three wickets since January 2021 warrants a place among the top Dutch players to include in fantasy cricket teams. He is available to fantasy players at 9.0 credits.

For a wicket-keeper, Pakistan’s Mohammad Rizwan is our recommendation. The highly-rated player has recorded 982 runs and been involved in multiple dismissals from behind the stumps in his career. Priced at 9.0 credits, Rizwan’s raw hitting power with the bat and equally impressive glovework skills behind the stumps make him a top buy, with the surety of gaining lots of points.

NED vs PAK probable playing XI

NED playing XI (probable): Vikramjit Singh, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards (captain and wicketkeeper), Bas de Leede, Max ODowd, Shariz Ahmed, Logan van Beek, Arnav Jain, Aryan Dutt, Vivian Kingma, Ryan Klein.

PAK playing XI (probable): Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan (wicketkeeper), Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Khushdil Shah, Agha Salman, Mohammad Nawaz, Shadab Khan, Haris Rauf, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Shahnawaz Dahani
