The second ODI between the Netherlands (NED) and Pakistan will be played on Thursday, August 18 at Hazelaarweg Stadium in Rotterdam. The match will start at 2:30 PM IST.

NED vs PAK Dream11 prediction

The first ODI between the two teams saw the Netherlands put up a great fight before falling a mere 16 runs short of the target as Pakistan took an early 1-0 lead in the series. Riding on Fakhar Zaman’s century, the visitors had posted 314/6 in 50 overs and while the Netherlands did get close, Pakistan’s pace bowling charge made sure they didn't get over the finish line.

Judging by the look of things, it’s evident that the surface of Hazelaarweg is more suited to batters, hence one can expect the confident visiting team to come out victorious on Thursday again.

NED vs PAK Dream11 team tip for 2nd ODI

Top tip: Best batter

Pakistan opener Fakhar Zaman is our top pick for this position. The 32-year-old scored his seventh ODI ton during the first ODI and was rightly adjudged as the Player of the Match. He may seem like an expensive investment at 9 credits, but the fact that he returned with 137 fantasy points last time out makes it a worthy pick.

Top tip: Best bowler

Between Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf, our recommendation would be the former for two main reasons. Firstly, he will cost just 8 credits and secondly, he can accrue bonus points by bowling a few maiden overs. He was the pick of the bowlers for Pakistan in the last match after finishing with figures of 3/51 and will be a threat to the Netherlands batters.

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Pakistan all-rounder Shadab Khan missed out on his half-century by a mere two runs in the first ODI. And while he failed to get a wicket, Shadab still managed to keep things tight and tally an impressive 66 fantasy points. Given the form he is in, the talented all-rounder is likely to get you more fantasy points come Thursday.

For the wicket-keeper spot, Netherlands’ Scott Edwards should be given the utmost priority. The middle-order batter scored 71 runs in the first ODI and was arguably his side’s best player throughout the match. He looks in good form and is likely to have an impact on the second ODI as well.

NED vs PAK probable playing XI

NED playing XI (probable): Vikramjit Singh, Max O’Dowd, Wesley Barresi, Bas de Leede, Tom Cooper, Scott Edwards (captain and wicket-keeper), Teja Nidamanuru, Logan van Beek, Tim Pringle, Aryan Dutt, Vivian Kingma

PAK playing XI (probable): Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam (captain), Mohammad Rizwan (wicket-keeper), Khusdil Shah, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Mohammad Nawaz, Agha Salman, Harris Rauf, Naseem Shah
