NED XI vs POR Dream 11 prediction

NED XI vs POR Dream11 team tips for European Cricket Championship 2021

Top tip: Best batsman

Musa Ahmad, one of the top performers in ECS T10 Capelle 2021, is rated as the top batsman for the NED XI vs POR game.  The top-order batsman has aggregated 469 runs in his European cricket career and will hope to begin his ECC 2021 campaign on a high.

Top tip: Best bowler

Md Siraj Nipo is Portugal’s best bet with the ball. The 33-year-old spinner has grabbed 33 wickets in 31 ECN matches, and could use his experience to toy around with the Netherlands XI’s top order in ECC 2021. 

Top tip: Best all-rounder and wicket-keeper

Portugal’s Najam Shahzad is the top all-rounder for the NED XI vs POR clash in ECC T10 2021. The 33-year-old has a record of 397 runs in 22 ECN games and has also bagged 14 wickets.

When it comes to wicket-keepers, Francoise Stoman is an experienced campaigner. The Portugal gloveman has accounted for one caught dismissal and one stumping in four ECN matches, and will look to play an important role behind the stumps on Monday besides also making his presence felt with the bat.
