Match Details:

The match 36 of the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 between the Netherlands and Bermuda will be hosted by Dubai International Cricket Stadium in Dubai.

Preview for Dream11 Fantasy

The Netherlands were schooled by PNG in their previous encounter and one can think it was a one-off bad game for them. The problem solely lies with the top-order batting where none of the batsmen are batting long. Colin Ackerman and Ryan ten Doeschate would like to put up a better performance to solidify the position for the playoffs.

The reason, why the Netherlands is winning games in spite of batting failures, is due to their bowling. Especially Roelof van der Merve has been a  revelation with his fast off-breaks and brutal hitting. Van der Gugten, Meekeren and Brandon glover take up the pace bowling duties and have chipped in all the matches.

Coming to Bermuda, their ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier 2019 campaign has gone downhill for them in all ways possible. Apart from Delray Rawlins, none of the batsmen seems to possess a decent technique to score freely. Their bowling doesn’t exude confidence as well. Apart from Stovell and Leverock others look like makeshift bowlers who don’t have enough skill set to run through the opposition batting.
