Malaysia must win this match to stay alive in the series, since they have lost their previous 2 matches. Despite playing well in their first game, they lost to the Netherlands by 15 runs and then a terrible batting display in the 2nd match made them lose to hosts Nepal by 9 wickets.

The Netherlands are just one step away from reaching the finals of this tournament. They had an excellent last game against Nepal, where they won the match by 3 wickets. The Netherlands are currently placed 2nd in the table with 4 points, and a win here against Malaysia will confirm their final spot.

Top Picks for MAL vs NED Dream11 Match:

Top Picks ­Batsmen

Opener Syed Aziz got scores of 7 and 27 runs in the last 2 matches. He is getting better and better and we can expect him to score more runs in the all-important game against the Netherlands.

Bas de Leede was the player of the match in the previous match against Nepal for his impressive batting display in the run-chase. He remained unbeaten on 81* runs from 42 balls.

Top Picks ­All-Rounders

Sharvin Muniandy has scored 48 runs in 2 matches at a strike rate of 137.14, with the highest score of 28. In his T20I career, he has accumulated 262 runs and has even picked up 19 wickets.

Netherlands skipper Pieter Seelaar is a must-pick from the all-rounders’ category. In 3 matches in this series, he has scored 54 runs at an average of 54, and with the ball, he has scalped 3 wickets at an economy of 6.4.

Top Picks ­Bowlers

Anwar Rahman is the most economical bowler for Malaysia in this series. He picked up one wicket at an economy of 6.32. Overall in his 13 T20I matches, he has scalped 14 wickets.

Paul van Meekeren went wicketless in the 2 matches he has played in the series, but he has picked up 47 T20I wickets in 41 matches with the best figures of 4/11.

Suggested Playing XI No.1 for MAL vs NED Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Virandeep Singh (c), Scott Edwards, Ben Cooper, Max O’ Dowd, Bas de Leede, Syed Aziz, Pieter Seelaar (vc), Sharvin Muniandy, Paul van Meekeren, Pavandeep Singh, Anwar Rahman

Suggested Playing XI No.2 for MAL vs NED Dream11 Fantasy Cricket:

Shafiq Sharif, Virandeep Singh, Ben Cooper (vc), Max O’ Dowd, Aminuddin Ramly, Bas de Leede (c), Syed Aziz, Pieter Seelaar, Vivian Kingma, Pavandeep Singh, Anwar Rahman

MAL vs NED Risky Captaincy Choices:

Sharvin Muniandy showed glimpses of his batting in the first two matches, scoring close to 50 runs. He can roll his arm whenever the team needs him to and he is a risky captaincy pick.

Even though Max O’ Dowd has scored a hundred in this series, he is a bit inconsistent sometimes and hence you can take a risk while picking him as your Dream11 fantasy team skipper.

Player you should avoid:

Malaysia skipper Ahmad Faiz hasn’t performed to his standards with the bat in this series and his credits are too high to include in your Dream11 fantasy team.
