NED vs PAK Team Preview:
The Netherlands (NED) will be hosting Pakistan (PAK) in the first ODI match at Hazelaarweg in Rotterdam on Tuesday. The Netherlands lost two-match T20I series against New Zealand at home earlier this month but put on some impressive individual displays. They lost the final T20 World Cup Qualifier match against Zimbabwe but qualified for the mega tournament in Australia. The management has recalled the veteran batter Wesley Barresi for this series as seven key players are missing the squad due to their involvement in The Hundred and The Royal London One-Day Cup 2022.
Pakistan enter this fixture after their 1-1 Test series draw against Sri Lanka last month. They have won both of their last ODI series against the West Indies and Australia. Pakistan have named a strong squad to face the Netherlands. The highest-ranked pacer Shaheen Afridi is included in the squad but captain Babar Azam has revealed that he will not be risked for two matches considering his recent recovery from a knee injury he suffered on the Sri Lanka tour. Pakistan have won all of their last three matches against the Netherlands and are expected to dominate this match and series.

NED vs PAK, 1st ODI Pitch Report:
The pitch at Hazelaarweg is excellent for the pace bowlers in white-ball cricket. In the last 2 matches played here last year between the Netherlands and Scotland, both the teams failed to score over 250 runs in an innings. In the last match, the Netherlands managed to defend a 164-run target on this pitch against Scotland.
Pakistan’s pacer Shaheen Afridi is a doubt despite recovering from a knee injury.

Top Picks for NED vs PAK Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batters
The World No. 1 batter leads the ICC ODI batters chart by 77 points to second-placed Imam-ul-Haq. He has been in form of his life with three hundreds and two fifties in the six ODI matches this year. He also scored two fifties and a century in the recently concluded Sri Lanka Test series.
The experienced Dutch batter has scored 1049 runs in just 25 ODI innings at an impressive average of 45.6 and a strike rate of 70.49. He will be a key batter for the Netherlands in this series.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
The in-form all-rounder is in good form since his return from the injury he suffered in PSL 2022. Shadab was excellent in the Vitality Blast 2022 with 134 runs and 9 wickets. Shadab has taken 69 wickets in just 49 ODI innings at an average of 30.82 and an economy rate of 5.11 so far.
Top Picks – Bowlers
The right-arm pacer will be a key bowler for Pakistan in the absence of Shaheen Afridi and Hasan Ali. He took four wickets in the first ODI match against West Indies and was excellent in Vitality Blast and County cricket before that.
The in-form all-rounder took 10 wickets in Pakistan’s last two Test matches against Sri Lanka last month. He took seven wickets in three ODI matches against West Indies, including 4/19 in the second match.
Top Picks – Wicketkeeper
The Dutch skipper smashed three fifties in three ODI matches against England in June this year. He has scored 692 runs in just 20 ODI innings at an average of 38.44 and a strike rate of 83.47 so far.

Mohammad Rizwan, Scott Edwards (vc), Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq (c), Tom Cooper, Wesley Barresi, Shadab Khan, Logan van Beek, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Wasim, Aryan Dutt.
NED vs PAK Risky Captaincy Choice:
The star Pakistani wicketkeeper batter needs only 18 runs to complete 1000 runs in ODI cricket. His numbers in the 50-over format are poor, compared to T20I and Test cricket stats. He has scored only 982 runs in 47 ODI matches at an average of 28.05 and a strike rate of 86.51.
Logan van Beek:
The experienced right-arm pacer has taken 19 wickets in 14 ODI matches at an average of 32.31 and an economy rate of 5.23 so far. He took two wickets in the first T20I match against New Zealand but failed to make an impact in the last match. In the Netherlands’ last ODI series against England, he managed to take only one wicket in three matches.
Player you should avoid:
The 19-year-old speedster is expected to make his ODI debut for Pakistan in this match with key pacers missing the fixture. He has taken 33 wickets in 13 Test matches so far but you should avoid the youngster for this fixture due to his lack of experience in white-ball international cricket.
